Why should I come to Business of Software?

A short video on BoS 2014 and why people loved it

  • Practical learning from the best in the field:  Speakers at previous conferences have included Dharmesh Shah (Hubspot), Seth Godin, Joel Spolsky (Stack Exchange), Clayton Christensen, Alexis Ohanian (Reddit) Geoffrey Moore, Scott Farquhar (Atlassian), Eric Ries, Kathy Sierra (JavaRanch), Jason Fried (37 Signals)
  • The insights of your peers: As well as the speakers, the BoS community is made up of senior managers – founders, product people, marketeers, development – who are at similar stages and working on similar problems. Drawing on their experience is a very important part of what people get from BoS. Come prepared to learn from those ahead of you and teach those coming up behind.
  • Space to think and plan for the next 12 months:  Delegates often use BoS as a regular planning exercise, leaving with adjusted strategies and new plans for all areas of their business. Some find solutions for chronic problems that have been festering for months or years. Others simply enjoy benchmarking their achievements against the industry.
