Convince Your Boss

Need help justifying your attendance? The best way to gain approval for the conference is to align your company's goals with the conference!

SAVE BIG. Approach your manager early to gain approval and receive great discounts! Save up to $400 dollars per person with Super Early Bird pricing, alumni savings, group discounts, and more!

WORK IT! Let your manager know that you plan to take advantage of the myriad of networking opportunities. There’s no sense in reinventing the wheel, so make sure you learn from others in both formal and informal ways: an evening reception, speaker book signings, Meet the Speakers at lunch, Presenter One-on-One, bonus sessions, and more!

FOCUS ON THE BENEFITS. Strrrretch that dollar! Tell your manager you’re going to learn how to do more with less—including ways to control costs and increase revenue while still bringing a quality product to market.

DIVIDE AND CONQUER. Bring a team member to attend sessions from the Agile Development Conference, Better Software Conference or DevOps Conference and double your learning power. Remember, groups of 3+ save up to 20% off registration fees.

SOLUTIONS. Share with your manager that you plan to attend the Expo at the Agile Development, Better Software & DevOps Conference East! Meet with tool and service vendors, watch demos, and find exactly the right solutions.

SHARE. Offer to take your new knowledge back to the office and hold a training session for your co-workers. Plan to keep a list at the conference of ideas you want to implement when returning to the office. Type them up and email them to your manager and co-workers.
