A Refreshing Change from Big Web Conferences | November 12, 2006
Tomorrow morning I’ll be jetting off to Orlando with Jeremy Keith and Paul Boag to speak at Refresh 06. In contrast to a lot of conferences, Refresh 06 will be a small, intimate affair. More like a big workshop than a conference. I’m really looking forward to this as it means we’ll be able to spend a lot more time talking with the audience. So if you’re planning to come along, start thinking about your questions now.
Talking about workshops, both myself and Jeremy will be running workshops on the day before the conference. I’ll be doing a cut-down version of my CSS Mastery workshop while Jeremy will be presenting the highlights of his Ajax workshop.
I’ve never been to Florida before, let alone Orlando, so I’m looking forward to experiencing a new city. One of the things I love about public speaking is the ability to visit places you normally wouldn’t get chance to see. So while we’re there, I’m hoping to check out Universal Studios Island of Adventure. I’m not a huge theme park fan, although I did enjoy Universal Studios in LA when I was there a few years back. I’ll probably have a crack at one of the bigger rides, although I’m not sure I have the nerve to try Duelling Dragons or The Incredible Hulk after checking out some of the videos on YouTube.
If you’re in and around the Orlando area, I’d love to get some recommendations for good bars, cafes and restaurants. Better yet, why not come along to the event and let us know in person. I think there are still some tickets left and it should be a lot of fun.
