September conferences

20 Aug 2006

Industry events like conferences and workshops are a good bellwether for the economy. Things are getting a little crazy again but that’s good – meeting the people behind all the new ideas, blogs, products, and companies builds a strong sense of community that felt lacking a few years ago.

So I’m attending and speaking more of them these days, including a couple of conferences in the new few weeks. First comes a trip to Brighton for d.construct 2006 – which, as an interesting data point, sold out in 36 hours. I did a podcast interview with them about some of the themes we’ll be discussing there.

Then, it’s right back home for the Future of Web Apps summit, which is being hosted by my pal Ryan Carson. Not only has he put together a great couple of days, but he was also kind enough to hold his event just a few blocks from where I live. Nice!

What else is going on? Have you been to any interesting conferences? Looking forward to any? ​
