    OSDC 2013 Keynote Speakers and Panel

*Sam Minnée - Silverstripe**
**9am Monday 21st October*
Sam Minnée, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of SilverStripe, has 
shaped the SilverStripe Suite and is part of its success story as an 
internationally respected Open Source CMS.

Prior to being appointed CEO in April 2011, Sam was SilverStripe's Chief 
Technology Officer for several years, since the company's humble 
beginnings in 2000. He created a CMS that is smarter, more intuitive and 
more enjoyable to use. His focus is on applying modern web development 
techniques to building software that enables the creation of technically 
complex websites and applications.

Sam has a BA in Computing and Philosophy from Victoria University. When 
he's not at work, he enjoys anything from a good book (shameless sci-fi 
fan!) to the next Drum'n'bass gig.
