So we have a couple of great new speakers for the event ready to nail the Scaling Craft theme.
Given one of the most popular themes at Monki Gras last year was how to practice distributed development I wanted Genuitec to come – just like RedMonk the company doesn’t have a central location. Everything is done remotely. There is no office.
So I invited Tim Webb – chief architect for Genuitec’s ALM stuff to speak. He lead the SDC and Pulse products from initial inception through to launch, growing in 5 years to an established user base of over a million desktops.
The other confirmation today comes from Greg Avola, cofounder of @untappd – the beer checkin app and official social network of Monktoberfest and Monki Gras. Untappd is 100% bootstrapped – and Greg can give some great insights into how craft beer businesses scale. He has MOAR DATA on the subject than anyone else.
Meanwhile the contingency plan for location is nailed down and the event will be once again be at Conway Hall in Holborn. Stoked!
I guess I better get that eventbrite set up so you can get some tickets and stuff
