Edward Thomson

Speaking

I am always thrilled to speak at conferences or user group meetings, or appear on podcasts. (Schedule permitting, of course). I prefer to speak on topics related to version control or open source technologies, and can speak to a variety of audiences from non-technical to deeply technical. Please contact me if you have a speaking opportunity.
