Ajax in July
If you are in or around the New York City area, or can get there on July 6th, this workshop would make one sweet destination. The way they've planned out the event gives quite a bit of time and opportunity for questions and answers. They are limiting the number of attendees to fifty, to ensure that everyone gets a chance to pick the presenter's brain, rather than get lost in the shuffle of mob rule, as is common at larger conferences.
So, what's the catch - Do I attend for free because I am talking it up? I wish. No, actually I will be in London on vacation with my wife in July. While we are there, we plan on sneaking into the July 14th WSG Meetup. I am looking forward to it, because we will hear from Andy Budd who wrote CSS Mastery, and Christian Heilmann, known for From DHTML to DOM scripting.
Unfortunately, the day we leave London - July 19th, is also when Ryan Carson will be presenting How to Build a Web App. He is the guy behind DropSend and Vitamin, so I am bummed that we will miss it by such a narrow margin. Only ten days later there will be another workshop on Ajax Training done by Dylan Schiemann, co-creator of the Dojo Toolkit, now endorsed by IBM.
