  • Learn and discover: A carefully curated speaker line up shares hard-earned ideas about ways to run a better software business and build software people want to use.
  • Hallway Track: The attendees are incredible – open, willing to help and learn from each other. We help you meet great people – not just in the breaks. Meals – breakfast, lunch and dinner are included, birds of a feather tables at lunch give you time with others with specific questions.
  • Civil & grown up: We value the opportunity to spend time with like-minded people from around the world. We don’t have DJs or hold events in nightclubs. We don’t organize bar crawls. We think a business event should encourage conversation. How about you?
  • Get practical advice: From people who have been through the same things as you, whether they are speakers or guests.
  • Work on, not in, your business: A chance to get out of your business and re-evaluate what you are doing, and where you’re going, how you are going to get there.
  • Leave inspired: Go home with a killer to do list.
  • Be part of a community that cares:  You’re part of a global network of people who care about the software they build and the companies they’re helping build.
