Your Flipboard Guide to Surviving SXSW
Jenn de la Vega / March 13, 2015
The 2015 edition of South by Southwest conference and festivals kick off this Friday in Austin, TX. SXSW is part professional development, part creative outlet and a lot of party. Attendees this year can look forward to an opening night documentary about Russell Brand, Snoop Dogg‘s keynote address and the illustrious return of Brandy to the concert stage. If you’re looking to get hired, spruce up your LinkedIn page and network at the trade show and job market with hundreds of startups. Whether you’re into emerging technologies, the newest films and bands, we’ve got you covered!
SXSW is a launchpad for company and product debuts, but it can be hard to be heard with over 28,000 attendees and countless events. Follow these Flipboard topics to see who/what rises up during each portion of the conference:
