Unfortunately I haven’t been able to make it to any of the jazzy conferences in 2007. There are a few that I would’ve really liked to have attended; altnetconf, DevTeach, RailsConf and RubyConf to name a few. Luckily, you can find quite a bit of the content from some of these kinds of conferences online. Just tonight I watched a really good presentation from RubyConf 2007, Behaviour Driven Development with RSpec. There are many more I’d like to watch from RubyConf if I can find the time. And of course the awesome MVC video from ScottGu himself at altnetconf is a must see.
So for those of you, like me, who for whatever reason can’t make it to some of these conferences, here are a few good places to start:
- Confreaks (these guys do an awesome job, giving you widescreen videos with the slides/code side by side with the presenter)
- ScribeMedia (where I originally watched the RailsConf 2006 stuff)
- Parleys (saw an awesome DDD video here once)
- Google Videos (of course)
I’m sure there are many more, so leave a comment with some more good post-conference resources if you know of any.
(Hopefully my ability to join in the conference goodness will be a bit better in the coming year)
