ISV Conference 2013 - September 27-29 - Reno, NV

I just learned about the ISV Conference being held September 27th, 28th & 29th in Reno, NV. The last time I went to anything that was remotely similar to this was 1995 when I attended the STAR (Shareware Trade Association and Resources)  party which was held at the same time as the SIC (Shareware Industry Conference).

ISV Conference 2013

As a Delphi developer there are hundreds of resources available for learning how to do things with the Delphi language. StackOverflow is probably my favorite resource.

As a Micro ISV, developing software is only one part of the total picture. In fact it's my belief that developing the software is the easiest part of the process. For me the other pieces are much more difficult:

  • Sales
  • Marketing
  • Promotion
  • Distribution
  • Support
I am planning to attend the ISV Conference this year, hope to see some of you there.

Please vote in the ISV Conference poll in the top right margin.

  1. Fair point, Sales and marketing are not easy for programmers but can affect their dev plans heavily so are important even if you try to ignore them ;)

  2. You may know about these but another resource or two you might want to look at is the Microconf
    and the website of Patrick McKenzie who is a micro ISV also.
    Backreading his blog is pretty interesting
