O'Reilly Media and TechWeb announce the return of Web 2.0 Expo San Francisco
, the annual event for designers, developers, entrepreneurs, marketers, business strategists, and venture capitalists building a web for the 21st century. This year, Web 2.0 Expo centers on the theme of "Platforms for Growth," helping businesses choose and leverage the right web platforms for success. Web 2.0 Expo San Francisco is May 3 – 6, 2010 at Moscone West.
"It's not just about how companies use the web as a platform," said Sarah Milstein, Web 2.0 Expo Co-Chair and TechWeb General Manager. "It's about how they fit into an ecosystem or create new, larger ones. What we're interested in this year is the new wave of companies that have the potential to build new economies and exploring exactly how that is done."
Celebrating its fourth year, Web 2.0 Expo continues its tradition of inspiring and educating the tech industry by providing unparalleled educational programs and valuable networking opportunities. This year, the event launches One Day Intensives, "mini-conferences" that feature expert speaker panels in a participatory classroom experience. Web 2.0 Expo Intensives feature "Lean Startup" with Eric Reis of StartupLessonsLearned.com and "Applied Communilytics" with Sean Power and Alistair Croll of WatchingWebsites.com.
