HashiCorp's First "All Hands"

HashiCorp's First "All Hands"

This was the first ever "All Hands" presentation done at HashiCorp. HashiCorp was incorporated November 2013 so the company was about 3 months old at the time. We had just hired our first employee and this "all hands" was given to 3 people!

I've uploaded the deck as-is. Please keep in mind that the 3 of us were barely older than teenagers at the time and parts of this deck reflect that. 😄

This presentation was given on Feb 7, 2014. The date of public upload is Feb 2020.
