South by Southwest 2015 may be eight months away, but the time to vote on content has arrived! This year, we’re going BIG for both the Music and Interactive conferences. Our submissions range from music event discovery and paid advertising to choosing a technology stack, scala best practices, and building concurrent systems. Whether you’re a venue owner, talent buyer, marketer, engineer or technology enthusiast, we’ve got something for you!
Last year we moderated a panel on analyzing and acting on fan data to know and grow fan communities. This year’s panel will focus on how technology companies are using data to drive powerful recommendations and search algorithms, enabling the best live event discovery experiences for fans. Hear from Facebook, Google, DoStuff Media, and Ticketfly about the changing world of event marketing, what’s coming, and what it means for you.
Are you looking to build awareness? Attract new customers? Sell more tickets to a show? No matter what your goals are or how big or small your event marketing budget may be, learn how to optimize your spend to achieve the results you desire.
Building off of our 2013 interactive workshop on how to build scalable software, our 2015 presentation will outline pitfalls to avoid in building a highly concurrent system. Leverage our best practices to learn how to build your system for scale.
After our 2013 interactive workshop, an enthusiastic group of engineers in attendance took us out for beers to geek-out on scala. We had so much fun, we thought we’d host a formal gathering this year for scala enthusiasts (with beers, of course). If you want network and share knowledge about functional programming and reactive design, this meetup is for you!
New tech stacks are appearing and disappearing, faster than ever. How do you know you’re making the right long-term choice? Hear from Ticketfly’s VP of Technology on past technology decisions throughout his career, a review of what’s out there, and Ticketfly’s approach to technology decisions to scale for the long-term.
