It may be cliche, but to paraphrase Johnny Cash, “We’ve been everywhere, man.”
This week, we take Dyn Nation across the pond and then some to Amsterdam for the sixth edition of The Next Web Conference. Then, we’re off to Philly next week for a stop at the J. Boye Digital Marketing event. And then, there’s Interop and the Red Hat Conference.
Johnny’s got nothing on us.
The Next Web Conference
The three-day Next Web Conference was designed to “bring together the best audience and companies from Europe and the US to discuss the future of the web and mobile.” They do a great job of listing out exactly why they feel the conference is different (no free passes, no company pitches in presentations, etc) and people have responded as over 1200 are expected at this year’s event. You can even join the Hackathon if you desire.
Speakers include Mark Randall from Adobe, Werner Vogels from Amazon, Mario Sundar from LinkedIn and more.
We are a sponsor of the event (a “Mega” sponsor, no less) and will be represented by VP, Sales and Marketing Kyle York who will giving a presentation entitled “The Secret Behind High-Performance Websites — Rock-Solid DNS“. You can probably guess what the topic matter will be, but if you happen to be in the Netherlands for the conference, be at the In-Depth Stage at 13:45 Netherlands time on Friday to check it out.
J. Boye Conference
After a successful presentation at Harvard and run on SlideShare in March and, yours truly was asked to replicate “Social Media vs. Email: Why Does There Have To Be A .Vs?” as part of the J.Boye Digital Marketing Conference in Philadelphia, PA, on May 3-5.
J.Boye has built up a large community of web/digital professionals and began putting on conferences in Denmark several years ago, expanding to Philadelphia in 2009. Similar to TNW, J.Boye promotes open dialogue and a pitch-free presentation environment. I will be part of the digital marketing track on Thursday, doing my presentation at 3:15 pm. Tickets are still available, but with this announcement, I’m sure they will sell out quickly.
As for Interop and Red Hat, expect separate posts on those events this week as we have some big things happening at both.
And as always, autographs are free.
