This year I'll be going to "Into The Box 2014" conference at the Hilton Homewood Suites by Mall of America, Bloomington, MN. USA. "Into The Box 2014" is May 13, one day before and near CFObjective.
I try to attend two training events a year. Last year it was Scotch On the Rocks and RailsConf. This year I'll be doing a week Java training, a scrum master 2 day class, and "Into The Box 2014". I pay for my own training usually and started budgeting Dave Ramsey style so you can bet I am not spending my cash lightly.
It is a good deal & if you fly in early you should join me and the other conference attendies. I am actually attending "Into The Box 2014"and not making it to CFObjective so if you aren't attending CFObjective, join me too.
Here are some session I am looking forward to attending.
