Perhaps I just have conference fever after the outstanding Úll last month but two up and coming events really caught my eye on the conference cicuit yesterday. Release Notes will be taking place in October in Indiana; and the closer to present day Layers will be happening in San Francisco at the same time as WWDC.
Just check out both sets of speakers, the quality is marvellous. I sorely wish I could go to both, but alas I due to a combination of factors (mainly money), it's unlikely I'll get to either. But you — yes, you dear reader — should think about it.
