21st-22nd May 2018 // The Barbican, London

BoS Europe

We’re a single-track conference to help you build great software and turn it into profitable business. In the words of Joel Spolsky, “every speaker would be a headline keynote at most other conferences”.

Talks are in depth, tightly curated for content and delivery, there are zero sales pitches, panels or sponsor pitches. Every session offers ideas and specific things you can use to build better software or improve your business.

This year, we’re focused on how to make product, culture, innovation, strategy, marketing and sales drive sustainable, profitable, growth. You can find the schedule below.
