Getting to the Business of Software conference for free

53 sec read

Readers of this blog may have guessed 2 things about me:-

1. In general I hate conferences – generally a poor use of time, money.

2. I think Business of Software is a great conference and I bore people constantly about it.

I have attended the last 2 conferences and signed up for the next one as soon as it was announced in the Spring. 

This year I have been given a small walk-on part (probably to give everyone a chance to catch-up on lost sleep), but that aside it is going to be an awesome conference. The speakers list includes the likes of Joel Spolsky, Dan Bricklin, Eric Sink and Seth Godin – just take a look at the full list….

For 3 days you get the chance to hear these people, and to chat socially to them and around 300 other attendees from across the globe. It is an exhausting and mind-blowing experience – you will need that snooze on tuesday afternoon. If you do not come back with something worthwhile, software is probably not the business you should be in…

Now Neil is offering a chance to win a free ticket to attend by posting the best suggestion for how to allocate the free tickets.

In fact it is two chances – presumably if you get a chance to suggest the rules of a game, you will suggest some which make it easier for you to be able to win.

At the very least, it must be worth posting a comment.
