Summer is wrapping up, and so too is New Relic’s FutureTalk Summer Series. Over the last few months hundreds of attendees have been fortunate to hear from amazing speakers like Sridhar Solur, Trace Smith, Jessica McKellar, and more. However, the fun isn’t over just yet. We have one more awesome event up our sleeve, and we hope you can make it!
On Wednesday, September 17th, head over to New Relic’s San Francisco HQ for a FutureTalk with our own Ward Cunningham. Best known as the creator of the first wiki, Ward is a champion for design patterns and agile software development. He’s spoken on object-oriented programming, hardware-software integration, and of course, wikis, at numerous conferences around the world, and we’re thrilled to feature him as our next speaker.
Get the details on Ward’s talk below, and RSVP now!
The Federated Wiki and the Song of Code and Content
In Ward’s talk, learn how now, 20 years after Agile programming and Wiki hypertext emerged out of a single vision of completing each other’s work, we see an opportunity to direct this collaboration toward more difficult problems. Ward will reexamine fundamental questions about what it means to write and to program, and show us how the Federated Wiki uses both to make a better world.
