Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

Which conference would you attend?

I try to go to a conference every year. Last year it was Web Builder in Vegas, and it was a great time - but not enough Java stuff. So this year I'm going to try and attend a conference that is more up my alley. Here's the three I'm trying to decide between:

In reality, I'd like to go to all. Regardless of the other two, I'm pretty sure I'll attend the one in Denver. I know Jay Zimmerman (the organizer), and I don't mind giving him my money at all. After all, he is a fellow Montanan! I'd really like to attend the one in Boston, but that'd be a spendy trip with hotel and all. As for the O'Reilly Convention in Oregon, my parents live in Salem (40 miles south of Portland), so that one might work out well. However, we usually try to do the 4th of July at the cabin, it might be rough travel to Oregon so quickly after basking in the Montana Summer. I'll probably settle for Denver and maybe hit up another one towards the end of the year.

Jay's been talking and organising a conference in Cincinatti, which is withing travelling distance, plus his conferences look a) Very good quality and b) Very affordable. However, he chose the one weekend of the year when I have to be out of the country for a wedding. Friends are trying to convince me to goto Defcon, but I've no interest in it. So my money is being saved for the ApacheCon [assuming it happens] in November. The talks seem quite interesting and I want to meet all these people.

Start speaking at them and you'll get to go to them all :)) I'm still waiting to hear from OSCON from the proposals I submitted, but its possible I'll go to it either way. See you in Denver next month!

You could probably learn quite a bit about the "advantages" of .NET at TheServerSide Symposium :)
