Unveiling ConFoo 2013
Aug 23, 2012 @ 15:27:14

Anna Filina has a quick new post to her site about the upcoming ConFoo conference happening February 25th through March 1st in Montreal, Canada.

If you have never heard of ConFoo, it is one of the most important developer-oriented conferences. The team brings you speakers from around the globe to share their hands-on experience with various web technologies. The best news is: it’s driven by the community and is non for profit!

The call for papers opens on August 27 and is important even if you are not a speaker. You can vote on all the proposals as they come in, telling the team exactly what you wish to learn.

If you're interested in speaking this year, you can sign up for their newsletter and get notifications. If you'd just like to find out more about the event, check out the main conference site. (For a look at last year's event, take a look at its schedule.)
