As some of you may know, I co-founded the mesh conference four years ago. Last year the founders of mesh created a new and distinct event for designers and developer called meshU (new design launched today). meshU is a one-day conference that is full of practical advice and inspiration that’s great for anyone building projects online.
There will be 15 speakers organized into three tracks that run simultaneously (design, development and management) and conference participants are welcome to attend any session they want at any time.
This year I am pleased to announce we have a star-studded lineup of speakers. Here is a snapshot of the speakers we’ve announced so far, and the workshops/presentations they will be delivering:
Chris Wanstrath, GitHub – Building a Business with Open Source
Ilya Grigorik, AideRSS – Event-Driven Architectures
Pete Forde, Unspace – Is that an iPhone in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?
Ezra Zygmuntowicz, Engine Yard – Building Scalable/Decoupled Web Architecture
Dominic Bortolussi, The Working Group – Experiments on selling agile development projects. Are Estimates the new ‘Spec’?
meshU will be taking place on April 6th, 2009 in Toronto. If you are a FreshBooks user and you travel to Toronto for the event, we’d love to take you out for a bite to eat and perhaps a visit to the FreshBooks headquarters, so please let us know if you are coming to town.
