I know that lead time for conferences like the official jQuery events can be a little short. Unfortunately the approval process at my shop is incredibly long for professional development requests. While I'm not looking for any specific details (unless you want to share *grin*) I am wondering if there are any firm plans in the works for a Boston or San Francisco conference this year? Heck, even something up here in the great white north of Canada would work for me.
I am somewhat new to jQuery (I dabbled in it a few years back, but am using it full swing in a app at work now) and wouldl ove to be able to go to a conference, I live in Canada so Toronto or Ottawa would be AWESOME or something close to us anyway (NY or Boston I suppose)
We've got eight world-wide conferences in planning over the next 12 months. The remaining events for 2012 are
* October 15-16 near Washington, D.C.
* November (exact date TBD) in Seoul, South Korea
* December 7-8 in São Paulo, Brazil
In 2013 we're currently planning
* Feb 2013 (exact date TBD) in Toronto, Canada * Feb 6-9 2013 in Sydney, Australia * Feb 22-23 2013 in Vienna, Austria [Europe] * April 19 2013 near London [UK] * May 21-24 2013 in Portland, OR
The only event that currently has a website is jQuery Conference Toronto ( http://jqueryto.com/ ). Keep an eye on blog.jquery.com and events.jquery.org as we'll be announcing details for the other events in coming weeks.
