First week in Colombia.

Learning Android is not easy. If this week is the first time in your life you see a "for loop" it is even harder. To be motivated enough, we begin each day with a video of a famous entrepreneur. Let's see if the vision, experience and motivation of each can guide our steps.

First video. The first day Elon Musk (Paypal, Tesla, SpaceX) shared his experience after the third failure in a row of launching a rocket into space with SpaceX. Would you have kept going until the fourth trial?

Second video. The second day, our famous Steve and his opinion on the secret of life: "Once you discover that you can change the life you live in, you are not the same again."

Third video. Finally on Friday Drew Houston, Dropbox CEO, talked of his experience with the advice Paul Graham told his group when they were starting: keep it simple. "Ok guys, sure Dropbox does 1000 cool things, but what is the focus?." Also interesting was his story of their first big showcase in front of investors. "Is it risky to fake having lost you presentation and recover it directly from your product, Dropbox?"
