RootsTech 2015: Day 2

This year's RootsTech is set to be the biggest yet, with more attendees and online participants than ever before.

One of today's highlights was MyHeritage's participation in the first ever Innovator Showdown.

Over 50 software developers from around the world entered a challenge to create the best new innovations in family history for an opportunity to win $25,000 in awards provided by sponsors (including MyHeritage, a platinum sponsor). The entrants were narrowed down over a course of rounds, and finalists were invited to present their ideas in the keynote hall. Prizes were determined by a panel of renowned judges and live audience voting. MyHeritage's VP of Business Development, Dan Mano, was a judge, alongside our good friend AJ Jacobs and other leaders from the business world.

RootsTech 2014: Day 1

Yesterday, the team set up our booth in the large exhibit hall at RootsTech 2014, in Salt Lake City, Utah.

From an empty space on a concrete floor grew green grass, white cabinets, great graphics and a large circular MyHeritage logo hanging from the ceiling. Computers and cords were retrieved from sturdy travel containers and within a few hours, the screens and keyboards were set up and connected.

RootsTech 2013: We’ve arrived!

One of the best things about genealogy conferences is that we get to catch up with our friends.

This year's RootsTech is expected to attract some 5,000 attendees, some 25% more than last year's event. In addition to conference-goers, speakers and exhibitors, many genealogy bloggers are already here. While many are US-based, this year includes bloggers from Australia, UK, France, Spain and elsewhere.

By 7pm Tuesday, I was at the conference hotel, affectionately known as Geneabloggers Central. I knew that many bloggers had arrived early, and had a nice dinner with Randy Seaver, Heather Wilkinson Rojo, saw Dick Eastman, Lisa Louise Cooke, Thomas MacEntee, Lisa Alzo and others.

This morning (Wednesday) was set-up day for the MyHeritage booth.
