Twitter Attempt 2

I first heard about Twitter at Web Directions in September 2008. The idea sounded exciting, and many in the profession were hyped by it. However most of the people I knew outside of web development had never heard of Twitter, and many had not really heard of Facebook.

Web Directions 2010

Registration to attend Web Directions 2010 has now opened. I didn’t make it last year after attending in 2008, but I do intended to go this coming year. The are still a number of TBAs in the conference program. October 14 & 15 are the dates for the conference with workshops the days prior. There is a special price of $799 for the conference only when using the code WDS10-THANKS. Of the workshops, none really appeal to me, and I will save the cash for OSDC later in the year.

I have my tickets for Web Directions conference

For the last 2 years I had planned to attend the Web Directions conference in Sydney, but various work and family commitments have meant this has not happened. Well this year there are no excuses, and I am there. I have signed up for the 2 day conference plus ‘Javascript – The Good Parts’ workshop by Douglas Crockford. From a front end perspective, Javascript is my relative technical weakness, but something I am looking to fill in, now that I have moved past my all javascript is evil mindset.
The one problem I do have with the conference program is that I know there will be clashes between presentations I want to see, as it is divided into 3 tracks, and my interest crosses all 3. But what a problem to have. The presentations I am most looking forward to are : ‘Elegant Web Typography’, ‘Javascript libraries – Putting the cross in cross-browser compatible’ and ‘Web APIs, Oauth and OpenID: A developer’s guide’.

See you there.
