This coming Saturday, September 28, will be the Houston Techfest. This is annual conference that is free to attend and seems to grow larger and better each year.
The conference will be at Reliant Center and has many great talks on the schedule. I did not have the time this year to submit a talk but I will be sitting on the Business of Software discussion panel during lunch.
I have never been disappointed with the selection of talks at Techfest so you should come out if you are in the Houston area and have some free time this Saturday.
