jQuery Conference 2010: Boston – Update

Posted on by

The jQuery Conference in Boston is fast approaching and we are officially sold out.  Thank you so much for your support it’s going to be a great event.  For those that are coming there is some venue information on the Events home page if you are still looking for a cheaper hotel or if your driving to the venue, there is some parking information you’ll need to be aware of.

We are still looking for last minute sponsors.  Last minute sponsors are our favorite sponsors!

Why sponsor?  The jQuery Conference is supported by our generous Sponsors and Donors, without whom things would be very different. The jQuery Conference is a great way to get your message out to 500+ highly qualified influential technology decision makers; if you or your company are interested, download our prospectus for more information. We are willing to talk with you about a package that would work for you.  Contact information can be found on the prospectus.

Training Class Seats Still Available
I did want to remind everyone about our training class we are holding before the conference. We still have openings for the training class and it is separate from the conference.

In San Francisco, the training class was ran by appendTo and it was a great success.  In Boston, the class will be run by Bocoup, a Boston JavaScript Company.  Here are some of the details about the class.

About the class
Over the course of this one day class the group will build an exciting web application using jQuery. This class will teach you what jQuery does and how to use it responsibly in your websites. Intended for web development beginners.

Let me introduce you to the trainers.
