The Number One Reason to Attend the Users' Conference

Over the past few weeks I've been counting down the Top Ten Reasons you should plan to attend the Accordance Users' Conference in the Dallas area September 24-25. I'm now ready to reveal the number one reason to attend the Users' Conference. But first, let me list once again reasons 2 through 10.

10. Hang Out with Other Accordance Users: See here for more.

9. Get to Know Accordance Developers: See here for more.

8. Go Light or Heavy: See here for more.

7. Get Personal and Practical Help: See here for more.

6. Try Before You Buy and Buy at a Discount: See here for more.

5. Get Up Close and Personal with the New iOS App: See here for more.

4. Discuss the Future of Mobile with OakTree and Olive Tree: See here for more.

3. Get Inspired by World-Class Scholars: See here for more.

2. Get An Insider's Perspective: See here for more.

And now, the number one reason to attend the users' conference. . .

1. Become an Accordance 9 Power User: No, that's not a misprint. The 9 is there on purpose. The next major version of Accordance is nearing completion and should be released very soon. It will feature numerous interface enhancements and powerful new search capabilities, and the users' conference will be the place to learn about everything that's new.

That's especially the case if you want to learn how to use Accordance 9's new Syntax search capabilities. Dr. Robert Holmstedt, Associate Professor of Ancient Hebrew and Northwest Semitic Languages at the University of Toronto, has taken a lead role in the development of our syntactical databases, and will be teaching a workshop on how to use them. I'm so looking forward to attending that workshop that I made sure I wouldn't be leading a session at the same time.

Even if you don't plan on doing syntactical searches in Greek and Hebrew, there are a bunch of new goodies in Accordance 9 you'll want to learn how to use, and the Users' Conference will be your first and best opportunity to become an Accordance 9 power user.

So there you have it: my top ten reasons you won't want to miss the Users' Conference. It's only a couple weeks away, so if you haven't registered yet, be sure to do so now. I hope to see you there.

OOOOOO! Accordance 9! Awesome! You guys are really being tantalizing these days what with iOS app being developed and a new major version of Accordance too! Awesome, awesome, awesome.

So glad I have a book budget and it still has some room on it. Any further info you're willing to give out about either the iOS app or Accordance 9--I'm all ears!

Keep up the great work, folks!
