Three weeks ago, we announced BubbleConf 2012 Amsterdam, a conference for IT tech startups we’re organizing with Nedap and Teixido on design, development, legal aspects and experience sharing. This conference provides the opportunity to learn about many aspects of starting up a tech company, to grow your skill set if you already have a company, and to expand your network. This is made possible by our array of prominent speakers but also through contact with numerous other like-minded people.
BubbleConf 2012 will be held in the monumental Tuschinski theater and we’re pretty excited in making this the best conference ever held in Amsterdam. Don’t forget to get your ticket today to enjoy the early bird discount as this offer will only run for a limited time. The early bird offering will in fact end on July 19th so don’t miss out. That’s like next week!
As outlined in our initial blog post, we will be blogging about setting up a conference of this size as well as announcing a new speaker on a weekly basis.
This week, I have the great pleasure of announcing mr. Egin E. Lengton of Lengton Legal as a speaker at BubbleConf. Egin is probably one of the most interesting people we’ve come across during our time as a consultancy. Not only is he capable of breaking down complex legal aspects into comprehensive bite sized chunks for mere mortals, he also has a lot of experience under his belt in dealing with businesses of all sizes. One thing that sets Egin apart is that he loves to share this knowledge and has a passion for working with startups. And if that wasn’t already enough, he is also very knowledgable on all things IT, making him a valuable asset to any tech company. Perhaps unsurprising, he is also a (co) author of various study books on legal topics as well as a part-time lecturer at the HAN university of applied sciences.
Egin has worked as a legal advisor for businesses all around the world, and in the process, has gained a lot of experience in dealing with legal issues as a result. As such, Egin’s talk will focus on the bare necessities of legal documents a startup needs as well as touch upon common legal issues tech businesses tend to overlook. He will also try to answer IT related legal questions you might have for him. Considering the broad and applicable nature of this talk, it looks to be an essential learning experience for entrepreneurs looking to start a tech product business or IT consultancy.
With Zed Shaw, Juanma Teixido, Laurent Sansonetti and Anton Zykin already announced, that brings our number of announced speakers to 5 with about 3 left to go! Too much testosterone indeed, let’s see if we can change that in next week’s announcement!

His “Learn Code The Hard Way” series has been read by over a million people from all over the world. This is really all an excuse to get to play guitar whenever he’s not writing.
