Leaving on a jet plane.. here I come Appsterdam

In about one week I'm finishing up my current gig and heading out in to the wide world.  First stop.. Appsterdam!

Inspired by Mike Lee's talk at YOW, driven away by the awful Melbourne winter and encouraged by friends and family visiting Europe at the same time, it was an easy decision to go check it out.

I'm hoping to spend time reading, learning, catching up with interesting people and generally looking for the next opportunity.

In particular I'm interested in trying the lean startup approach.  I'm hoping my experience with agile, lean, kanban and cloud will mix together with mobile and ux into something great.  Stay tuned to this blog (subscribe to the rss) and get in touch on twitter.

  1. Ben, I am jealous :)
    Consider the Sydney startup scene. There's been a huge amount of hype lately about the US or Europe being a better place, but the facts don't bear this out.
    There is a huge amount of support around here for free and genuinely helpful been-there-done-that folk at hand.
    I was at an interesting talk by Lord Mayor of Sydney and Peter Davison (early stage investor in PayPal) last night, which backed this up.
    Enjoy your trip though !!
