Cool, looks like I'll be speaking at CodeMash next year in Ohio.
"CodeMash is a unique event that will educate developers on current practices, methodologies and technology trends in variety of platforms and development languages such as Java, .NET, Ruby and PHP. Held January 10-11, 2008, at the lush Kalahari Resort in Sandusky, Ohio, attendees will be able to attend a world-class technical conference amid Ohio's largest indoor waterpark."
There's a great lineup of folks from many disciplines already, including my new co-worker Jesse "Silverlight" Liberty, not to mention Bill Wagner, Neal Ford, Matt Williams, and Dick Wall of Google and the Java Posse.
Since it's an event that mashes many things together, I've got an idea for a Managed Code + PHP + IIS7 demo that hopefully will make for an interesting keynote.
If you're in or around Ohio you might consider registering for CodeMash 188.8.131.52. It's REALLY inexpensive and a fine time will be had by all.
