This application has created navigating the conference very easy. My schedule is very clear and accessible, the annotation feature is extremely useful during lectures, and overall I think this application serves only to enhance the experience here in Phoenix!
Almost excellent Amazing app. Very helpful for those that are there and also those that are not. I would have given it 5 stars if it at least had a link to the online streaming of the meeting for those that have the need to watch it from their device. That would have saved me from hunting the web for it. Amazing application and content though. Almost perfect!
Infuriating to login How a lot of codes do we need for one organization. Please just create the login the same as to your website. Why should we need a registration id and an access id! Not to mention when you ask for the info to be sent to you it just sends the access id.
This application would be useful if I could build a schedule of individual talks and posters. As it is, users can only add entire sessions to their "favorites". But most meeting attendees don't sit through a whole session from begin to finish. Instead, most attendees pick and choose individual talks to view. Currently, the application allows you to see the individual talks in each session, but not add them to a schedule, which makes the application less useful.
The application keeps locking up. It works fine for a few days and then I cannot swipe or begin sections. I've reinstalled three times. The My Schedule section hold going empty for no reason. After reinstalling the fourth time there is an modernize that freezes app.
Issue Downloaded and customized latest week. Now informed that need to modernize but cannot update. Have uninstalled and reinstalled but still getting notice about needing to update. So sadly the application isn't working at the moment. However, it was briefly amazing when it did work latest week

It's... not great. No abstract or author info beyond names, cannot export saved happenings into any other program. You can email your saved events, but that email only contains the name of the talk and the time (no location, abstract, or session information). The application is okay for very primary information, but it is beautiful poor when it comes to helping you effectively plan your trip.
Author/investment expert Daniel Pecaut, a Harvard graduate, advises and comments on investments in the Fresh York Times, Cash Magazine, Grant's Interest Rate Observer, Outstanding Investor Digest, and the Omaha-World Herald. Having worked in investing for 30+ years he is CEO of the successful investment firm, Pecaut & Company. Co-author Corey Wrenn is Vice President, Treasurer, and CCO for Pecaut & Company, having earned his M.B.A. from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. His expertise is also derived from his prior work as internal auditor for Berkshire the authors state, ‘Few on Wall Road would dispute the claim that Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger are the greatest investors of our time. Their genius in identifying and evaluating intangibles sets them apart. As a value investor, your ideal situation is to search a company increasing its intrinsic value. Ideally, the company would be one with a declining stock price, thus creating an even better bargain as time unfolds. No one has employed these principles more effectively than Buffett and Munger. Over the latest 50 years, they have consistently sought to own either all or part of amazing businesses, bought at bargain prices. In addition, to succeed using this approach, one must control one’s emotions. Buffett and Munger’s are set apart by their mastery at business valuation and relentless rationality in implementing this approach. The results of this have been awe-inspiring. Under Buffett and Munger’s leadership, Berkshire Hathaway has become one of the greatest business stories of the 20th and 21st centuries.’The contents of this book are not only fascinating facts freely shared but also very sound tip in the form of annual reports from the minds of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger – beginning in 1986 through 2015. Strategies, responses to the shop as it has altered over the years, key concepts, and annual highlights create for fascinating reading not only about the investment arena but also about American and globe politics. Phrases such as ‘Intelligent capital allocation is the essence of sound wealth-building’ and ‘We have long noticed the paradox of craziness that surrounds Warren Buffett: no investor gets more media attention, and yet so small understanding flows out of that attention. We suppose it’s a issue of the short attention span/instant gratification culture bouncing off the wisdom of the ages. In any case, now that the media frenzy over the Berkshire meeting has died down, we check in with our observations on the annual gathering’ dot the is is far more than a solid overview of Berkshire Hathaway lessons from the amazing investors of our time, it is also a book that makes for learning how the investment and the cash markets function in words that are easily comprehended. Highly recommended reading. Grady Harp, December 17
The book encapsulates the wonderful journey of Warren Buffett and Charlier Munger using the Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholder meetings as a source of wisdom about their investment philosophy. The miracle of Berkshire Hathaway has been analysed numerous times - by method of an autobiography of Buffett, analysis of speeches, writings, investments, etc. to garner the secret sauce of the success - but using annual meetings and the proceedings is a rare but special method. One common denominator is the simplicity of investment methods (Ben Graham's 1934 & 1949 books remains their Bible) and consistency. Buffett/Munger methods are timeless - the emphasis on huge margin of safety (gap between value and price - focussing on businesses that have predictable money flows like food, everyday use stuff with high brand recall), use of intrinsic value as a decision point (not everyday vagaries of stock price movements or use of hyper technical and fancy methods involving graphs, buzzwords, consultant driven acronyms), avoidance of "two super-contagious diseases, fear and greed", ignoring macroeconomic factors (rather solely focussing on value of the company), and lastly, able and trustworthy management (paper record of actual performance not interviews). On private habits, their willingness and eagerness to learn, relearn and continuously updating their knowledge by reading, networking, and understanding are remarkable. Not that all decisions have been right - Salomon Brothers surely was, but on acc of impeccable integrity and stature of Buffet, Hathaway could wriggle out without much ado. The book has lot of witty one liners - that convey the essence of what is Berkshire like "The danger of relying on historical statistics or formulas is that you end up betting on a 14-year-old horse with a amazing record but is now ready for the glue factory", or, "Where a huge corporation might go bonkers and develop an entire floor of currency traders—probably hedging the company on currencies for which it had no exposure—Berkshire seeks to hold things simple, “so the chairman can sit and read annual reports all day”, or It is crazy to give up something you know for something you do not”, or "Unlike a crowded theater where you can just leave your seat and run for the exit, in finance, you must search someone to take your seat", and "Buffett opined that envy is the least fun of the seven deadly sins because it leaves you feeling awful." The book is an essential read as it chronicles how brick by brick Berkshire was built, and the timeless concepts and thinking that went behind it.
