Rackspace SaaS event

I presented to a very knowledgeable audience at a SaaS event that RackSpace put on at Microsoft in London today.

We covered some industry trends, I talked about building a platform for scale, James Murfin from Mural Consulting did an excellent talk on SaaS Marketing and Sean Williams from Collectsoft talked about funding options for SaaS.  There were some great questions.

Here are my slides.

We look forward to working together!
