We’re So Lucky
Hey I want to take a moment to say a word about some of the other fine conferences we have upcoming in the next couple of months here in Southeast Michigan.
On March 24, Dave Giard and the fine folks at the Great Lakes Area .Net Users’ group have put together the Detroit Day of Azure. It’s a day-long, multiple-learning-track immersion into Microsoft’s take on cloud computing. Dave has managed to wrangle some nationally recognized talent to come talk to us about how to best use Microsoft’s cloud offerings.
On April 21, we’ll have a chance to work on our soft skills at KalamazooX Honestly I don’t know a lot about this but I understand it’s a great conference. One of the speakers at our conference, Leon Gersing aka RubyBuddha will be speaking at this conference too. If you’ve never seen Leon speak, treat yourself–he’s one of the best speakers you’ll ever see, technical or otherwise.
April 27 through 29, there’s Penguicon over in Dearborn. Honestly I’ve never been but always meant to go–I hear it’s awesome.
After our conference, Dave McKinnon is putting on the second annual MobiDevDay on May 19. Lots of love for our colleagues that build for mobile platforms and Dave has lined up some top-notch speakers. I have been to several of the DevDay events over the last couple of years and Dave does it right.
We are really pretty fortunate around this part of the country in that we’ve got a lot of fine technical conferences upcoming. We’ll do our best to insure that the Great Lakes Functional Programming Conference lives up to that same standard of excellence.
