Web Unleashed in Boston is 2 Weeks Away!

Posted on Oct 24, 2012

Six years ago, I started an event focused on front-end development (at the time, the focus was Flex). The reason I started it was because I felt the west coast always got the killer events and speakers. Six years later, the technologies have changed (the event grew and topics broadened and changed with the industry) as has the name (from Flex Camp Boston to RIA Unleashed and now Web Unleashed). However, the relative lack of killer east coast events for developers is still a problem. Thankfully, Web Unleashed continues to thrive, still offering awesome speakers on important topics all at a really low cost.

This year, its second year being run by FITC, Web Unleashed is heavily focused on front-end and mobile development using web technologies. It features some awesome speakers including Dave Methvin who is president of the jQuery Foundation and lead developer of the jQuery Core team, Chris Mills of Opera, Chris Bowen of Microsoft and Tim Branyen of Bocoup (I am also speaking). As in the past couple years, there are two days, one featuring hands-on workshops and one with multiple tracks of sessions. You can see the full schedule here.

At only $179 for the conference day and $239 for both days, I still think this event is a really great value. However, I have been given a special discount code I can share here that will make it even more affordable by giving 10% off. Simply register with the code “Boston” and the price drops. So, given there are only 2 weeks left, don’t hesitate to register today. See you there!

This was an really amazing week of content. I guarantee, no matter what your interest, there is an article in this week’s list that you will find useful in your everyday work.
