2019 Brand New Conference: Summary, Sights, and Videos

Announced Nov. 4, 2019 by Armin

Tags /

Here is this year’s breakdown of the 16 sessions of the 2019 Brand New Conference that took place this past October 17 – 18 in Las Vegas, NV, and which was awesome.

This is a very long post with a photo of each speaker, very brief summaries, and a preview of their video/session, so give it a good time to load. A few other things worth bullet-pointing:
