This year I’ll be speaking at Minnebar on April 25, 2020. Minnebar is an unconference hosted at the Best Buy campus in Richfield, MN. It typically caters to those in the technology space: designers, developers, project managers, and software people. If you’ve never been, I’d highly recommend it as a primer to the MN tech scene. Keep an eye on the website to register. Here’s a short description:

You can register for Minnebar later this spring. You can register for my talk here.
