Registration kicked off without any significant hitches (that I’m aware of)…so far so good. I ditched out of the conference floor before the pre-conference sessions let out, so I haven’t heard any reviews yet.
If you were here last year, it’s a little different…and by that I mean completely the opposite of the way it was done last year. The sessions and breakfast are done at the Clarion. Lunches and the Tuesday night event are at the Hyatt. Welcome to backwards world.
Insider tips (aka answers to questions I got a lot today):
- Yes, most people take the skywalk between venues. Catch the people with the blue ribbons on their name badges, we usually know where we’re going and would be glad to show you the way.
- Yes, parking is free for attendees at the Clarion (first come, first served), if you have any issues with that we can help.
- Monday night is really the only meal “on your own” that you have to worry about, but we try to setup interest groups so you can still hang with attendees and keep the discussion going. Tip: Dinosaur BBQ…totally worth it.
I’m off for now, time to hit the Orientation session and then dinner. I’ll post more as it comes to me. Don’t forget, we’re highedwebdev2007 on Flickr 🙂
