I’m glad that I was selected to speak at self.conference, coming to Detroit this May.
The speakers and sessions are a strong mix of the technical community in this area. In addition to quite a few local speakers, other super smart folks from the midwest are apeaking.
I also want to point out Tony Surma’s talk on “Apps that work when nothing else does.” Tony is a fellow board member for Humanitarian Toolbox, a charitable organization that creates Open Source applications for disaster relief. I’m the president and a board member as well. We’d love to have your help developing these applications. And, as you’ll learn from Tony’s talk, there’s a lot of software product skills you’ll learn developing apps that have to run in a disaster zone.
Self.Conference promises to be a great, great event. Go to http://selfconference.org/ and register today. See you in May.
