Question for you: what do Eric Ries, Jeff Gothelf, Scott Berkun and Kathy Sierra have in common?
Yes, they’re all BoS speakers, no prizes there. They also share a publisher, O’Reilly Media, an organisation which, in its own words, is put on this earth to ‘spread the knowledge of innovators’. After 25 years of working in the technology community, O’Reilly is now a highly trusted organisation in the technology world – I’d be rather surprised if you don’t have an O’Reilly title somewhere in the same room as you as you read this.
It struck us earlier this year that O’Reilly and Business of Software have a lot of values in common around innovation, community and learning. Rather brilliantly, they agree, so today we can announce O’Reilly Media as a media partner for Business of Software 2013 and supporter for the BoS Reading Zone, a space at the conference where you can discover and share some of the best titles in technology.
This is worth talking about because it means we are being put in front of a larger community than before. Which is a good thing: we’re always trying to grow the BoS community, to bring in fresh perspectives and innovative ideas, and we’re confident that O’Reilly fans will make a great contribution. It’s quite possible that it will also mean BoS tickets sell out earlier, which is also an attraction to us!
So, if you are part of the O’Reilly community, coming here for the first time, welcome. We hope you enjoy the blog, conversations and videos from earlier editions of BoS, and we look forward to seeing you in Boston in October.
