Retreat 4 Geeks 2012

As the year draws to a close, I find myself casting an eye back on the past twelve months. There are two events that stand out for me:

I learned a lot at both events. I think there’s enormous benefit in getting together with your peers for days of intense geekery—it’s quite the learning experience.

Looking ahead to next year, there’s one more such event on the horizon.

Aaron started up Retreats 4 Geeks last year and kicked it off with an outstanding week in the woods with Eric. From March 25th to 30th Aaron and I will be leading Retreat 4 Geeks on Progressive Enhancement. Here’s the best bit: it’ll be taking place on a horse ranch in Clark, Colorado.

I’m expecting an intense three days of hands-on coding bookended with some fun outdoor activities. Based on my experiences this year with these kinds of in-depth, focused gatherings, I think it’s going to be pretty special.

If that sounds like something you’d like to be a part of, you can register your place now. Everything—except your airfare—is included: excellent food, luxurious lodging and multiple days of learning and practicing progressive enhancement and mobile-first responsive design. And if you need any assistance in convincing your boss to fork out for the event, there’s a handy factsheet you can download, print out and leave in convenient spots around the office.

So …maybe I’ll see you in the Rockies?
