We’ve been pretty busy with conferences lately, and that looks to continue into the Summer.
Rich spoke at the JRuby Meetup a few weeks ago, and Anthony went to the OpenSocial Hackathon at Google hosted by hi5 a few week ago, too. If they ever get a few free minutes, maybe they’ll share some thoughts on those events.
This reminded me that there are a handful of conferences in the next few months that the ‘Lab will be attending. Let us know if you’ll be there, and we can talk shop over coffee or lunch or whatever.

Paul and I will only be in Denver a couple days, but I plan to spend most of my time chatting with people, e.g. continuing my discussion with Ameed Taylor about Google and the enterprise, and scouting out New Web stuff, like the OUAG social network that Eddie outed last week.
Web 2.0 Expo: April 22-25
The whole ‘Lab will be in attendance at this quintessential New Web conference. For the first time, Oracle is a platinum sponser and will have a large booth with several demo pods and an unconference area. We haven’t yet decided if we’ll have an AppsLab pod within the Oracle booth, but we’ll definitely be hanging around the conference, and someone will definitely be showing Oracle Mix in the Oracle booth.
I’ll most likely be using Twitter to tweet my whereabouts and conference thoughts, so that will be a good way to track me, if you’re interested. I’ll post more details in the coming weeks. Carl from the APEX will be there, as will Justin I’m sure. Anyone else? Sound off in comments.
I’m planning on being at WebVisions in Portland, May 22-23, and Rich will be coming to Portland for RailsConf in late May as well. For those who don’t know, the Rose City has a very vibrant tech scene, especially around Rails and web development.
If you’re wondering what conferences we’ll be attending, we use the “appslab” group on Upcoming to track interesting conferences and events all over world. If we’re attending, you’ll see us listed in the roster of people attending. The group is public, so feel free to join and add events to the group. We have an Events widget below the fold here that shows the next nine or so events on the group calendar.
Do you have suggestions for events the ‘Lab should attend? Do you want to meet up with us at one of the events we’re attending? Other thoughts on conferences? Go nuts in comments.
