I just registered for the Business of Software 2007 conference this fall (Oct 29 and 30) in San Jose. The organizers have put together an impressive list of speakers, and the schedule is mostly one-track: everyone in the same session. I prefer conference like that, to those with many “tracks”.
This is the first year for this conference, so I have no idea how popular it might or might not be. At “worst” case, it’s a small crowd, which usually results in great conversations.
Update: Brian Button pointed me to this interview with Tim Lister, which includes hints about the salacious topics he’ll talk about at the conference (Tim, co-author of Peopleware, is a headline speaker at the BOS conference).
