Just before noon (Eastern U.S. time) today, An Event Apart Minneapolis sold its last available seat. That’s three events so far in 2010 and three sell-outs. If you were hoping to join us in Minneapolis but hadn’t registered yet, we’re sorry we won’t see you there! You can contact our Event Manager to get put on the waiting list, or you can join us for one of the remaining two shows of the year: Washington DC and San Diego.
There are strong reasons to prefer either one. In Washington DC, we’ll have our second-ever A Day Apart, a full day of in-depth learning with Jeremy Keith and Ethan Marcotte taking on the topics of HTML5 and CSS3, respectively. We ran A Day Apart in Seattle earlier this year as something of an experiment, and it was such a huge hit that we immediately decided to add it to a future show. We settled on Washington DC for a variety of reasons, not least of which was that the hotel had the space available to add a third day. So far as we know it’s the last time we’ll do A Day Apart in 2010, so if you’re interested, it’s the place to be.
San Diego, on the other hand… well, it’s San Diego! In November! It’s also the last chance to see our 2010 lineup of speakers, who’ve been consistently hitting it out of the park with insightful thinking and bold challenges to the status quo. We may never again see this particular combination of pure smarts and talent, so if you can’t make it to DC (or you’d rather just hit the beach in advance of Thanksgiving) then come on down.
From mobile design to advanced CSS to the latest in HTML5 to smart content to wonderful design, the sessions at AEA this year have been outstanding. The audience feedback has been really incredible, almost overwhelming. If you haven’t seen this year’s lineup, you should really consider checking it out. We’d love to see you there!
(P.S. Want to hear more about An Event Apart’s origin story, growth, vision, and future? Tune in to The Big Web Show this Thursday at 1pm Eastern U.S.! I’ll be a guest along with Andy McMillan—he of the fabulous Build Conference of Belfast—talking about web conferences and more. And if you miss the live show, don’t worry; there will be a lovingly edited version up shortly after we’re done taping.)
