Independent US Software Conferences

@Alex Miller by Alex Miller

This is a list of independent software conferences run primarily by developers for developers (and not by media companies or software companies). Independent software conferences tend to be lower cost and have more interesting content than their stodgier counterparts.

This guide focuses on independent US conferences just to narrow the focus a bit.
