Next week, I’ll be at Association of Software Professionals, of which I am currently the President.
It’s being held in Reno, Nevada from September 27th – 29th, at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa.
It’s a great networking opportunity since you get to meet other independent software developers and business owners, discuss best practices, and learn some actionable tips and tricks as well as solid principles about running your own software business.
Also, for three days, there will be presentations and panels on a variety of relevant topics, such as a talk on expanding your business to multiple devices and platforms by Embarcadero’s David Intersimone. Evan Digby of SoftwareShield has a talk titled “Bridging the Gap Between Download and Sale” that I’m very interested in as well. There will be talks on SEO, how to properly setup your business to protect yourself, social media, Cloud and Software as a Service (SaaS), and more, all geared towards helping you improve your business. More details about the sessions are at http://www.isvcon.org/sessions.php.
Plus, I really liked the food and entertainment last year, so I’m looking forward to more. B-)
If you missed it last year, the video archives are up at http://www.isvcon.org/videos.php.
It’s not too late to register for the conference, which you can do at http://www.isvcon.org/register.php. If you plan on being in Reno, you should definitely stop by. I’d love to meet you.
