It's that time of the year again: Conference season. I just returned from SWRUS-Kiev and missed this year's ISDEF. But not to worry, the greatest event of all is still coming up on November 5-6 in Brussels. My favorite event is called ESWC, short for European Shareware Conference. It was there that I was first introduced into the inner circles of the shareware community several years ago, when the conference was being held in Cologne. From the meetings grew friendships for life, but also great business opportunities.
This year's event will be extra special. The sessions schedule looks impressive. The location, Sofitel Astoria in the heart of Brussels, is great. And this year, for the first time, a classical concert is included, with music from Dvorak and bruch. If you don't like classical music, don't worry: The traditional height of ESWC consists of the parties in the evening. This year, there is also an excursion in Brussels, organized by Digital River.
If you are an independent developer, or are in any way involved in software developing and marketing by small companies, this event is not to be missed.
