Today we welcome two speakers from our upcoming Philly Emerging Tech conference: Yehuda Katz and Russ Danner! Yehuda Katz is the founder of creator of the Starbeam.js and EmberJS framework, among many others. He is also a Philly ETE veteran, having spoken at many of our conferences in the past. Russ Danner is the VP of Product at CrafterCMS, an enterprise-grade headless CMS. He’ll be speaking about how to build and deploy omni-channel solutions, and how to deal with the “tyranny of more.”
