I'm taking a bit of a breather from all of my event travel of the last few weeks, but I wanted to make sure that you, my loyal blog readers, have advanced notice of a couple large developer conferences coming up in October.

For those of you in the North Central area of the US, the 2006 Annual Heartland Developers Conference will be coming up in Omaha, NE on October 26 and 27 (two days!!!).  There is a great collection of speakers, although it appears that anyone can get their name on the list (look at the 4th one down).  Added bonus: one of the web buttons has this Charleton Heston-looking fellow, which inspires confidence in me (and strangely, the urge to pick up some automatic weapons the next time I'm at my neighborhood pawn shop).

If you don't live in North Central, don't despair - the devLink Technical Conference is drawing a great set of speakers ('yours truly' not included... this time around) on October 13 in Nashville, TN.  This event is free and has lots of great prizes (scroll down to the bottom of the page) - everyone loves prizes, so check this one out :-D
