Sales are going briskly. At the end of the day, two thirds of the tickets were gone.
Needless to say, I think you should grab yourself a ticket. But then, I would say that, wouldn’t I? I think the line-up is bloody brilliant: James Burke! Lauren Beukes! Jason Scott! Unnecessary exclamation points!
But before you slap your virtual money down via the Herculean challenge of Google Checkout, let me reiterate what I wrote on the dConstruct website: dConstruct is not a conference of practical web design and development tutorials.
The presentations may not contain any practical tips you can take back to work on Monday morning but you will gain insights into the direction our digital technology is taking.
If you’re looking for practical know-how, I highly recommend the workshops. The actual conference day, however, is all about challenging your brainbits and making you think.
In this interview with .net magazine Andy does a good job of explaining where dConstruct is coming from, man, and what you can expect on the day:
While other conferences try to educate and inform, dConstruct aims to enlighten and inspire – to challenge the way you think about design and technology as it applies to our industry. It’s basically brain candy for a curious mind.
If that sounds like something you’d enjoy, get a ticket. I predict they’ll probably be gone by the end of the week.
