If you are looking for a way to get up to speed on the latest technology, you should consider the devLink Technical Conference (www.devlink.net). This event has been around since 2006, bringing hundreds of people the chance to learn and grow. This is a full three day conference featuring industry experts talking about a variety of relevant topics for developers, architects, database administrators and even project managers. You might think an event like this would cost $1000 or more, but you would be wrong. As a matter of fact, the most amazing thing about devLink is the price. At $100 a ticket (or less if you register early) it costs less than two good technical books. Don't be fooled, just because devLink doesn't cost a small fortune doesn't mean it is cheap.
