The Webmaster Jam Session ’08 is coming right up (Oct 3rd and 4th) in Atlanta. If you haven’t signed up yet and are thinking about going, don’t hesitate. For the money, this is the best web development conference out there. I went last year and got a ton out of it.
This year, I somehow convinced the organizers that I knew a thing or two about web development. So I’ll be giving my own talk on Oct 3rd about the one or two things I know, and maybe a bit more.
“Joking” aside (it’s early, and I haven’t had coffee yet), I’ll be joining the many fine speakers on the panel and giving a talk on the Power of Frameworks. The gist will be that using a framework, be it an off the shelf CMS like Drupal, or a custom one like my own DST, will save you time, your clients money, and make you more valuable as a web developer. I’ll give some real world examples and some practical tips on how to make multi-site development easier and faster.
Part of what makes WJS so good is the fact that seats are limited to 240 people. This means sessions are intimate, casual, and focused. It also means that you’ll stand a great chance of meeting people that can help you.
There are only a few seats left. If you sign up, use the discount code ICANHAZWJS for $50 off your registration.
