Which Conference Should I go to - Help me in 2008

This post is more than 18 months old. Since technology changes to rapidly, this content may be out of date (but that's not always the case). Please remember to verify any technical or programming information with the current release.

So, luckily, my current employer will pay and make arrangements for me to attend one major conference each year. Last year I attended Mysqlconf, the year before, Zend Con.

Which should I go to this year? Here are the things to consider:

  • I don’t have a US passport - so it has to be in the US - Unless there is enough lead time to get a passport (how much time does that take anymore these days? Do I need to wear the mark of the beast now? squints at Real-ID)

  • It has to be something web related (yah very clear Aaron - thanks. Microsoft makes front page and windows Live search - does that make them web related? sigh This means web programming language, analysis or tool based. I don’t know how more broad ones like ‘future of web apps’ types would work…)

  • I’d like it to be focused on open source (oracle fans, be damned!)

So - it’s pretty simple. Any suggestions?
