(Jan 3, 2013: Updated ticket price and discount info added to end of post)
Renaissance, the iOS app makers’ conference, is happening in San Francisco from January 21-23. It looks to be an excellent event and I am excited to be a part of it.
As part of the program, Chris Clark from Square and I will be presenting Beautiful Text, a session covering both design and technical aspects of text in iOS apps.
In addition, Renaissance will feature a special musical performance by James Dempsey and the Breakpoints.
My excitement for the conference goes beyond any particular session. I believe Renaissance will be an experience much greater than the sum of its parts. Here are a few things that have me looking forward to Renaissance:
The lineup of speakers is impressive. I would go out of my way to hear any number of these folks speak individually. With so many people I respect and admire presenting, the event promises to be something special.
The conference format means that by hearing development, design and business topics woven together in a single track, you can take in everything without missing anything. I think bringing topics together that are often sequestered in separate tracks will spark a lot of interesting ideas.
Finally, I’m looking forward to meeting a lot of great people at the conference. Twitter, Skype and email can be fantastic ways to keep in touch, but there is something about meeting people in person that has yet to be matched by communication technology.
If you are considering coming to Renaissance, the price goes up on January 1st, so now is a great time to book the ticket. (Plus, if you live someplace cold and snowy, attending Renaissance can also be the literal rebirth of getting the feeling back in your fingers and toes.)
If you are already coming to Renaissance, please say hello. It would be great to meet you. I really hope to see you there. •
