Spring has almost sprung and along with the warmer weather comes conference season. At Six Apart, we’re looking forward to coming out of hibernation and meeting with our customers, partners and friends face-to-face. Here’s a sample of where you can catch us live in the upcoming weeks.
This week Anil Dash and Jay Allen represented Six Apart at SXSW, where, we are happy to announce Movable Type received a 2005 Bloggie award for "Best Web Application for Weblogs." Congratulations to all the winners and to the show organizers for putting on another great conference.
Ben Trott and Brad Fitzpatrick are off to San Diego to mingle with the engineering crowd. Make sure to catch Ben's session on "Making Web Services Personal." Extensive sample open source code will be distributed at the session and is sure to satisfy our geek friends.
This year's theme is "Innovation and Vision in Nonprofit Technology: The Next 10 Years". We are honored that nTen invited Mena to be one of two keynote speakers addressing the crowd (the other is Esther Dyson). If you are a non-profit or work with non-profits we highly recommend attending this outstanding conference.
For the non-geeks among us, WOMMA is hosting a first ever conference on word of mouth marketing for Senior Marketing execs. Deborah Schultz will be speaking on the unique aspects of using blogs to market products and develop customer loyalty. All friends of Six Apart get a $75 discount. Just use the discount code "welovesixapart" when you register.
So if you plan on attending any of these conferences, we hope you will stop by and say hi. We look forward to seeing you.
