Ok, so what's your favorite developer conference (based on price, speakers, content, location...)? I'm gathering a few ideas to present to the boss.........

What they really need is a developer conference meets beer festival. I don't really know of any though as I've never been to any.

You would probably get better replies if this were in the proper forum. Moved to Corner Cubical :)

Yes it's called the Chirp Conference or the 140 conference. More info here: http://chirp.twitter.com/

The first annual one past recently. I live like 3 blocks from all the above mentioned conferences so it works out great =]

The one conference I have been to was a Microsoft conference for our local .NET user group. The two evangelists came and spoke to us about Azure. The first evangelist discussed the IT side of Azure. A lot of good information for the System Administrators. The second evangelist spoke about the developers side of Azure. Examples included using C# and CSS to develope a web application, then deploying the application via Azure. The speakers were very informative. I would recommend taking a look at the conferences they offer and see if any of them will be in your area. You might find some useful information here:

That's not a developer conference. He's referring to the Consumer Electronics Show. It's an awesome show, one of the biggest, but not developer related.

Adobe MAX was alright, probably more aligned with what you're doing.

Microsoft Tech Ed is supposed to be good, but it's this/next week I think.

I really want to go to the OSCON, except that it's in Oregon. Maybe next summer after I'm 18, I'll go. The topics that interest me most are Java and Mobile.

I got to go to 'Do It With Drupal' in New Orleans last December, and it was a great conference. Not too crowded so there was a lot of great hallway chatter. I hope to get to go again this year.

I really wish I got to go to EECI but the new gig isn't letting me take random time off yet.
