Our first year. A new web conference - <anglebrackets>
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:
- Lea Verou - Developer Relations at the @W3C
- Christian Heilmann - Mozilla
- Jonathan Snook - SMACSS.com Author
- Elijah Manor - jQuery expert
- Jim Cowart - appendTo()
- Denise Jacobs - Creativity Evangelist
- Phil Haack - GitHub
- Scott Hanselman (me) - Web guy
- and more!
We've got killer sessions like:
- The Vanilla Web Diet
- Hands On Responsive Design with Twitter Bootstrap
- Rich Data HTML Apps with Breeze
- Getting Started with Require.js
- TML5 Canvas and Kinetic.js
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:
- April 8th
- Hacking the Creative Brain: Work Better, Produce More - Denise Jacobs, a TEDx speaker, Creativity Evangelist, and author of CSS Detective
- Nimble and fast web apps for the mobile web - Christian Heilmann, Mozilla
- April 12th
- Building Applications with ASP.NET MVC 4 - K. Scott Allen, Author, Trainer and Consultant
- User Experience Design for Non-Designers: An Interactive, Immersive Workshop - Billy Hollis, UX and App expert
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!
* Yes, we took a little artistic license with the <tag/>, or <tag />, or <tag> if you are super pedantic. It is valid syntax although HTML5's opinion is different than XHTML's. The fact that you even noticed and want to argue is proof you should come to this conference. See what I did there?
