WebEdge, Inc. today announced the opening of WebEdge4, the leading technology conference for the MacOS Web community, featuring more hands-on classes and opportunities than ever before.
Special emphasis this year will be on sessions oriented toward solving real-world problems, with expanded hours for the hack-room, more flexibility in scheduling hands-on training classes, and 75 PowerMacs on a T1 line.
Held at the Renaissance Hotel, in Austin, the conference will run from Sept. 9 through Sept. 11. Classroom sessions, panel discussions, product demos, and a vendor fair will also be included in the agenda. Cost for the entire conference is $895. A pre-festivity bash was held in the evening on Sunday, Sept. 8 in conjunction with registration, giving attendees the opportunity to schmooze some of the best minds in the MacOS Web community.
"We are proud to bring you some of the world's leading Mac experts and their latest web technologies," explained Carl deCordova, Apple Internet Evangelist and co-founder of the WebEdge conference series. "We hope Webmasters will take advantage of this unique opportunity to work closely with some of the best people in the industry over the three conference days during classes, demos, discussions and workshops. They won't want to miss our evening activities because like most WebEdges, much of the best stuff will happen outside class in the corridors, hack rooms and elsewhere. Besides, sleep is for wimps."
"WebEdge is THE place to be to get down and dirty with the latest and greatest Web solutions for the MacOS," remarked David Thompson, senior product manager at the StarNine division of Quarterdeck. "Cooking up truly practical applications for your Web site is what WebEdge4 is all about and we're delighted to be sponsoring the best hands-on conference for MacOS Webmeisters."
Besides the StarNine division of Quarterdeck, sponsors of WebEdge4 include: Apple, EveryWare, Maxum, and Microsoft.
A Complete Agenda
Sessions are scheduled for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday morning and will include classroom instruction, hands-on sessions, panels, and product demos. Also planned are "birds of a feather" discussions, the now famous "WebEdge Hack Competition," and a vendor fair, concluding the conference at around 3:00 pm on Wednesday.
Some of the session topics for hands-on training include CGI/plug-in development, Tango, Java and Shockwave, offering conference attendees the opportunity to work on their real-life technical problems with some of the brightest in the business. Classroom sessions will be held on security, CGI scripting, administration and MCF. The latest in Apple Internet Technologies and Java Developmental Tools will also be demonstrated.
"The WebEdge conference is going back to its roots," explained Chuck Shotton, Quarterdeck Fellow and WebEdge4 Faculty member. "The community, the focus on developing cool technologies and sites, and the emphasis on leading edge stuff is going to make this unlike any of the other Web conferences you may have been to."
Registration is Easy
Intermediate and advanced Webmasters can register for the conference for $895 at or on-site at the Renaissance Austin. Also on the WebEdge Conference Site is information on special travel discounts, the sessions and speakers, and archives from past conferences. The WebEdge Conference Site is designed to continually facilitate conferencing between MacOS-based Webmasters and Web developers year-round, even between the face-to-face WebEdge conferences.
