Win a ticket to OSCON Amsterdam!

As I mentioned several weeks ago, OSCON is coming to Europe for the first time ever and will be held in Amsterdam on 26th and 27th of October.


Some pretty cool tech com­pa­nies will be there – GitHub, DataS­tax, Google, Thought­Works, Pay­Pal, Heroku and Spo­tify to name a few! I will be talk­ing about “Mod­el­ling Game Econ­omy with Neo4j” there. And as a build-up to the main conference I’ll also be doing a webcast on Elm on Sep 15th.


The good folks at O’Reilly has been very kind to offer a FREE ticket to OSCON (worth €855 + 21% VAT) to one lucky reader of this blog!
