Webstock 2010 Company Preso


Published on

I attended Webstock 2010 held in Wellington in mid Feb. So inspired by the conference, I did a presentation about it at my work Redvespa Consultants. This is the material for my presentation. The first 8 slide is done by Warren who attend the mobile design workshop, and the rest of it was drew from my memory and 60 pages note. Enjoy.
