slayeroffice - web experiments gone horribly awry

06.03.2006 - Summer 'O Presentations

Should you find yourself in London or New York at the end of June or beginning of July, the folks at Carson Workshops have set up a couple of interesting sessions you might want to stop in and check out. They aren't free, but considering the caliber of speaker, not too terribly pricey either.

In London on June 29th, Dylan Schiemann of the Dojo Toolkit (which we are using on AIMPages, by the way) will be giving a talk on "Building Web Apps with AJAX".

On July 6th in NYC, my good pal Jeremy Keith will be presenting "Make the Jump to Ajax and DOM Scripting".

One of the important things to note for these workshops is that directly after the workshop proper is "Social: 6:30 till late". One assumes that this implies beer and geek talk, and no better combination in the world than that will you find. This is, of course, why SXSW is so successful.

On the same day as Mr. Schiemann's talk, yours truly will be giving a presentation at an AOL Developers conference (not open to the public, I'm afraid) on the Module-T microformat that AIMPages uses. I'll be making that presentation available here afterwards for those interested. I'm also doing an "Introduction to the DOM" presentation in August, so keep an eye out for that one too. I hope to present it with sound in the same manner as the Unobtrusive Behavior Layer talk. Finally, the audio for our SXSW panel is due out on July 25th, so there will be plenty of oportunities this summer to hear me prattle on about web stuff.

Any other interesting workshops/presentations coming up this summer?

I think workshops are way over-priced (no matter what rockstar is invited). For that money I can get loads of good books.

Sure, they are pricey if you're stuck paying for them with your own money, but the trick is to get your boss to foot the bill.

The boss will give you the book under your nose.

well...stay at home with your books, I guess :P

There is a lot of value to be had just from the social aspect of things like this that you just can't get from book learnin'. Just bouncing ideas off of folks you don't interact with on a daily basis is worth the price of admission.
