Speaking tips, conference news, site updates
Some of our conference pages were beginning to strain under the weight of all the wonderful information you've been adding, so we've rolled out a fresh new design and some useful new features.
We've built an extension for Lanyrd that lets you see the conferences your email contacts are attending in the sidebar of your Gmail inbox.
Very exciting news that we have been absolutely bursting to tell you all about for a while now: Lanyrd gets investment and support from Y Combinator!
Now you can stay up to date with events your contacts are interested in even more conveniently — direct to your email inbox!
We are proud to introduce some small but fabulous changes to your Lanyrd calendar page! You can now track and attend events inline and see your own events in a handy tab - and it's a fair bit snappier too!
The holiday season is over; a whole wonderful year stretches before us! Could there be a more perfect time to start thinking about all the exciting conferences that lie ahead? And wouldn't it be even cooler if you could easily share those thoughts with your peers and friends? We think it would be!
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.
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.
We're extremely excited to announce a brand new dimension to Lanyrd today: conference coverage!
