As I've stated before, I'll be speaking at YAPC::NA 2008, which is coming up June 16-18th in Chicago. I'll be doing a talk on why more software systems should have something like the WebGUI Runtime Environment; and another on why WebGUI is the best platform for web development. In addition, other Plain Black staff will be in attendance at the Expo and Job fair.
What you may not know is that I'll also be doing a free WebGUI developer workshop. The workshop will be about 4 hours long. In it I'll give a basic demo of how to use WebGUI, talk about the important parts of the API as a beginning WebGUI developer, and then do a hands on session where everyone can build both a macro and a content handler. And finally I'll finish up the workshop by talking about the almost 20 different plugin points that WebGUI has, and what they're used for.
If you've thought that you might want to learn a little about WebGUI development, this is a great way to get a head start. As long as you have a badge for YAPC (which only costs $100), you can get in to this workshop absolutely free. And I'll be giving out free t-shirts, stickers, pens, and Gooey dolls to those in attendance.
