Join fellow technologists, entrepreneurs, and investors for the London Enterprise Technology Meetup (LNETM) on Monday 10th June from 7:00pm - 9:00pm, in partnership with Stack Overflow Careers and the LSE Department of Management.
This month will include LNETM’s first keynote, where we will welcome Joel Spolsky - expert software developer, author and world renowned speaker, in addition to being founder of Fog Creek Software and Stack Exchange (Stack Overflow).
What is it that you really need to know when starting a software business? Joel will walk through the difficult choices that need to be made, with plenty of stories and insight from his years of experience in building software and companies, to help the audience understand what’s needed to create the future of software.
See Joel’s full biography below.
In addition to this keynote, there will also be two company demo presentations:
- Undo Software provides a high performance reversible debugging tool specifically for Linux; UndoDB. By augmenting familiar debugger operations with reverse counterparts, bugs that would usually take days or weeks to solve can be found and fixed in minutes. UndoDB brings reversible debugging to complex, real-world applications.
- BehavioSec offers solutions that enable a new layer of protection against identity theft. By continuously monitoring the user’s behavior in a session, BehavioSec’s technology identifies users by their keystroke rhythm, mouse/gesture movements and user patterns. BehavioSec’s products enable active authentication, preventing information theft by detecting intrusions while they are happening.
Companies will demo for 15 minutes each (with 10 minutes of audience Q&A after each demo). The company line up is varied instead of themed, so that there will be something for everyone and also opportunities to learn about different areas.
Sign up today and don’t forget to tell your friends/colleagues.
If you have any questions, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Looking forward to seeing you all soon!
