HNLondon Message Board › Talks at Thursday's meetup
The next meetup is barely two days away and some of you are wondering what wonderful talks we have planned. Without further ado I give you:
Janice Fraser - UX for Hackers
Devin Hunt - Backbone.js in the wild
Sarah Malter - Five steps to the perfect pitch: How to present your venture to VCs with confidence and style
Mike MacCanna - Chrome Extensions for Business and Pleasure
Charmaine Leung - Entrepreneurship - Founders Dating: Startup Weekend
In case you are not familiar with our headline speaker, Janice Fraser was a co-founder of design firm Adaptive Path and served as the company's first CEO. What she does not know about UX is probably not worth knowing and she will be sharing some of her insights on Thursday evening.
