WoW! That is a lot of great information right? Yes, your head will be spinning for the tiny fee to attend! Don’t forget I am doing a dinner thing the night BEFORE the event as well and yet to be announced goofing off in Chicago during the day on Thursday.

Lastly, when the speakers are not in session they are normally around (or in the bar/restaurant) and you can pick their brains all you want about whatever. Who knows, maybe they will share some bits they never ever blog about! Hope to see you there. – René

  1. Always wanted to attend this types of events, but hard to attend. Would be nice to have a remote option via the web. After all, it is 2017.

  2. @Evan – Much more fun in person. Plus the food and drinks taste better live! 🙂 (Did I mention Chicago Pizza)!
