Speaking at the ExpressionEngine and CodeIgniter Conference

by Jonathan Longnecker

The European ExpressionEngine CodeIgniter Conference

I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be doing a workshop at the ExpressionEngine and CodeIgniter Conference in Leiden, Netherlands October 22-23, 2009. I’m really excited about this trip because 1.) I’ve never been out of the country and 2.) The group of people at this conference are amazing. Honestly, I’m quite humbled by the lineup. How did I get to be invited again? I can’t even list them all here, but include household names like Leslie Camacho of EllisLab, Veerle Pieters of Duoh!, Brandon Kelly of LEVEL Studios, Leevi Graham of Newism and Ryan Irelan of Happy Cog. Like Veerle laments, I’m not much of an EE coder compared to everyone else, so here’s to hoping I can bring something good to the table. In fact, I’ll be talking about how we take our static HTML/CSS pages and speed up development putting it into EE first and then building out real links and content.

Tickets are $410 for the two day event or $255 for the first day of keynotes. I’m doing a workshop on the second day so no skimping! Actually, there’s only 20 full conference tickets left so you’d better hurry! Go register now.

Mr. Nate Croft will be joining me for the trip, and we’ll both be coming home to some huge changes. He’s moving back to Knoxville and I’ll be welcoming my son Jax Maddox to the world a week later. So if we disappear around the end of October it’s because we’re globe trotting, packing boxes and birthing babies. Now you know.

  1. Hey! That’s awesome!

    Wish I could go.. but, hey, maybe you guys could do a few EE tuts on here?  Just a thought from one humble reader smile

    Anywho, good luck and God speed with your busy busy exciting lives, you two!

  2. @Javier click that ExpressionEngine category over on the right. Lots of EE tutorials in here wink

  3. I’m looking forward to your talk at EECI.

  4. Oh, yeah.. I meant new ones. I think the last one is from, like, 2008 raspberry

  5. Hahaha dang has it been that long? We did a huge one on Category URL’s that never got tagged. I know that one’s in 2009 at least I promise smile

  6. I’m speaking as well. I’m so glad to hear someone else say, “uh, I hope I bring something to the table” because I feel like all I really want to do is sit in on everyone else’s workshops.

    At the same time. smile

    Excited to meet you there!

  7. @Mrs. Flinger, That’s right, we designers have to stick together wink. Excited to meet you as well.
