Tim Romero President, Engine Yard, K.K.

There has never been a better time to be a creative person with programming skills. This presentation will explain how cloud-computing in general, and the Engine Yard PaaS in particular, is helping small teams of developers grow into successful companies with a global reach. 

We'll talk about some of the common mistakes developers make when trying to bring their product or idea to the world and look at some of the best practices that separate the successful ventures and projects from the unsuccessful ones. We'll also discuss new developments at Engine Yard and their plans in Japan.

Tim Romero started out as a programmer in Japan 20 years ago and has since both managed enterprise IT departments and founded and grown several companies here.
