The Lanyrd Blog: 2010

Speaking tips, conference news, site updates

Welcome to Lanyrd

We've been live now for a week and a half, so it's about time the project gained a blog! Expect to see posts about new features and updates to the service here, as well as news about conferences and public speaking in general.

Lanyrd, now with sessions!

We built Lanyrd for people who attend, speak at or organise conferences. We also want to provide a permanent record of what happened at those events for everyone to benefit from. Today we're taking another step towards that goal by launching our new session pages.

iCal and Outlook support, and more

It's been a busy few weeks at Lanyrd mobile HQ — we've flown the width of Africa and travelled all the way down the Nile from Cairo and back up again to Luxor. We've also been working hard on Lanyrd — mostly behind the scenes improving our core functionality, but we have a few new features to share as well.

Find conferences to speak at with Lanyrd

We're excited to launch one of our most requested features today: calls for participation. You can now use Lanyrd to find conferences to speak at, or to promote the call for speakers for an event you are organising.

Lanyrd feeds: never miss out on a conference

We created Lanyrd to scratch our own itch: we were fed up of missing out on great conferences because we didn't hear about them in time. Today we're launching a new feature that makes it even easier to stay in the loop.
