Keynote Address: The Dark Art of Boatbuilding and Project Management -- A salty look at projects, people and customers.

We are pleased to announce keynote speaker, Art Eaton. A Perl developer and Florida native with experiences growing up in a ship yard, Art has an entertaining and useful message for us all. Taken from the viewpoint that all efficient industrial processes are identical at their core, he examines the IT industry from a boat builder's perspective.

This talk is all about running a successful, professional, and happy boatyard where people find value and comfort in their jobs, the quality of work is high, and customers know what they are getting for their money.

...sort of. Art will be applying business experience gained from his marine engineering, medical, military and IT backgrounds to present you with a sea story about project management with which people in all industries can identify.

Sponsor Spotlight: cPanel


The cPanel & WHM software package is an easy-to-use control panel that gives web hosts, and the website owners they serve, the ability to quickly and easily manage their servers and websites. Developed in Perl and working in the SCRUM development methodology, cPanel seeks highly motivated development team members in our Houston location. Visit http://jobs.cpanel.com for open positions.
