Due to capacity restrictions, walk-ins are not available for this event. If the event is sold out, please email to be added to the waiting list for cancellations.

We are entering a period of profound change in the technology industry. What will the software industry and Internet look like in three, five, 10 years? And how will customer demands and business trends drive changes in software products, how they're developed, and the industry that provides them? Join fellow thought-leaders for a day of participant-generated dialogue about the future of software and the Internet. If innovation is the wildcard that will bring us out of the economic downturn, then this unConference will not only help your business, but also be a catalyst for economic recovery.


Who should attend? CEOs, CTOs, CIOs, and other senior industry leaders interested in exploring tomorrow’s drivers including cloud computing, next generation software; and internet technologies necessary to support the onslaught of new cutting edge applications.

NOTE: This event is a "no sales zone" focused on allowing participants to share knowledge and build relationships with their peers.
