The schedules for SXSWi and Etech are looking quite excellent this time around. Work isn't sending me to SXSW this year and I opted to save up for Spain in May rather than pay for the trip myself. It's a real bummer not to attend but I'm also not in a very productive space for career development or increasing my skills at this point. I still have so much to get back on track just in terms of day to day job and life stuff.
If you plan on attending please take copious notes and post them. (I'm talking to you Haney.)
