We are incredibly lucky to have an amazing talk this month! Talk: The Lean Startup: a Disciplined Approach to Imagining, Designing, and Building New Products Speaker: Eric Ries Talk Description: Eric Ries is in town for Agile Vancouver, and he has agreed to do a "slightly-more-technical version of the lean startup talk, with plenty of time for Q&A and discussion." The talk he's referring to is his Lean Startup talk from the recent Web 2.0 expo in San Francisco. For a full description of that talk, see the page at O'Reilly's site. Speaker Bio: Eric Ries is the author of the blog Lessons Learned. He was the co-founder and served as Chief Technology Officer of IMVU, his third startup. He is the co-author of several books including The Black Art of Java Game Programming (Waite Group Press, 1996). In 2007, BusinessWeek named Ries one of the Best Young Entrepreneurs of Tech. He serves on the advisory board of a number of technology startups including pbWiki, Smule, 750i and KaChing. Talk Time: 7:00 Thanks very much to Owen Rogers from Agile Vancouver for setting this up! Note: The "5 minutes & 5 slides" opening talk about Rubish has been postponed to next month so we don't waste time fiddling with projectors, etc.

    I think that the presentation was very good. Just a couple of observations: It would be important to have a more suitable place for this 50+ people presentations. I know that you filmed the presentation and maybe because of this asked Eric not to move around very much in order for him to be in the center of the picture, but he kept on covering with his body the proyection. Another important thing, would be to make available the presentation in some way (maybe you have and I do not know about it).

    Excellent speaker! What I got most out of it were his techniques for startup companies with a very lean approach to developing and releasing a product.

    An excellent speaker who really, I think, spoke to, and inspired, the room. Congrats to the person who managed to ask Eric to speak. A resounding success, I think. I spoke with several people who weren't even Ruby/Rails enthusiasts who were there to interact with Eric, which I found rewarding from a networking perspective as well.
