I just got an email about the Dx3 conference, something I've been following for a while. It now looks like it's starting to take shape, so I wanted to make sure everyone knows about it. Dx3 stands for Design, Develop, and Deploy and it looks like it's going to be one of the encompassing RIA conference this year. It is being held in Boston at the Marriott Copley Place, May 15th through 18th. I think it also might be the conference I'm most looking forward to.
Dx3 is being put on by lynda.com and it is going to cover the designer developer workflow as well as most of the major Rich Internet Application technologies. We're going to see Flash, WPF, WPF/E, Flex and Apollo so there will be no shortage of RIA goodness. The speakers look to be absolutely top notch and some of my favorite industry folks are going to be there. Some of the highlights:
- Lee Brimlow on Making the Ideal Real: WPF in Real World Development
- David Mendels giving the Adobe keynote
- Aral Balkan on Flash your Wii
- Brad Becker on Blend and Design
- Beau Amber on Experience by Design
- Eric Zocher giving the Expression Keynote.
I'm absolutely stoked about this conference, and I can't wait to see what other sessions they add. If you want to be a part of what looks to be a phenomenal conference, registration is open. I'm not sure if they've finalized the speakers list yet, but I've been brainstorming topics I can cover because I think it would be a blast to speak at this thing. I think it's a great sign for the momentum of experience, design and Rich Internet Applications. Hopefully this is the first of many Dx3s
