  • Keynote by Chris Wanstrath, co-founder of Github, at Startup Riot 2009
    Tagline: "love what you do".

    GitHub has been described as “Facebook for developers.”

    "Like the YouTube effect, this was not something we had planned for or anticipated. We were just trying to make a site we would use and love. Turns out, you’re not all that different from other people living similar lifestyles. If you love something, chances are others will, too."

    "I said it before and I’ll say it again: the most important thing I’ve learned is to love what you do. I’m one of the ten most popular users on GitHub, not because I’m a founder, but because I’m a heavy user. I’ve had weeks where I got totally addicted to the site and didn’t get any work done. At our company, that’s a good thing."
