Although they are expensive, the O’Reilly Conferences are often the most prestigious in technology, bringing participants from the cutting edge of the specialized disciplines. If you are working with mapping, maps, geography, or websites that integrate those features in an important way, Where 2.0 is one of the top conferences for you.
For those on a budget or far away note that many technology conferences now offer real time video feeds, Twitter and social media tagging, and other features designed to bring remote participants right into the action. In fact if you are clever and stay on task you are likely to learn more following conferences online than in person because that often allows you to multitask more effectively. Of course you’ll miss the energy of human interaction which is a good reason to personally attend a few conferences each year in areas you find particularly interesting.
