The Business of Software Conference USA Program

Business of Software Conference is a single-track conference, every speaker, in the words of Joel Spolsky, would be, “a headline keynote at most other conferences”.

We build in lots of time to network, talk and learn from others. We work hard to connect you with other attendees that can help solve your challenges.

Atmosphere & Approach

Code of Conduct

Attendees are exceptional people who want to be the best they can be in their chosen career. Entrepreneurs, established and emerging leaders, they come to learn from each other, not to party (though there will be plenty of social activity). So many events are about everyone being on ‘broadcast mode’, Business of Software is different, people come to listen and learn from each other, to share their problems and help each other be successful.

Speakers don’t hide away in a VIP Room. Everyone that attends is on this journey together and they want to learn from you as much as you want to learn from them. We help you understand all of the important elements that come together to make great software and great software companies.

This is not a mass produced event. We HATE going to events that promise much and deliver little. We HATE events where you have to bring a telescope to see the stage, where the speakers are whisked off into a secure room straight after their keynote where you were left feeling like you had just paid to listen to a sales pitch. It sucks if you pay good money to attend an event and a treated like one of a large flock of sheep. We will feed you well. You are as likely to sit next to the speaker at lunch than anyone else.

Join us and discover how a conference should be run – for the benefit of the attendees. You will probably not go to another conference again.
