Today we’re pleased to announce our first ever SpreeConf to be held in New York City on February 15-16, 2012. This is a great opportunity to learn more about Spree and the other technologies that power it. We have a great lineup of speakers and a really incredible keynote speaker. There will also be a full day of training on Rails, jQuery, Coffee Script and Spree.
Conferences are the life blood of any open source project. They represent an invaluable opportunity for the developers and users of software to connect and help shape the future of the project. The conference will not be exclusively focused on Spree. Our goal was to do something that would be interesting for Spree users but also helpful to Rails developers in general. So there will be some general talks that may touch on Spree when applicable and there will be some Spree talks that will also introduce concepts that are applicable outside of Spree.
The price of the conference is only $99 and it includes a full day of training and a second day of talks. The space for training is limited so we encourage you to sign up now since we expect to fill up the training slots quickly. We’ve also made arrangements to get a special hotel rate with the Cooper Square Hotel which is located near the conference. For those traveling on a budget, you may be able to find something more affordable through our friends at Airbnb
