Colorado Software Summit
The Colorado Software Summit is calling for papers. I went last year for the first time and absolutely loved it! I blogged about each session I went to. It is a geeky place for sure, everyone there is a geek. No stuffed shirts and you just can't beat Keystone CO for a fantastic place to learn new stuff.
This years focus is on web services with Java. I highly suggest you submit a proposal and if you are not keen on public speaking then I suggest you sign up today to go. Its going to be a blast!
