Open Source North, A Great Start for a Tech Conference in MN

The OpenSourceNorth conference put on this weekend by Solution Design Group was a rocking success.  Local design, local speakers and just a little local beer made for a good time.

IMG_2174Best Buy had a recruiting booth at the conference and hopefully you had a chance to stop by and chat either with a recruiter or an engineer.  If not check out the BestBuy.com jobs located here.

osn_pic2I had a chance to give a new presentation on how and why engineers should be engineering managers, at least a few of them.  If we ever want more great places for engineers to live and work, someone needs to create them.  Only individuals that understand how software engineering really works can create those places.  Here’s a picture from the conference.

If you couldn’t make it this year, put it on your calendar for next year.
