There's a new web conference happening in Vegas next month and you should join us. John Papa, myself and our friends pulled in the speakers from a combination of invitations and submitted talks. It's called anglebrackets.org and I hope to see you there.
My friends and I miss the old Mix conference and the great fun of web conferences in Vegas generally. So we talked to Richard Campbell and some friends and made our own show. (This is not a Microsoft show, to be clear)
This is the first year of anglebrackets and it's going to be a small conference and we have no money. Because of this, we are co-located with a larger conference* and attendees can move between the two conferences.
You'll be able to enjoy web-focused, back-end non-specific web sessions from amazing web people like:
We've got killer sessions like:
All this and a special keynote from Mozilla Web Guy Christian Heilmann!
This conference will be a great way for you to get up to date on the modern web but also check out some of the DevIntersection talks on ASP.NET, Architecture, Elastic Scale in the cloud and more.
We're lean and mean and independent and we hope you join our first year.
If you register for the show package or complete package you'll also get your choice of a Google Nexus 7 or a Microsoft Surface RT.
There's also some excellent pre- and post-conference workshops you should consider enrolling in:
The Complete Package includes TWO workshops plus the tablet, and the Show Package includes one workshop and the tablet, or just come to the main conference itself.
See you there!
