The Lean Startup Conference in San Franciso is the world's "oldest" and biggest conference on the topic, hosted by Eric Ries himself.

It attracts many of the world's leading thinkers in lean methodologies, and has lots of really great real life examples of using the approach, and its brothers such as customer development and business model canvas:

We showed it already last year and hope also this year's event will trigger great conversations, learning and inspiration for you, our members, so we're keeping it free (despite there being a fee to stream it). Please just contribute by bringing some snacks / drinks for your fellow attendees to keep us all comfortable as we watch and learn!
