WOWDC 2009 West (held just before WWDC) was an outstanding success (and I’m not just saying that because I presented 🙂 ) We had a gathering of very knowledgeable and talented WO developers and the conversation over dinners and breaks was as illuminating and educational as the sessions themselves.
Pascal is working feverishly on hammering the videos into shape and working hard on planning WOWODC 2009 East to be held in Montreal late in August.
Our plan for WOWODC 2009 East is for a conference focused on getting novice WO developers up to speed on the tools and frameworks. The sessions we have planned should teach you how to setup and use the tools, understand the frameworks, and build your applications using the best practices around.
However, this year’s WOWODC West also made it clear that there is a lot of value for more advanced developers in simply being able to share their experience with one another. So we are thinking about adding a second track to WOWODC East. A second room for more advanced sessions, labs, and case studies.
For this to happen though, we will need your help. Are you interested in hanging out in Montreal with a bunch of other crazed WO developers? Would you be interested in hosting a lab, presenting a case study, or giving a session on a topic that is near and dear to your heart? Either way, please take a moment to fill out our latest survey (hosted by the kind folks at survs.com).
We also heard from several people that they didn’t know about WOWODC West and/or the other surveys we’ve run this year. If you know of any WebObjects developers who don’t follow the mailing lists or Twitter feeds (wowodc, wocommunity), or know about the WOCommunity organization, please spread the word!
