Twitter Hashtags: We are going to run two hashtags this year – they are for different purposes.

  • #BoS2011 – the official conference hashtag. Use this to tag your tweets and comments about the event and share with your followers and everyone following BoS on twitter or via the live stream. 
  • #BoSMeet – If you want to meet people at BoS, want people to know your interests, where you are or who you are with, use the hashtag #BoSMeet.  

Hang on, did someone say, 'Live stream'? Oh yes they did! we are going to stream the talks live this year. Tell your friends to register on the Business of Software Homepage and they will get an email reminder when they start.

Workshops: You need to make sure you are registered for the workshops running on Monday afternoon and Wednesday lunchtime/early afternoon. List of workshops here.
