If you live in San Francisco, and have an interest in web applications, you may want to attend the “Future of Web Apps” summit on September 13th & 14th, 2006.
“This is an exceptional opportunity to discover how the web’s most successful sites and applications were built, plus you’ll get expert practical advice from the best in the business on creating your own web app. Whether you’re a developer, business owner or entrepreneur, join us for this exclusive two-day audience with the biggest names in web development.”
They aren’t kidding about those names. Check out the list on the site. If it were free, I would go in a second. Although it’s not too expensive ($295 US), I can’t justify it, as I don’t make web apps. It would just be cool to hear what those people have to say about how they got started.
