Page history last edited by WordCamp New Orleans 11 years, 3 months ago

This is my 2009 list of conferences that I plan to attend or would like to attend.  Some of them I go to every year, some of them are ones that I would like to try for the first year.


My goals with conferences are: education, networking, generating business, reconnecting with friends, having fun.


Got an idea for me? Add it to the list in chronological order in the following format:

  • Conference name (w/ link to site) - date - location - what its about, why its important.


I'm confirmed for the bolded conferences.
