While it doesn’t get a lot of attention from the rest of the world, the Eastern European startup scene is rife with talented developers, and How To Web is a conference that intends to support, inspire and connect the region’s ecosystem with a top-class program of talks, case studies, panels and workshops.
Taking place in Bucharest, Romania, on 9 and 10 November 2011, How To Web features over 30 international speakers and panelists. These include hacker, inventor and futurist Pablos Holman; Eric Wahlforss, co-founder and CTO of SoundCloud; Mark Randall, Chief Strategist at Adobe Systems, and Thai Tran, founder and CEO of Lightbox and a former project manager at YouTube and Google. No commercial ‘sales pitch’ talks are allowed – this is all about providing useful, high quality information.
Topics up for discussion will include digital mobile trends; the development of the daily deals business model; the fundamental steps that Software-as-a-Service businesses have to take in their development, and much more.
It’s a two-track event that also includes a Startup Challenge competition, an Expo section, exclusive parties and excellent networking opportunities. Over 750 attendees are expected to attend from more than 10 countries, including regional startup community leaders – this is a major event in the Eastern European tech calendar.
