Here’s the updated calendar for this week, folks. Some new stuff on here for April, and some more regional Texas stuff.
If you’ve got something you want to pass my way, email me with the subject line “EVENT!” and I’ll try to include it on the weekly list.
Here’s what’s on my radar at the moment…
WordPress Dallas Meetup.
Saturday, February 28, 2009, 4 PM
I try to get out to the monthly meeting which has included notable Dallas WordCamp attendees like Cali Lewis, Charles Stricklin, and of course myself. It’s a great way to network in the Dallas web community, and meet some folks locally that can answer your questions about blogging, New Media and of course WordPress.
Sunday, March 01, 2009 at 6:00 PM – Tuesday, March 03, 2009
This isn’t Texas based, but Carla Thompson has pinged me on it, and there’s definitely some cool things supposedly coming out of the conference this time around. It’s a little pricey getting in, but it should be worth it.
Austin Tech Happy Hour.
Thursday, March 12, 2009 from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
You can register online for $7.50 or pay at the door for $10.
Dallas XSM 101.
Tuesday, March 10, 2009 from 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM
Social media has become a rapidly growing marketing tool for the business world. Giovanni Gallucci is a well-known expert in the industry. Learn his techniques to help utilize this tool for yourself. The course will train you to utilize the new media marketing tools of bulletin boards, videos, photos, and show you the various social media communities.
SXSW – Interactive.
Friday, March 13 – Tuesday, March 17
Obviously, I’m going to be at SXSW. If you don’t know what it is yet, go and check out their site for a quick primer. No time for that? If you’re involved in web technology at all, just go. If you don’t have the budget to go, you can sponsor me instead.
The Politics Online Conference.
Monday, April 20, 2009 – Tuesday, April 21, 2009
Last year, one of the coolest conferences I got the chance to participate in was the Politics Online Conference. It was an incredible convergence of a lot of the bright minds in the technology, politics and social media.
I just got the call a couple days ago that it’s about time to start registering again. I’ll probably begin soliciting sponsorship for that conference in a week or two, but in the mean time, if you’re in the DC area and have anything to do with the political process or the business of technology, you need to be at this conference.
Have something that should be included? Email me.
