Having just read Brad Feld’s recent post on Eric Reis’ Startup Lessons Learned conference to be in SF 4/23, I’m here to second his motion http://www.feld.com/wp/archives/2010/04/conference-startup-lessons-learned.html. We’ve had the opportunity to get to know Eric over the past year or so as he’s evangelized & continually refined his Lean Startup philosophy. He’s a sw engineer and an entrepreneur as well as a great writer and speaker. And each shows. He’s led several Workshops for us in Dogpatch, with more to come 🙂 and the feedback from founders in the Labs and the extended community who’ve attended has been incredible.
I’m always impressed by doers (as opposed to folks who theorize about doing) and Eric is a doer. And a very sharp thinker. If you’ve got occasion to be in SF and attend, you should.
