Moving Fast at Scale: the slides, and a reprise in NYC

Posted by on March 19, 2011

Wow. We had SO MUCH FUN doing the “Moving Fast at Scale” microconference in Austin for SXSW. We got some really awesome feedback on the talks. A huge thanks to the 200+ folks who showed up for the talks and to hang out with us on a beautiful spring afternoon in Austin. Here’s a panorama of the scene (click for a larger version):

A lot of folks asked us to record the talks in Austin and we weren’t quite able to get the logistics right in time to make that happen, but take heart — we’re going to do the microconference again on our home turf in NYC on Thursday, March 31 from 7-9pm, and we’ll be live streaming it and recording it for those of you who missed it. If you’re local, sign up here to see the talks in person at Etsy HQ in Brooklyn. The live stream will be at and the recording will be appear there when we’re done (we’ll link to it here — no need to sign up in advance for that).

Links to our slides from Austin are below. These talks were very brisk by design — each was 20 minutes or less.

We’re looking forward to doing it again. See you at the event in Brooklyn! (or over the interwebs!)
