A Great Year of Conferences!
Written Nov 2, 2009 at 18:56 (0)
As 2009 starts to draw to a close (I can't believe it's November already) I wanted to take a look back at some of the great conferences and feedback Joind.in has seen. We're just a bit over a year old ourselves and have loved the community support we've gotten from both the users and organizers of the site!
Here's a few stats from conferences this year:
- The php|tek 2009 conference in Chicago, IL brought in 105 comments on a wide range of talks
- The CodeWorks conference came in at 175 comments combined in all of the tour's seven cities.
- This year's ZendCon conference was a great success and ended up with 181 comments from attendees
- Finally, the PHP North West 2009 conference topped the list with 212 comments from those that attended!
Thanks to the effort of Keith Casey, the unconference/pre-voting method of posting sessions was a great success for both the php|tek and ZendCon conferences this year! More features for this kind of thing are coming, so conference organizers, keep your eyes open!
Finally, I wanted to let you all know about the latest status of this site's code. During the initial development of the project, I was hacking away on the code myself but it's time for that to change. I've posted the source for the Joind.in website over on github to encourage Open Source development. If you'd like to check it out, head over and clone (or just watch) the project and get an idea of the things to come!
