At the Business of Software conference entrepreneurs in the software industry get together to discuss the business side of running a software company. Attending the conference was truly an amazing experience. It was an intense three days of learning from, and networking with, passionate, motivated, driven, and intelligent individuals. It was very inspiring, and I highly recommend you attend next year, if you can afford it. The speakers included Seth Godin, Dharmesh Shah, Peldi Guilizzoni, Jason Cohen, Eric Ries, and Rob Walling.
