Speaking tips, conference news, site updates
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!
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.
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.
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.
