Trying to Suck Less: Making Web 2.0 Mean Something

Anil Dash, Vice President of Professional Products, Six Apart, Ltd.

Date: Wednesday, July 26
Time: 9:30am - 9:45am
Location: Portland Ballroom

Most Web 2.0 services are really open with your data and their APIs -- so why aren't they open source as well? Six Apart's Anil Dash will talk about what we can do better with our applications, including how to make sure we're making stuff that actually matters. You'll walk out with all the free (beer and speech!) code you need to build an Internet-scale infrastructure for your web service, along with some good advice on what's actually worth doing.
