We held the first CocoaConf in Columbus, Ohio, on August 12th, 2011. Since then, we’ve held 15 events in 9 states, with over a hundred speakers, and we’ve seen over twelve hundred attendees learning from and enjoying CocoaConf events!
This Spring, we are going to build on that momentum by bringing CocoaConf events — including two of our new single-track CocoaConf Minis — to five U.S. cities:
Chicago, Illinois – March 7-8
Washington, DC – March 28-29
Austin, Texas (Mini) – April 4-5
San Jose, California – April 25-26
Raleigh, North Carolina (Mini) – May 9-10
Each of our standard CocoaConf events will include optional pre-conference workshops.
CocoaConf Mini is everything you love about CocoaConf, only in a slimmer package: an intense, focused, and engaging training conference that’s approachable and affordable. As always, we’ll bring in some of the brightest minds in the industry — but with a Mini, they’ll all be in a single-track, so you won’t have to try to split yourself in two to catch your favorite presenters.
We’ll still have two days packed full of great technical sessions and awesome networking opportunities. And, of course, you’ll get the much sought-after CocoaConf mug!
We will be holding two Minis this Spring, in Austin and Raleigh, with more to follow in the Fall.
While we finish filling our speaker rosters and adding great sessions, we are offering Early Bird rates that will save you up to $150!
Early Bird tickets for the three standard CocoaConf events are $450 (conference tickets plus a workshop ticket are $650). Early Bird tickets for the Austin and Raleigh Minis are $400.
The Early Bird registration for all Spring Tour events ends on January 31st.
There’s a lot of new shiny to talk about. You won’t want to miss it!
See you soon,
The CocoaConf Team
