In short order, I’m going to be giving a bunch of talks at various places in the universe, and am both excited and a little bit overwhelmed by the upcoming schedule. A lot of people don’t realize that I’m not an evangelist – it’s not my job to go to conferences or prepare talks. I’m usually plenty busy keeping one of the world’s most-visited web sites up and running, accessible, and fast. I do feel that it’s important to share knowledge about how to develop at scale, and so I frequently find myself giving talks to help spread the word.
The next couple of months will be fairly hectic, but I wanted to share the schedule in the hopes that I’ll meet many of you soon.
In November, I’ll have finally made my way back to California and will be speaking at YUIConf. For the
Hope to see you there!
I usually only go where I’m invited because I’m usually too busy to seek out speaking opportunities, so if you would like to see me somewhere in particular, be sure to let me or the organizers know. I’m going to be in the Boston area the week of September 26 and the week of October 11. If there are any web development events or you’d just like to meet up and talk about the related topics, do get in touch – I’d be happy to oblige (schedule permitting, of course).
After YUIConf, I plan on taking some time off from speaking through the end of the year, so please be sure to say hi if you see me out and about. And I hope to see a lot of you at these various events soon.
*Update (10-Sep-2010): *Thanks to Jenny and Craig for pointing out this is the second year that YUIConf is open to the public. Last year I was recovering from surgery so wasn’t too involved.
