Obie Fernandez is an interesting guy. He is an author of one of the seminal books about Rails called The Rails Way. He is also the founder of one of the most successful development firms in our market, HashRocket. Finally, he is also passionate about entrepreneurship, constantly mentoring and teaching others how to nurture their dreams of starting their own companies. If any of you attended the New Relic sponsored panel discussion at RailsConf, you will know I speak truth.
It’s natural then that Obie has created a conference just for web development companies and independent consultants called BizConf. Scheduled for August 20-21 at the beautiful Amelia Island Ritz Carlton, BizConf promises to be an incredible experience for a limited number of entrepreneurs. (Don’t be put off by the Ritz Carlton part, there is a very affordable package rate for attendees.)
New Relic is pleased to be a sponsor of BizConf. Many of our customers and affiliates will be in attendance. Its sessions are very much aligned with our own ideas and values about running a company – treat everyone with integrity and respect, compete fairly, and service your customer well.
We wish Obie and BizConf much success. Registration is limited to the first 75 people. Go.
