Making Real Sh_t: Chris Hughes at PhoneGap Day 2013

Could you make Pong today? I mean really make it. Not make something just like it, but make it exactly, as it was made in 1972.

That's one of the central ideas of Chris Hughes' (@chews) talk at PhoneGap Day 2013, titled "Making Real Sh_t." He explores the ideas of creation and composition in terms of code - for instance, whether developers appreciate the things that have come before and allow them to assemble, to some degree, rather than create - and shares his own experiences with each.
