Teaching Mashups 101 at Mashup University

John Herren teaches RailsDave Berlind announced a couple days ago that I’ll once again be doing the introductory talk for Mashup University, the structured sessions that preceed the Mashup Camp unconference. This talk is the same subject matter I covered in January at Mashup Camp 3 at MIT. The goal of this session is more of a pep-rally to get folks excited and curious about all of the great tools and tech available to the mashup community, and to get newbies acquainted to the ideas around the mashup environment. Basically, it’s a mashup State of the Union address, with a little how-to thrown in for good measure. The intro session is really fun talk to give, and I’m honored to have Dave and Doug extend the invitation.
