Last year I got to attend an amazing conference: The Kalamazoo X Conference. Mike Eaton put on an amazing conference with a terrific lineup and a fantastic format: 20 minute talks from great folks like Mike Wood, Brian Prince, Leon Gersing, and others. (I’m leaving off all the other great speakers because of time and space. Don’t take it personally if you were one.)
KalX’s content isn’t about in-depth technical geekery, it’s about communication, process, design, and figuring out how to improve and motivate yourself.
KalX is back this year, and it’s this weekend. You NEED to go to this conference. It’s like a combination of CodeMash and TED all mashed up in one day of glorious, awesometastic content.
Shake out your schedule. Get there. It’s the region’s second best conference after CodeMash, and I don’t say that lightly.
