DevTank October

  • Oct 20, 2010 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Once again with have a fantastic lineup of speakers for you this month, as well as the usual beer, pizza and chat. For the technical track we are delighted to have
Jim Webber, Professional Services Director at ThoughtWorks, and renowned REST expert. People often talk about adding REST APIs to their systems. That's because we're struggling with 20th century software metaphors in a 21st century connected environment. You too might have been tempted to indulge in writing REST APIs with JSON and URI templates, but you know it's wrong. So what to do? We know steps 1 & 3 pertain to stealing underpants and world domination. This talk will deal with step 2 - hypermedia and protocols. Puzzled? Good, see you there. For the business slot we have Joe White, CEO of
Moonfruit.com, and a non-exec director of demotix.com. Joe has raised more than $20m of VC funding in the past few years and has previously worked as a consultant at McKinsey & Co and CFO at domain registrar Gandi.net. He will be giving us the low-down on monetising your startup. The agenda will be as follows: 6.30 - 7.00 Arrive and grab a beer 7.00 - 7.45 Jim Webber, "Something, something, something, REST." 7.45 - 8.30 Beer, pizza and chat 8.30 - 9.15 Joe White, "Monetising your start-up - who the hell is going to pay me for what I’m doing?” 9.30 onwards adjourn to The Old Fountain just around the corner

    First chat by Jim was entertaining, easy to listen to and educational. Enjoyed and learnt bits in the second talk but if I can suggest one thing, he needs to speak up a little if there is a next time as we didn't have mics.

    Great setting, beer, pizza and of course content. This was my first time at a DevTank meetup, and it will definitely not be the last.
