We were saving our final two speakers to drum up ticket sales, but last week, with a whole three months to go, we sold out! So without further ado, here are the final two speakers for the product event of the year – Mind the Product 2013.
Update (23/09/2013): Sadly Kathy Sierra had to cancel at short notice, but she will be joining us another year and the excellent Andy Budd has take her place! See the up to date schedule on the conference site.
Blogger, author, and trainer Kathy Sierra has for a long time passionately espoused her insights on how to use “brain friendly” techniques to create passionate users.
Kathy Sierra worked as a game programmer, interaction designer, and designed and taught New Media/Interaction Design courses at UCLA Extension and Java programming at Sun Microsystems before creating the best-selling Head First series of books for O’Reilly. She was the original creator of one of the largest software developer communities, javaranch.com, and is the author of a Technorati Top 100 blog, “Creating Passionate Users.”
