BibleTech 2008

Calling all the tekkies out there.

To be held in Seattle, Washington from Jan 25-26, 2008, this two-day conference, sponsored by Logos Bible Software, is designed for publishers, programmers, webmasters, educators, bloggers and anyone interested in using technology to improve Bible study. BibleTech 2008 is an opportunity to meet others who share your interests and hear from industry leaders.

If you'd like to give a talk about a project you're working on, new technology you're excited about, or where you see the industry headed, please respond to the call for participation by August 13.

Any interested parties?

About this Logos Bible Software, I was told that they improved. Have you checked it out and how does it in comparable to BibleWorks, in price and usability.

So far, I find just plain reading the bible in BibleWorks isn't so friendly. I still go back to eSword :) with the book scroll at the left frame. So far I have only been using BW for searches, and very basic ones at that too.

Pearlie,

I am told the same thing - but yet to check it out. Will do so.

Admitedlly, reading bible in BW is not that friendly. It's still the most powerful tool for exegesis!

I have been using Logos scholar's edition and I find it useful and a powerful tool for exegesis. Wonder how it compares with Bibleworks

Kar Yong said...

Alex,

As fas as exegesis is concerned, I have always find BW to be superior. But of late, I noticed that Logos is doing lots of catching up - so I have yet to try the latest edition of Logos and compared them to BW.

Thanks for mentioning Bibletech on your blog! As one of the promoters of this event, I can tell you that only 3 of the 22 sessions will focus on Logos Bible Software. BibleTech will have representatives from all sorts of Christian tech organizations including eBible.com, Olive Tree Software, morphGNT.org, and many more.
