Conferences and Educational Opportunities

Posted 26 February 2013 - 03:29 PM

I am looking to start a list of conferences and educational opportunities you know of nationally, or locally, that you would like to share with everyone. If you have had a positive experience, are heading to one and want to see if other DICs may be there, etc post it here, or just scope out the possibilities post 'em here.

For sanity's sake try and keep the suggestions as:
<event name>
<location> <date>
<website>

As of right now I am registered for the Nebraska Codecamp and will be heading down on the Saturday. North America TechEd is out of the question (wedding that weekend), and one of these days I'll hit SIGGRAPH.... but not this year.

Just got back from the Nebraska Code Camp.. over all not bad (for free), but the keynote speaker Ted Neward was hysterical in the opening discussion on rethinking enterprise learning while his break out session on esoteric languages was a riot.

The other most helpful/informative was a talk on "Using MonoGame to Develop Games for All (or Nearly All) Platforms" by Kevin Grossnicklaus... focusing on the spiritual (and actual) successor for XNA - Monogame.

I did corner the Microsoft rep there.. he was infuriatingly tight lipped about what is coming up for 'post XNA', but did mention the information will drop out in a few months when a more solid news on the new xbox happens. Ugh.. that or he didn't know and wanted to sound cool. Either way not a bad Saturday of geek elbow rubbing.
