Happy new year everyone! So it's time for the first DevTank of 2012. Here's what we have in store for you, returning to the offices of Forward in Camden.
Martin Buhr - Load Testing
Martin Buhr is the founder and developer of Loadzen.com, the rest of the time he works as the Creative Director of Technology at Soho-based agency Reading Room. He will be talking about the importance of load testing in building a startup and how Loadzen tackled the challenge of load testing in the cloud.
Jon Bradford - Tech predictions for 2012
Jon Bradford is the Director of Springboard, The Startup Accelerator. He will be presenting a summary of what is predicted to happen in Tech in 2012, what London VCs are talking about and advise you on how to prepare for it; whether you are starting your own startup or have to grow yours, Jon will provide you with some clue to 'pivot' - to use the buzzy concept of Eric Ries Lean Startup book - in such a way that you take full opportunity of 2012!
