    Two posts in one day, you lucky people! Carry on reading this one and then head over to the other where we talk about the team behind CommCon.

    Today the CommCon 2019 team is delighted to announce that David Duffett will be our first Keynoter at CommCon 2019! David has been part of the Open Source RTC community for as long as I’ve been a part of it and recently founded a new business to help geeks with their public speaking skills called “Let the Geek Speak”. Funnily enough David was the person who encouraged me to first speak publicly, at Astricon way back when.
