meshU: Worth Travelling For

May 13, 2008

As a founder of the mesh conference (which sold out today), it’s brought me great energy to release something new this year: meshU, a one day event for people who build things online.

meshU is happening next Tuesday, and there are still some tickets remaining. The conference is in Toronto, and I’d say it’s worth traveling for and it will be a great place to meet FreshBooks team members as most of us will be there.

Here is the schedule and this is a snapshot of the extraordinarily strong speakers and their workshops.
