Hello {{ subscriber.First_Name }},

Thank you for being a part of the Business of Software community. It means a lot to us that you take the time to read this and I hope you will continue to find interesting ideas. This week, we share the five most frequently recommended BoSTalks this year, and I'm also sharing my personal favourite talk of 2017...

The Top 5 Most Impactful BoSTalks of 2017


An inevitability of this time of year is the never-ending 'Top 10' lists that float around the internet. You'll be glad to know we've succumbed to this trend. We have however limited ourselves to just 5 talks. Why? These talks are GOLD. And you should watch all 5 of them.

What's in store for Business of Software in 2018?

Our 2018 Conference dates are: Europe, May 21-22 and USA, Oct 1-3.

The 'before the speakers are announced early bird' 
tickets are on sale until we announce the first speakers in January. These are the lowest priced tickets we make available so if you're planning on joining us in 2018, save your places before the holiday break.

Finally. My Favourite #BoSTalk of 2017

I'm often asked what my personal favourite BoS talks are. I don't generally answer as favourite is such a subjective notion. Favourite means many things for different people - the most impactful, most relevant, most value for your career or business, most inspiring, most mind changing, best delivered, nicest slides...

This is my favourite talk of 2017 for the sheer joy of it. It might not teach you anything about how to make better software, (though it is possible it might). It made me happy that there are people like Tim who are prepared to pursue a different path from the one that everyone else does. Just because everyone else is doing it, doesn't make it right, or right for you. Sort of captures the essence of Business of Software.


Tim lives in his MLP (Minimum Living Product) van. He has done for 2 years. Is Van 2.0 feasible?

Have a wonderful end of the year. I'll see you in 2018.
