- Those of you at the Expo will be able to join in an open discussion session immediately following my talk on April 1st.
- Everyone else can register to come to both sessions for free, including the Lean Startup talk in the main conference.
You heard me right. You - yes, you - can enjoy a full 90 minutes of Lean Startup discussion plus all of the other cool sessions offered by the unconference, entirely for free. Plus your Web2Open pass will "give you access to Web2Open, Hybrid Sessions, Keynotes, Sponsored Sessions, the Expo Hall, and BoFs." To sign up, simply register for for the conference and use the code websf09opn during registration. If you're planning to register for the full conference (which includes Web2Open for free) and would like a discount, you can use the discount code websf09fsd. Check out a full schedule of the Web2Open unconference here.
Last, I know some people have written in with feedback (and in surveys) that they'd like to be able to come to events like this but cannot afford to make the trip. Especially in times like these, it's nice to be able to help out. If you or your company is interested in sponsoring someone with a scholarship to travel to the expo and contribute to the conversation, please leave a comment or let me know. Similarly, if you'd like to be able to come but cannot for financial reasons, please drop me a line. I'll do my best to match deserving people up with appropriate sponsors, and I'll be glad to recognize those that give on the blog and at the conference itself.
Thanks, and looking forward to a healthy dialogue. Bring your questions (or post them as comments). See you April Fool's Day (no pranks, please).
