6WunderKinder CTO Chad Fowler to Speak at BubbleConf 2013

By Ninh Bui on August 2nd, 2013

BubbleConf: One day of ideas and action with the most vocal minds from tech, design, UX and business.

BubbleConf is a conference for today’s tech startups on design, development and entrepreneurship by Nedap and Phusion. We aim to bring together developers, designers and entrepreneurs from all over Europe to share their knowledge and war stories with one another. With about 400 attendees last year, we hope to see you at this year’s edition in the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam on September 27th!

Chad Fowler has been a long time friend of Phusion and we’re super excited to have him over at BubbleConf 2013! We first got to know Chad through RubyConf 2008, where we applied for our very first talk abroad, and have since then followed his carreer through InfoEther, its acquisition by LivingSocial and his recent move to Berlin to work as a CTO for 6Wunderkinder.

Seeing as Chad is known as an author of multiple successful books, a well known speaker, RubyConf organizer, Ruby programmer, CTO and so forth, we’ve asked him to give a talk about “whatever he feels is appropriate” for our conference: with such a rich history of competencies, we’re pretty confident that whatever topic he chooses to talk about, he’ll knock it out of the park.
