Lanyrd is a free web service. It links up to your Twitter account and pulls information about you and your friends. The information is only about what meetings and conferences your friends will be attending in the upcoming days. All nearby events are displayed to you. Conferences can browsed by places and topics too.
When you reach a conference you are interested in, you can indicate your attendance using the “attendance” button or track it using the “Track” button. You can add your own conference as well; if you feel like there is an importance conference going to occur nearby you can write about it and share it through Lanyrd.
The event you share need not be a conference but should be geared towards knowledge sharing events with sessions and participants of some sort, because those are the events the site wants to share.
