Indie Conference: September 2016
This month we've got updates from World Domination Summit, Chaos Computer Congress, Xojo Berlin, and a video of Nathan Barry sharing product launch strategies at Pioneer Nation in Portland.
New Conference Updates
Tickets for World Domination Summit 2017 go on sale October 12th. WDS is a conference for freelancers, bloggers, digital nomads, minimalists and anyone who lives an unconventional life. (Of the conferences I've been to, WDS has ultimately been the most profitable.) Previous attendees get ticket priority, but you can add yourself to the notification list.
MBS Xojo Developer Conference will be in Berlin next year, on 4th & 5th of May 2017. It's being held at Ellington Hotel, a jazz-themed hotel with its own radio station and studio, and the former site of the Dschungel, David Bowie's favorite Berlin nightclub. There's a good chance I'm going to this one, it's my favorite corner of Berlin, so maybe I'll see you there!
Chaos Computer Congress dates have been announced for 27 - 30 December in Berlin, Germany, MicroConf 2017 will be happening 9 - 13 April in Las Vegas, and Twilio Signal is happening 24 - 25 May in San Francisco.
Call For Presentations
Chaos Computer Congress (Berlin,
Germany) call for presentations ends September 30. It's a
non-commercial conference famous for its focus on computer
security / hacking & politics, but it also has tracks devoted to
digital art. The conference itself is 27 - 30 December 2016:
