The magnanimous Dave McClure dispels the myth around marketing and design, and gives you quantitative takeaways to help run your marketing like a science, not a dark art.
Dave McClure Dave has been geeking out in Silicon Valley for over twenty years, and has worked with companies such as PayPal, Mint, Founders Fund, Facebook, LinkedIn, SlideShare, Simply Hired, O'Reilly Media, Intel, Microsoft, and Twilio. Years ago he did real work like coding or marketing or running conferences, but these days he mostly does useless stuff like sending lots of email, blogging, and hanging out on Facebook and Twitter.
Watch former Pixar CTO Oren Jacob sit down with Tim Milliron, former Pixar Supervising Technical Director and current Director of Engineering at Twilio, to talk about what it took to scale Pixar from startup to world-leading animation studio.

In this talk i'll share some of the technological tools, engineering processes, and cultural values we've used to enable that growth and to support massive scalability and rapid deployment of new services.
