HOW GREAT DIGITAL PRODUCTS ARE MADE

Central Hall, Edinburgh
Thursday 18 August 2016

Product/People at the Turing Festival brings leaders in technology to Edinburgh for a sophisticated conversation about how to design and build amazing digital products — and grow the businesses around them. From product management to user experience to hiring and culture, hear how it's done from the people who are doing it.

I was so impressed — the speaker list was world-class, the talks were all incredibly useful, and the overall format was perfect. Everyone in the team came away with a few great ideas after the conference, and we still talk about it months later.
