This week: five new add-ons and thoughts about the 2013 ExpressionEngine Conference.
Thoughts on the 2013 ExpressionEngine Conference
Brad Parscale and his team put on a well-organized and fun conference this year in Portland, Oregon. There was a great turnout, the team from EllisLab was very active and engaged with the community, and the talks were informative as usual. This year there were awards, and in a unanimous vote devot:ee won the "Best Impact to the ExpressionEngine Community" award. We appreciate that very much–thank you!
Brad hinted that next year the conference would likely be on the East coast. If you haven't come to an ExpressionEngine conference before, you should consider going. The talks don't only cover ExpressionEngine development, they cover business practices and life experience as well. Thanks to Brad and his crew for a great two days.
