One of the things I really like about my job is getting out to conferences and events where I can meet you guys. It’s a great opportunity to get feedback from you, and to learn more about our developers and users. It’s also a great opportunity for you to get to know the IE Team. We’re really not a bunch of faceless developers, testers and PM’s.
In the past, we haven’t announced what conferences and events we were attending, it was always kind of a surprise, but we are going to try and improve on that. Today, we put up a badge for Web Directions North, a really exciting conference that we’ll be attending. Now we won’t be making posts for every conference or event we’re going to be at, but we’ll try our best to make sure we provide you with links to them through the IE Blog.
In fact, the folks at Web Directions North have offered a $100 discount on registration fees to readers of the IE Blog. The conference is February 6th-10th in Vancouver, BC and promises to be a fantastic time. There will be some great speakers, like John Allsopp, Douglas Bowman, Dan Cederholm, Tantek Çelik, Joe Clark, Andy Clarke, Derek Featherstone, Kelly Goto, Aaron Gustafson, Adrian Holovaty, Molly Holzschlag, Jeremy Keith, Steffen Meschkat, Cameron Moll, George Oates, Veerle Pieters, Craig Saila, Dave Shea, Kaitlin Sherwood, Jared Spool. Use the registration code “msp-wdn07” on the registration page to save $100 off the $895CDN registration fee.
