Just woke up to the news that the North East is to gets its first Developer Developer Developer (DDD) community conference.
The conference is community driven and community organised, and best of all free. You can submit your own proposals for sessions now. I went to one in Reading at the Microsoft campus a few years back and it was really good.
Anyway, put Saturday 8th October 2011 in your diary.
Probably won’t be able to make it unfortunately due to impending birth of my first child, but if you’ve ever thought of going to one of these things but can’t afford the travel time then now’s your chance.
