I've also added my workshop to Upcoming.


and very much looking forward to it, and seeing you down here Aaron!



anyone been to previous ones? is it worth going to? is there lots of partying... i mean.. networking?


Yes, there is lots and lots of "networking", if you have the stamina you can go the entire week without sleep. You will find there will be a large Perth Posse again this year (and that's the ones we know about).

It is worth to go and you will for sure regret if you will not.


@oceanpark - definitely worth going. If I could only get to one web conference a year, this is it. And yes, there's heaps of networking ;)


Just a quick note if you are following this - the discount period ends at the end of August - so if you want $100 off, then sign up by then!




A little over a week away now. Web Directions really is shaping up to be amazing this year - we are really excited



Went to Andy Clarke's workshop today. Was really well presented and lots of food for thought. Can't wait to hear what his little secret is on thursday...
