AltConf 2015 schedule is complete
25 MAY 2015
The speaking schedule for AltConf 2015 is complete and has been released at altconf.com/schedule. Many speakers were added, including all the accepted talks from the Call for Papers, with a record-breaking total of nearly 90 speakers. Some speaker additions include: Sally Shepard, Eli Hodapp, Peter Cohen, Josh Michaels, Aleen Simms, Carla White, Victor Agreda, Jr., Jean MacDonald, Orta Therox, Wil Shipley, Daniel Steinberg, Aaron Hillegass, and many, many, more.
Along with the new speakers, three new sponsors have joined in support of the volunteer-driven event: Aclipsa, Willow Tree, and Microsoft. They’re joining the likes of FastSpring, codepath, Google, Smile, saucelabs, and Raizlabs. All sponsor slots have been filled, but if you’d like some exhibitor space, please get in touch at: firstname.lastname@example.org
A new partnership with Realm will allow AltConf to host session videos on their site. They’ve also offered a few videographers to capture every talk. In just a couple of weeks, you’ll be able to tune into live.altconf.com and follow along via live stream or watch the videos later in the comfort of your home.
AltConf has had amazing support from the community. With over a thousand people registered for free tickets, and all of the Hero Supporter tickets sold out, the Apple community’s response has been huge. The Hero Supporter tickets offer guaranteed seating to all speaking sessions and includes a special swag bag. These ticket sales have helped to secure AltConf 2016, which is already in the planning pipeline.
Everything is coming together nicely for an excellent AltConf 2015. If you’d like to pitch in a hand to help out during the conference, feel free to fill out the volunteer form.
There are only 14 days left until AltConf 2015 starts, and a few more large items are yet to be announced. Stay tuned.
