An Event Apart Boston Registration Open

A new year is upon us, and it brings a new An Event Apart with it. We have moved to a two-day conference format, jammed packed with design and code, and attractive speakers. The first city we’ll be visiting is Boston on March 26-27, at the Boston Marriott Copley. Speakers include: Steve Krug, Dan Cederholm, Molly Holzschlag, Andrew Kirkpatrick, Cameron Moll, Ethan Marcotte, Eric Meyer, Jeffrey Zeldman, and me!


Early bird registration is open now, and if you use my super secret, super special discount code “AEASTAN” you’ll get an extra $50 off your admission price. Hotcha!

I’ll find out if the powers that be will approve the expense on Monday. Chances look good and my fingers are crossed. Oooh, can’t wait can’t wait! Thanks for the super secret code. That could be a big help!

Unfortunately, my company is no longer lettting us expense conferences, so I’m paying my own way this year. If I can’t make enough for SxSW, I’ll have to use the money to go to this one.

Too bad Manchester is too small for An Event Apart. :(

I wish I could attend. Maybe next year. I’ve yet to experience the awesomeness that is An Event Apart…

Yeah same. It’s difficult for me though as I live in Manchester UK. I hope I’ll be able to go next year though. Maybe they can bring it to the UK.

@Ian - we have the GMEX. That place is pretty big. I wouldn’t care if it was in London honestly. A train ticket is cheaper than air fare :)

The UK is definitely on our agenda. It may not be this year, but perhaps next year.

Already registered and looking forward to it. Hope to grab one of these by then.

I love this comment form BTW. If you’re textpatterned, I’d love to read how you did it. I’d love to know in either case, for that matter.

Jason, any plans on bringing AEA back to Philly?

8. Diana says… jan 15, 2007 | 10:59 pm

I attended AEA NYC, and this year I convinced my company to let me attend AEA Boston, so I’ll be there in March.

I had a great time in NYC and came away with some much information. Really looking forward to Boston :)

Kevin Jackson: I doubt it will happen right away, but I am always pushing to get more happening in Philly.

Diana: Great to hear you’ll be back! There’s going to be tons of new stuff!

Jason, are there any plans in the works to offer special prices for qualified students for AEA?

11. Jason Santa Maria says… jan 17, 2007 | 3:42 pm

Kyle Tress: There most certainly are student discounts! Check out the top of the AEA Store page which has an contact email and phone number to get the Student discount info you need.
