Conferences - New Conference - Into the Box - Day Before cf.Objective() - May 13, 2014

cfObjective, ColdBox, Conferences

It's Coming! The first ever Box focused conference.
May 13th, 2014 - 1 day before cf.Objective() 

Yes, thats right, cf.Objective() just got a little better, because the day before cf.Objective(), Ortus Solutions, makers of ColdBox, ContentBox and everything *Box are hosting their own 1 day Conference with speakers from around the world... called Into the Box.

The speakers and schedule are not 100% finalized just yet, but there will be a couple of bigger community members speaking, as well as all of the Team ColdBox people... and maybe yours truly, but I'm not sure if thats a selling point or not :) 

With the release of TestBox, it looks like Testing will have a strong showing, as it seems to be a hot topic right now... but you will have the opportunity to get introduced to all of the ColdBox related Box products, as well as some more advanced topics too for those already familiar with the Box family. There will be 2 tracks, so there will be options for content, and plenty of time to start the networking early.

The venue for this event is the Homewood Suites by Hilton, right across the road from the Radison Blu at the Mall of America. 

Homewood Suites by Hilton Minneapolis-Mall Of America
2261 Killebrew Drive 
Bloomington, MN 55425

FYI - Right next to the Homewood Suites is the Country Inn and Suites, which is a nice Hotel, and a good deal cheaper than the Radison Blu. If you want to some on accommodation, and you can get to cf.Objective() a couple of days early, and say in the Country Inn and Suites for both Conferences, if you wanted to.

You can sign up for announcements at their temporary website here at Their full website is almost ready, and when that is announced you will get all the information you need. Until then, follow them on twitter @GoIntoTheBox.
If you are already sold, you can go online today and pick up your tickets from EventBrite here 

Last year I attended a 3 day Pre-Conference Training and made a week out of cf.Objective(), and this year is looking great again with Into the Box to get things kicked off. I hope to see you all there, make this a week of learning and networking.

See you there,
