DevLink – Awesome Conference in Chattanooga

August 29th, 2014 Comments off

John Kellar started DevLink over in Nashville in 2006.  It’s a great conference.  I’ve seen presenters at DevLink in August only to catch the exact same presentations from them a few months later down at VSLive Orlando in December.  The difference in the price tag is $100-250 for DevLink and $1,500-3,000 (factoring in airfare, room and board) for VS Live.  That kind of difference is HAAARD to justify.

Professional Development - Convince Me

 

This year I’ve enjoyed a lot of AngularJS content and some architectural sessions, notably Mike Wood‘s Dependable Cloud Architecture and Rachel Appel‘s Web Runtime Architecture and Performance Deep Dive.
