Waza 2013 - Keynote Speakers

Waza (技) 2013 is less than a month away and we are excited to have a full lineup of speakers who will be talking about their perspectives on art and technique. In between the talks, take part in an unique blend of conversation and craft through the hands-on workshops led by artisans teaching their trades from origami creations, to take-home woodblock prints, and even a hand-crafted and dyed quilt. Take part in this celebration of skill and making at Waza 2013.

Waza Keynotes:

Michael Lopp: Rands in Repose

Michael has been blogging since 2002 as his alter-ego Rands in Repose.

Our favorite recent quote: "Engineers don’t hate process. They hate process that can’t defend itself." We couldn’t agree more.

Kirby Ferguson: Everything is a Remix.

Kirby is a filmmaker, storyteller, and remixer. He is known for his fantastic video series Everything is a Remix

Favorite quote: “We are not self-made. We are dependent on one another. Admitting this to ourselves isn't an embrace of mediocrity and derivativeness, it's a liberation from our misconceptions.”

He’s been featured at TED.

Speaker Lineup:

In addition to these fantastic keynotes, we have a full day of sessions that include:

Afterparty, sponsored by Github

Waza doesn’t end after the last speaker leaves the stage. All attendees are invited to join Heroku and Github at the Waza afterparty. Live music, drinks, and a great time is on the schedule.
