Indieconf - A Conference for Independent (Technology) Contractors
September 10, 2010 @ 08:20:44

Michael Kimsal has submitted some info about a conference that he and others in the Raleigh, NC area will be putting on targeting independent web professionals - a single day event with twelve different sessions aimed directly at folks out on their own - indieconf.

indieconf is a conference for independent web professionals. Whether you're a full time freelancer or part time contractor, designer or developer, you'll find something for you at indieconf. Web and tech conferences have traditionally focused on the technical side of things. While the sessions are often useful, they don't often address the realities of living as an independent.

The event will be happening November 13th with a $99 USD Early Bird rate (before September 25th). Snacks and drinks will be provided during the event, but there will also be a Friday night dinner with all attendees and speakers. The event will be on the University of North Carolina campus in the McKimmon Center. For more information about the conference, check out it's site!
