Web Essentials on Thursday | September 26, 2004

So Web Essentials 04 kicks off on Thursday and I have to say that it looks like it’s going to be a great event. If you’re a web standards designer/developer in the area and yet to book your ticket, you really should. Usually you’d be forced to fly to the States to see the likes of Dave Shea, Joe Clark and Doug Bowman speak, so if you’re an Australian or New Zealand developer this is a great opportunity to see some” excellent speakers”:http://we04.com/presenters.cfm in your own back yard.

Unfortunately it’s a bit of a long trek for European developers like myself to attend. However I have it on good authority that a couple of similar events are in the planning for the UK. In the meantime, if you’re going to the event and plan to blog it, add your URL to these comments so the rest of us can follow the event on Thursday and get the tiniest glimpse of what we’ll be missing.

I am really looking forward to it. And would try and keep my blog as updated with information as possible. It would be a chore to carry both the camera and the Powerbook but I guess it’d be worth the effort.

Andy, do you have feeds for entry comments? I’d like to keep track of the comments without refreshing this entry incessantly :)

Looking forward to going across the ditch . Don’t know any other kiwis that are going.

I just came back from WE04. Very tired due to the flight delays etc.

In summary, good sessions and it is great to be among cool developers.

The only problem is the non stop raining throughout the event.

Andy hope you can make it next time.
