So only two months until the return of CICONF to America! Last year was CICONF2011 NY which was a great experience. There we announced the availability of CodeIgniter on GitHub, released CodeIgniter 2.1-dev and saw over 50 pull requests get made to CodeIgniter by developers trying to win my iPad. Then we had CICONF2012 in London, and now it's off to San Francisco for more CodeIgniter nerdery.
He also mentions speakers that will be presenting at the event including Aaron Kuzemchak, Calvin Froedge and Kenny Katzguru. He'll also be speaking, giving a session (no update on what it'll be about though).
If you're interested in attending the event, you can find out more information on the conference site (and order your tickets!)
