After wading through virtual piles of talk submissions and negotiating with the usual suspects, we’ve put together the content for the next Ajax Experience show (Boston, Oct. 23-25). We were pretty happy with how things turned out at the San Francisco show we put on earlier, and apparently all of you who attended were, too:
Note that 89% of the attendees rated their overall experience 4 out of 5 or higher, and pretty much everyone said they’d recommend the show to others. We tried to keep the focus of the conference on what our conference partner Jay Zimmerman calls “no fluff, just stuff” (i.e., high quality technical content and speaker access) and it looks like that is indeed what folks wanted.
To try and top the high bar set by the last show, we’re increasing the amount of content (now 50 sessions versus the 35 we had at the last show — still 90 minutes long), adding a whole new category of content — User Experience, and of course, trying to improve the swag a bit.
Head over to www.theajaxexperience.com and take take a look at the session listing and agenda. It always helps to have folks register as early as possible, so we’ve tried to put together something motivating for all “early bird” registrants (including an iPod Shuffle — and for our TAE alumni, an iPod Nano). Hope to see you there!
