There are so many great conferences coming up this year, I thought I'd highlight some of the best ones.
Waza - 28th February
Heroku's annual developer conference, the line up this year is brilliant including Matz, the creator of Ruby.
#inspect - 25th March
The first official RubyMotion conference in Brussels. If you are getting into Rubymotion, you can't afford to miss this.
Ruby Manor - 6th April
The community conference organized by members of the London Ruby Users Group, I spoke there last year and had a blast.
Write the docs - 8th April
A new conference for people who write and maintain documentation, this is really interesting to me as I've been focusing a lot on documentation recently.
BACON - 12th April
I also attended Bacon last year, unlike most technical conferences, the talks were incredibily varied, including talks about beer, lego and coffee.
Railsberry - 22th April
Yet another amazing lineup, and good to see this traditional rails conf expanding into other topics as well.
Git Merge - 9th May
A conference focused purely on git. It's pretty niche but ran by GitHub so you know it's going to be good.
Webshaped - 23rd May
Finland's only Frontend web design and development conference, I'm going to be speaking there about super charging your frontend development with Node.js.
Fluent - 28th May
The massive 3 day O'Reilly conference in San Francisco with a massive range of speakers and technologies being covered.
NodeConf - 27th June
The official Node.js conference in California with a twist, it's at the beautiful Walker Creek Ranch with series of hands-on workshops mixed with presentations and talks.
HybridConf - 15th August
The most exciting UK conference this year organised by Zach Inglis, it's a good mix of design and development talks from some world class speakers.
dConstruct - 6th September
dConstruct is one of those conferences that I just can't miss, I've been 3 times in a row now and it gets better every year.
Barcelona Ruby Conference - 14th September
I missed going to this last year, and after watching the videos from the conference I've been kicking myself since, definetly won't miss it this year.
ArrrrCamp 7 - 3rd October
The rum-fueled Belgium Ruby conference, on it's 7th year, it's small but perfectly formed.
I've also keep track of all of these on Lanyrd Guide.
