ESWC 2011 registration is now open

Registration is now open for the European Software Conference 2011. It is on 19th-20th November in London, with informal drinks the evening before. This is the top European event for microISVs and other small software businesses. It is always good to meet up with other microISVs and London is a great city to visit, even if only to remind yourself how glad you are you don’t live in a big city. The early bird rates are just 55 Euros (with no meals) and 155 Euros (including 2 networking dinners). The schedule is still being fleshed out. I will be doing a talk, provisionally titled “Promoting your software”. Watch this space for more details. There are still some spare speaking slots. It would be nice to see some new faces doing talks, so why not volunteer?

Sadly there might not be a Software Industry Conference this year. But if you are based in the USA you might want to consider MicroConf 2011 in Vegas 6th-7th June. There is also Business of Software 2011 in Boston 24th-26th October, but I think this is aimed more at larger software companies (or those that want to be larger software companies).

I will be speaking at SIC 2009

sic2009I will be giving a talk entitled “10 mistakes microISVs make” at the Software Industry Conference 2009 (July 16-18, Boston). The talk will be based around 10 of the most common mistakes I see as a member of the microISV community, as a buyer of software and as a consultant to microISVs (some of which I have made myself).

SIC is the largest conference aimed at microISVs, shareware authors and other small software vendors. This will be the first time I have been to SIC and I am really looking forward to it.

Registration for SIC is only $229 if you register before 1st April.
