Public Appearances: 26/27 June, 2012

While I realise that I haven't been posting often (most often on the OpenGamma Blog when I am), and while this is very late notice, there are a couple of public appearances for me coming up in the next couple of days.

London New Finance Panel

Tonight in the City will be the London New Finance FinTech Pitch Night. After the pitch sessions (and I'm looking forward to those quite a bit) there will be a panel: "How do you get a FinTech startup off the ground?" Both Eddie George and I thought the OpenGamma experience might be pretty relevant to the audience, and I'm now on the panel tonight.

Hacker News London Meetup

Tomorrow (27 June 2012) in the Silicon Roundabout area is the monthly Hacker News London meetup. I'm giving one of the presentations, titled "My First Startup Was A Failure." If you're interested in my life before moving to London, this is going to be a pretty good session.

Many of my Faithful Readers will know that I co-founded my first startup at the ripe old age of 23, called Radik Software. There's virtually no evidence online (except for LinkedIn) that this company ever existed, and I've not really spoken about it publicly at all. That's going to change, as I'm going to go through the myriad of mistakes and errors that we made, and how I'm avoiding them this time around.

Slides and video for this talk will be available afterwards and I'll post them to the blog, but if you want to see it in person, there's still availability at the meetup!
