d.Construct 2006 Launches!

by oneafrikan on June 22, 2006

Andy Budd has sent a heads up of the next d.construct conference:

Further to my hints a couple of weeks ago, I’m pleased to announce the official launch of d.Construct 2006.

If you’ve not heard of d.Construct, it’s a low-cost grassroots web development conference we run in Brighton. The conference is all about web applications and web 2.0, and this year’s theme is mash-ups and APIs.

We’ve got a fantastic list of international speakers this year, including the likes of Jeffrey Veen, Derek Featherstone, Thomas Vander Wal and Jeff Barr.

We also have a great line-up of local talent including Simon Willison, Paul Hammond, Aral Balkan and our very own Jeremy Keith.

Last year’s event was so successful it actually sold out within half an hour. To make sure people don’t miss out this year, we’ve found a larger venue and have increased ticket numbers to 350. We could have gone higher, but we wanted to keep the event small and personal. I’ve been to a lot of big events recently and it becomes impossible to catch up with all the people you want to see.

Sounds good – missed last years one by 6 minutes (tickets were there at 12:30, gone by 12:36), so I’m hoping to be there!


Here is a question? What are south africans doing in terms of web, i’d love to partake in a conference in south africa.

anybody keen? i am dead keen, i think it would be good to get a perspective of what south africans (and all of africa) is thinking about the new, 2nd, wave of web?

what would it take? do you think it would be good idea? if anybody is down, let me know i am keen, very keen, to set one up,,,
