Portland is filled with hidden gems. Technologists of great aplomb who are quietly working away building awesome things. And it’s always nice when they take a few minutes to share some of their amazing insights. This month, New Relic has managed to wrangle one of those folks to speak—Ward Cunningham, inventor of the wiki—at their FutureTalks series.
Agile programming and Wiki hypertext emerged together out of a single vision of completing each other’s work. Twenty years later we see opportunity to direct this collaboration toward more difficult problems. This is not your father’s wiki. We reexamine fundamental questions about what it means to write and to program. Then we show how Federated Wiki uses both to make a better world.
And it’s exceptionally timely. Given that the wiki just celebrated a birthday.
The event will be held March 31 at New Relic. Doors open at 6:00PM.
