Coming this fall, Alex Miller is putting on the third year of his Strange Loop conference, Strange Loop 2011. It’s not in “The Loop” this time, because The Loop isn’t big enough to hold it!
I heartily recommend Strange Loop for any software developer interested in learning more about a wide variety of technical topics. Unlike many other events, this one stays close to the technology all the way through – you might see a higher ratio of code-to-text on the slides here, than at any other conference.
(Again this year, my firm Oasis Digital is a sponsor, and I’ll probably submit a talk. I hesitate a bit though, because if I give a talk, I have to miss someone else’s talk in that timeslot.)
