Fall Conference Roundup / by Nate Westheimer

It's that time of year again. Lots of great conferences come and go every Fall, and I always try to hit up a few of them.

This year, I'm attending 4 conferences in 30 day period. Below, find out where I'm going, what I'm doing there, discounts I can give you, and how we can meet up:

Web 2.0 Expo NY

September 27 - 30, New York, NY Discount Code (25% off): NYTM This conference is one of my favorites -- for a number of reasons. On a personal note, the SF edition was the first web conference I ever attended. I went in the spring of 2007 with my only friend in the business at the time, Michael Galpert. There we actually attended the Web 2.0 Open, which was run by (and where I met) Tara Hunt and Chris Messina.

And so, first on the calendar is the Web 2.0 Expo NY. This is the third year in NYC and I'm quite proud to have been on their Advisory Board since its first year. Also, I'm proud to be leading a Workshop called "Learning to Hack from Scratch: Wordpress for Non-Geeks," which is really just a quick primer for folks who -- like me 5 years ago -- wouldn't know the difference between PHP, mySQL, and Apache.

I hope to see you there!

Tahoe Tech Talks

Sept 30th & Oct 1st, Tahoe, NV I cannot wait for this. Best described as "Gary Vaynerchuk & Friends Talk Tech," it's a refreshingly new crowd of speakers with a lot to share I'm sure. It's also a great deal! If you're going, let me know via my contact form.

CrowdConf2010

October 4th, San Francisco, CA "The Crowd" is a major issue theses days, with MechanicalTurk and CrowdFlower leading the way. I'm looking forward to checking out this conference while I'm out on the West Coast for Tahoe Tech Talks. If you're going, let me know via my contact form.

Pivot Conference

October 17th - 19th, New York, NY Discount Code (30%): NW30OFF Pivot is another conference I'm on the Advisory Board of, and it's bound to be a great one. Designed for marketers who have made the "pivot" to social, but are looking to take things to the next level, I'm sure the 3 days of this conference will be unforgettable. To put things in perspective, the event is Executive Produced by Chris Shipley (yes, of DEMO fame) and founded by William Lohse.