The University of Berkshire Hathawayby Daniel Pecaut with Corey Wrenn'The University of Berkshire Hathaway' is a gospel recorded by two disciples from 30 years of parables sewn by high priests Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger at their annual shareholders meeting - "the capitalist's ver of Woodstock". Or is it more Delphic?As it is quantitative that Berkshire Hathaway is a candidate for the greatest investment squad in human history, it is certainly worthwhile to examine the record. This is not difficult as Buffett has a willingness to share his methods and act as a teacher via his Annual Reports, his annual sermon on Mount Omaha, and his less programmed 'ex-cathedra' ad-hoc pronouncements. "It's like an MBA in a weekend" is the harmless gross overstatement of a veteran e tip ranges from hardheaded and sensible, always homespun, occasionally symbolic of western free enterprise, to postcard cartoon copy, to the seemingly cliche. "You don't search out who's been swimming naked until the tide goes out." "I'd rather multiply by three than pi." "The advantage of being bisexual is you've doubled your chances for a date on Saturday night."Pecaut "with" Wrenn's book "U of BH" is certainly a practical, honest, indeed recommended method to thus examine the record, frankly as amazing as any. A student of investing would obviously be remiss not to examine Berkshire Hathaway unless they had stumbled otherwise on a Golden Fleece or wise tomb at least comparable to Buffett's recommended "The Smart Investor" of all oracles, the congregation is left to seek their own conclusions. This book is basically 30 chapters summarising each year's Annual Meeting lacking a summary chapter or any attempt to boil-down a kernel of wisdom. In a shop what more can be expected? I remember my father's stockbroker honestly expleting "If I knew the answers to all these questions, I would not be trying to earn my living giving stockbroking advice". Nor indeed would the authors be going to the commendable effort of writing this book summarising this obtuse amount of information.A most commendable lcolm Cameron27 August 2017
This book was published in 2016 and includes notes taken by Daniel Peacaut during the 30 years that he attended Berkshire Hathaway shareholder meetings. He called the book University of Berkshire Hathaway because he felt he learned more at the shareholder meetings than he did at the Harvard business school. Warren Buffett spent hours during the shareholder meetings answering questions which was very educational for the author and other shareholders. The book is quite lengthy: it starts with an interesting introduction which covers the background and history of both the author and Mr. Buffett. The rest of the book are questions answered during the meetings between 1986 and 2015. Looking back in time makes it easier to appreciate and evaluate the decisions created along the way. I found it very i Julia review
I expected that I would not search this book interesting or helpful. I was wrong. I have read the Berkshire annual reports and read notes from the meetings, but this was a amazing refresher of that history, nicely combined. Apparently I do not have a photographic memory because I found several stuff I'm sure I was aware of, but had forgotten along the way. If you'd like to review the annual reports and the annual meetings in just a couple of hours, this is a amazing method to do it.
What a amazing collection of summaries of past meetings spanning 4 recessions and their corresponding bull markets. I kept reading and reading and was sad to see it end. Not only a amazing Cliffnotes ver of the meetings, but a amazing primer in true globe value investing. I think I'll begin re-reading it again today!
I have been a long time follower/investor of Berkshire but attended my first annual meeting just this year, so being able to “experience” 30 years of past meetings was a true treat. This book adds a level of insight that you won’t obtain from the annual letters alone so I expect to use it as a valuable reference going forward. A lot of thanks to the author for putting this together and helping to spread the teachings of Buffett/Munger!
At the Berkshire meetings every year, Buffett and Munger express views that are consistent, but not comprehensive: they don't mention everything every year. So to grasp their complete worldview, you'd have to fly to Omaha every May for a decade.Or, you can just buy this book.
Well worth it! Here you can read nuggets and exchanges from past annual meetings like this one from 2007, before the financial crisis: '"Don't you wish real-time information?" Munger replied that if you can tag to shop to report any level of profits you want, you'll obtain not good human behavior. The person replied, "You just don't understand accounting."'
Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger have a very various method of looking at cash than most of us average Americans. This book does a amazing job of presenting the insights they have shared over the years at the annual shareholder meetings of Berkshire Hathaway.I also found it quite fascinating to read about what makes Berkshire Hathaway various from most companies (hint: their insurance businesses). I came away from the book with fresh insight into how Buffet & Munger have built Berkshire Hathaway into the massively successful conglomerate it is today.
The application clearly says that it's for meeting people straight away. It did created me wait for more than 30 minutes to obtain a meet.But finally I met someone who was beautiful interesting yesterday evening! There are lots to improve! All the best team!
