Just got an e-mail letting me know that audio from the Future of Web Apps Miami conference is available. Woot!
For us online news types, these talks are a great chance to get exposed to what’s happening in web technology and to think about how we can apply it to our situation.
These were the talks I thought were the best IMHO:
Cal Henderson from Flickr talks about the software development process and gives boatloads of excellent advice you need to hear if you’re developing applications.
Gary Vaynerchuk from Wine Library TV talks about the importance of passion in growing a community (this one really applies to news sites).
Kevin Marks from Google talks about Google’s OpenSocial and the future of social networking.
Blaine Cook from Twitter talks about the future of Twitter and its architecture.
Leah Culver from Pownce talks about opening your web app to the masses (something news sites need to get better at, without jeopardizing their revenue that is..)
