U2U is a highly interactive, in-depth technical conference which focuses on the needs of the entire Mentor Graphics user community. The primary goal is to deliver immediately useful technical content. Attendees from around the world network with other customers and gain practical knowledge and product information found only at this conference.
This year's conference will feature special keynote speaker Craig Newmark, founder of Craigslist.com. The Craigslist Web site is now one of the Internet's most popular gathering sites, used across the world for everything from finding homes and jobs to bartering merchandise. The site challenges the foundation of existing businesses by turning services for which people used to pay money for into free ones. Craig, a former systems engineer for IBM who also worked for Charles Schwab, will share his thoughts on the Craigslist phenomenon.
