In just 2 weeks, from March 2-3 2017, ElixirDaze will take place at the Casa Monica hotel in St. Augustine, FL. Our venerable founder Ed Finkler will be there to talk about mental health in the developer community. Today is the last day to buy tickets for the ElixirDaze training day on March 1st, and tomorrow regular conference registration prices will go up, so be sure to register today if you've been thinking about going but haven't purchased tickets yet.
It's still a month away, but we're so excited to be invading Minnesota that we figured we'd go ahead and post about it today. We'll keep reminding you as the date grows closer. Early bird tickets are still available until Wednesday, so if you haven't registered yet, now is a great time to do so.
Many of the other speakers are longtime supporters as well. If you're attending Midwest PHP, be sure to look for our booth, where we'll be available to talk all things OSMI.
We're big fans of Mental Illness Happy Hour. What else should we be listening to?
The speaker line-up and schedule for the first-ever polyglot CoderCruise was announced recently, and we're happy to say that OSMI volunteer Amanda Folson will be taking part, with a talk about mental health in tech titled Silence is Deadly. It will take place on the second at-sea day, July 17th, at 11:30am in Chambers II.
Amanda will also be giving a technical talk titled Give Me A REST! at 9:30am on July 22nd (the third full day at sea) in Chambers II. Other speakers include several longtime OSMI supporters, so it looks to be a great event.
Conference passes are still available and are only $295; however, the cruise must be booked separately. For more information, check out the CoderCruise website.
OSMI founder Ed Finkler will be giving his talk Stronger Than Fear: Mental Health in the Developer Community on Wednesday at 11:30am, right after the morning break. If you're at LoopConf as well, come say hi.
