Some Upcoming Talks in Europe

Happy new year! I’ve got some talks coming up this winter and spring that you may be interested in. In both of them I’ll be talking more about building strong engineering teams and how we build with Agile and Lean at Spotify.

Software 2014
Oslo, Norway – February 26-27, 2014

This is the yearly conference of the Norwegian Computer Society. I’ll be talking as part of the Lean development track. My talk is on Wednesday at 9:45.

Sud Web 2014
Toulouse, France – May 16-17, 2014

The format of this conference looks really great. I’m excited that they asked me to speak. I’ll have more details as the date approaches.

If you are attending either of the conferences above, let me know in the comments or over twitter. Really looking forward to meeting up with people.

Speaking at the AMD Fusion Developer Summit – June

If you are planning on attending the AMD Fusion Developer Summit in Bellevue, WA in June, come see me talk about Pixel Bender (probably for the last time!) with Bob Archer. Here is the description of the session:

Pixel Bender is a domain-specific image processing language created by the Adobe Image Foundation, and includes a runtime designed to work well across heterogeneous hardware, scaling efficiently for multiple cores. This runtime currently ships in a number of Adobe’s flagship products. Bob Archer, Technical Lead, and Kevin Goldsmith, Engineering Manager, will talk about the design of the language, compilers, and runtime. They will also discuss how the Adobe system can incorporate complimentary technologies like OpenCL and can scale to accommodate new hardware paradigms like the AMD Fusion processors.

Hope to see you there!
