Nerds on a train

Make Web, Not War May 27, 2010 in MontrealI’m going to miss this years’ Make Web, Not War event in Montreal on May 27, 2010. I’ll be attending another event in Ottawa. There is a great list of presenters including:

It’s a great training event for developers in Montreal. Thought I might be biased, I keynoted the 2009 event in Toronto. It is great to see continuted support of interoperability and developer choice. Joey and I joined Microsoft after doing most of our recent web development on other platforms (Rails, PHP, ColdFusion and Java2). I still have a deep interest in understanding the impact of emerging technologies (lately I’ve been looking at noSQL and scaling solutions).

For $50 you get a subsidized train to Montreal starting on Tuesday May 25 at 9:00am and leaving on Friday, May 28 at 11:25am. Nothing like power, wifi, food, a beverage, and NERDS ON A TRAIN. I think Joey will be playing the role of Samuel L. Jackson on this train ride.

  1. Wonder if we'll be seeing these speeches online? As a CodeIgniter developer, I'd like to hear Joël Perras speak on CakePHP. As well, after watching this video on StatusNet, I setup my own identica account. Should be a great group of speakers!

  2. Just a slight correction: I am not the founder of CakePHP. I was simply one of the core/principal developers for some time.

    As a side note, my keynote will not be about CakePHP, but rather about interoperability and it's importance in modern web development.
