d.Construct 2006 Launches! | June 21, 2006

Further to my hints a couple of weeks ago, I’m pleased to announce the official launch of d.Construct 2006.

If you’ve not heard of d.Construct, it’s a low-cost grassroots web development conference we run in Brighton. The conference is all about web applications and web 2.0, and this year’s theme is mash-ups and APIs.

We’ve got a fantastic list of international speakers this year, including the likes of Jeffrey Veen, Derek Featherstone, Thomas Vander Wal and Jeff Barr. We also have a great line-up of local talent including Simon Willison, Paul Hammond, Aral Balkan and our very own Jeremy Keith.

Last year’s event was so successful it actually sold out within half an hour. To make sure people don’t miss out this year, we’ve found a larger venue and have increased ticket numbers to 350. We could have gone higher, but we wanted to keep the event small and personal. I’ve been to a lot of big events recently and it becomes impossible to catch up with all the people you want to see.

We haven’t yet announced when ticket sales go live, but despite the increased numbers, I expect they will still go pretty quickly. As such, you may want to subscribe to our events feed. As well as letting you know when tickets will go on sale, the feed will keep you up to date with all the conference news and gossip.

And lastly, if you’d like to show your support for the event, you can add one of our many buttons to your site. If you don’t see one that fits the bill, feel free to grab the source files and make your own.

Gonna see if I can grab a ticket this year before they all sell out. Hopefully be able to make it.

I’d be really interested in attending. I’m a student in Brighton and I’ve always wanted to go to these web conferences (@media and the like). Could you give me a rough idea of likely ticket price?

NB: I don’t know if it’s a problem at your end, but coComment kept throwing errors saying could not receive blog URL.

The event is in several languages? or single in English? Thx.

Unfortunately I’m not going to be able to make it this year as I will be in the South of France, which is a real shame, the line-up looks great.

All the best with it though, and I’ll try and be around for d.Construct 2007!
