Pecha Kucha finalists for Business of Software 2009

This year’s Pecha Kucha finalists have got their work cut out for them. Twenty slides, twenty seconds each, it’s the haiku of presentations. Here they are:

Jurgen Appelo, Chief Information Officer of ISM eCompany on “Managing agility: from complex to simple”

JD Brennan, Distinguished Technologist at HP, on "The 6.6 minute design school”

Daniel Kuperman, Director of Marketing and Product Management of Quadrant Software, on “5 marketing secrets for software success”

Glen Lipka, Director of User Experience and Product Design of Marketo, on “UX design – building products people love”

Dave O’Flynn, Integration Product Manager at Atlassian, on “Learning about teams by jumping out of planes” 

Alex Papadimoulis, President of Inedo and Founder of The Daily WTF on “How not to be featured on The Daily WTF”

Adam Ruth, Senior Software Developer at Admin Arsenal, on “Developer addictions”

Mark Stephens, CEO of IDR Solutions, on “Asteroid impact – are you a big lizard or small and furry?”

For an example of pecha kucha, here’s Alexis Ohanian (co-founder of Reddit) on how to start, run and sell a web 2.0 startup. Alexis won last year’s contest.

    No links? We can’t see the slides?

  2. Cory,
    Sorry, I wasn’t clear – they’ve been selected to speak. I’ll put the presentations online once the Pecha Kucha has taken place (mid November),
