CIDC 2013 is the official Clarion Devcon and will take place in Orlando, Florida, USA from Wednesday September 25 to Friday September 27. Attended by all the major luminaries in the Clarion community, as well as developers and the CEO of SoftVelocity, it is the premium Clarion event of the year. This year looks to be especially packed with great sessions and useful information. I know John and Arnold are working hard to make sure that there is plenty of practical knowledge imparted at the event - things you can go home and use immediately to make your application better. There's Early Bird pricing until June 30, so start negotiating now (with the powers that be) to free yourself up for that week.
To make the week even more valuable I'll be running a NetTalk training class on Monday the 23rd and Tuesday the 24th. This is the first live training I've done on NetTalk in quite some time and it's likely to be a fair while before the next one, so if you have an opportunity to attend then it's not something you should lightly pass up. While this will include material from the training I did in 2010, NetTalk has grown in leaps and bounds, so the notes have been updated, and most of the material will be focused on things that have been added, or changed, since that time.

Making the move to any new platform is a huge undertaking, and not a little bit scary. If you are new to the web then this class affords you an opportunity to radically speed up your learning curve, and become productive a lot faster than you would if you had to work through the material by yourself. Yes, it will be an intensive two days, but at the end of it you will be well on your way to creating your own apps on the web.
For more experienced NetTalk users I will be focusing on the things in NetTalk you may not have seen before. I guarantee there are things you've missed along the way, and I've no doubt that you'll get numerous gems from this event. I'll also be speaking on more advanced topics and it'll be the ideal training for taking your apps to the next level.
Of course two days is too little time for the brain to hear, assimilate and remember, so we'll be providing a detailed training manual to go with the event. The event will also be recorded, and recordings will be made available for free to those that attend. For those that can't attend we'll be making both the notes, and videos available after the event - for a price. I know not everyone can get to Orlando and I want to make sure that this is as widely available as possible. Of course there's no substitute for being there though!
In co-operation with CIDC we've managed to create even more value for those that attend both events. While it is possible to register for just the conference, or just NetTalk, there is a significant discount if you attend both. By negotiating hard with the hotel we've managed to keep costs as low as we possible can, and the value for two days of training, notes, videos and lunch is unprecedented. If you're unable to make the trip, you can attend online.

The time, money, and effort you take to invest in yourself now, will have a massive payoff in the long run. We hope to see you there.
