Jackson's talk:

Best Coast? Lessons from the San Francisco Startup Scene

Five years ago, Jackson was leading a UX group at a great agency in DC, and loved working with startup clients. The more he worked with them, the more he wanted to actually be on the ground, a part of one. Amidst a sour economy that dried up any startup-friendly soil in DC, Jackson moved to San Francisco, where he spent time at a growth-stage company, as employee #5 of a trendy startup, and has now started a company of his own. Now, coming back east to live in Boston, he’ll share what makes the Bay Area unique, what makes it ridiculous, and how to find the perfect tech and design culture for yourself here at home.
