We're not saying Xero is our FAVOURITE or anything, but Xero's 2015 Xerocon conference is being held in Melbourne on 13 and 14 August. Which has to count for something, right?
In addition to sessions presented by Xero staff including managing director Chris Ridd, the program includes presentations and panel sessions featuring Federal Minister for Small Business Bruce Bilson, Institute of Public Accountants CEO Andrew Conway, Dropbox ANZ managing director Charlie Wood, Google Australia head of small business John Ball, Etsy Australia and Asia managing director Helen Souness, National Australia Bank executive general manager of digital and direct banking Adam Bennett, Job Capitol founder and CEO Jo Burston, and media people David Koch and Heidi Armstrong.
Xerocon is being held at the Melbourne Showgrounds.
The conference has three streams, catering for accountants, bookkeepers and those seeking product-related education sessions. The full schedule is available for your perusal.
For bookkeepers and accountants requiring more detailed training sessions, 12 August is Xero Uni Day, which covers the material required to become a Xero certified advisor. Other streams deliver more advanced product knowledge or the business-related aspects of working with Xero.
That Wednesday is also Xero's Dev Day Plus, where developers can learn about the technical and commercial issues relevant to those who want to integrate their products with Xero or who develop add-ons for the cloud accounting system.
BIT will bring you a report from Xerocon as soon as we all get booted back onto the street...
