What is Worldware?

Worldware is a conference that provides an opportunity to learn how to get international product releases out on time and on budget. Attendees learn from experts how to build, deploy and maintain worldwide product releases.

Why? Common wisdom teaches that, on average, a diverse financial portfolio weathers periods of economic hardship better than a portfolio that depends on a single asset class. This is true of international product markets as well. Products that can be sold in multiple geographies have greater chances of success than those that are confined to one local market.

There is an abundance of information about how to go about internationalization available from books and conferences such as the Unicode Conference, but little information about why internationalization should be done and what it consists of.

Worldware illuminates the “why” and “what” of internationalization in a relaxed and informative two-day conference setting. Subject matter experts from leading companies offer indispensible insights into key topics for any company delivering software to the world audience. The formal conference is preceded by a workshop day for more in-depth discussions and discovery.
