Do you have an idea for a talk? Maybe you just made some major strides with jQuery on your current project. Maybe you just found a great way to dynamically create XAML objects. Maybe you built a WPF framework. Whatever your current accomplishments, you’ve got a story to tell. So why not tell it?
There are several great conferences coming up in the next few months, and most of them are still looking for speakers. What’s holding you back? You’re an expert on something, so share that expertise with your community! It will be well received and greatly appreciated.
Here’s a quick list of the events that are coming up, and how to get on the speaker lists that are still open.
Cincinnati Silverlight Firestarter
March 28, 2009, Mason, OH – This event will be held at the Microsoft office in Mason, OH. It will cover the basics of getting started with Silverlight, including XAML, Expression Tools, and server communication basics.
Central Ohio Day of .NET
April 18, 2009, Wilmington, OH – This event is taking place at the Roberts Centre, right off of I-71, between Cincinnati and Columbus.
Kalamazoo X Conference
April 25, 2009, Kalamazoo, MI – The Kalamazoo X Conference intends to uniquely complement standard technical conferences by enabling attendees to boost their process, design, and communication skills. I’m looking forward to this one.
June 26-27, 2009, Knoxville, TN – This is the second year of CodeStock, and they’ve even added an extra day this year. It will be held at Pellissippi State University, and will certainly be another great event.
August 13-15, 2009, Nashville, TN – This huge event is being held at Lipscomb University, and is anticipating as many as 800 attendees. Last year, there was a bus chartered to bring people to Nashville from as far as Grand Rapids, MI. Expect a “who’s who” of software developers to be in attendance at this event.
