An Event Apart Chicago

Published 12 years, 6 months ago

Back when we announced An Event Apart Atlanta, there was a promise of more cities to come:

Can’t make Atlanta on April 3rd? Event Apart seminars in Seattle, Chicago, and Los Angeles (not necessarily in that order) are up next.

The first of those three has now been announced: An Event Apart Chicago, to be held June 2nd, 2006 at the Gleacher Center right in the heart of downtown Chicago.  Not only will this show reprise the speaker lineup from our Philadelphia show, but our first foray to the Windy City will also feature Jim Coudal as a guest speaker.  He’s a respected Web designer and founder of Coudal Partners, the guy behind Jewelboxing, The Show, and The Deck, and (along with Jason Fried) opened this year’s SXSW Interactive.  He hasn’t chosen his specific topic as I write this, but as far as I’m concerned he can call it “An Hour of Jim Coudal Talking About Whatever The Hell He Wants”.

Registration is already open, so if you’re planning to attend, don’t tarry.  (In fact, just as I went to post this, the first registration came in!)  We have a hard limit on the number of seats available, so when they’re gone, they’re gone.  Much as it pained us, we had to turn away a number of people from the first two Events.  If you want to avoid paining us further, register soon.


  1. How about An Event Apart in London! Please!

  2. Ditto. Pretty Please!

    (Or better yet, Oxford…)

  3. I saw ya at the Gleacher Center last Fall doing your thing solo for Carson Workshops. We’ve been hoping you’d do Chicago! (I’m the Scooter Geek.) I will camp outside my manager’s office until he relents to send me to Chicago for this!

  4. Eric, I am thrilled I got to meet you today at AEA Atlanta.

    I did have a lot of fun, although I really wished I had gotten to hear you speak more, and that there were more in-depth, code sessions than there were.

    Anyways, have a safe trip back home, and thanks for coming to the south… (I’m from Biloxi, MS) but I figure Atlanta was about as far south as you guys were going to come, especially since the situation with Katrina in New Orleans.

    I look forward to seeing you again soon, and thank again for the attention to details… your presentation(s) were something that I did truly enjoy.

    Cheers!

  5. Yep, ALA London, top banana!

    Want to hear from JZ and his hat!
