I heard about LavaCon from [a colleague], with whom I work. She raves about this conference, and I felt this conference would be a great benefit to my ongoing education.

I have always envied her attending this conference, but I could not attend until now. I look forward to the brochure, the e-news, and, of course, the conference in October! — B.G. Project Manager

This is the best conference I go to each year! — A.A., Senior Technical Staff Member, IBM

The balance of concrete solutions presented in some sessions and problem-solving in others made for an excellent learning experience. — J.H., Business Owner

Thanks for putting on such a great conference. I learned a great deal. It was helpful to attend a conference for senior [developers] and managers — .B.C., Sr. Developer

I have attended and presented at various conferences over the years. Some offer classes that are too basic or general. Some focus only on specific technical areas. I spend my training budget on the LavaCon conference because I think it is the best value for my staff. The agenda offers an excellent variety of sessions—so many choices that often it is difficult to choose which to attend! I like sending my staff to LavaCon because there are more advanced topics than [other conferences]. — K.S., Manager – Technical Communication

This is a good conference, partly because the topics are geared toward decision makers: strategists, management, and so on. It gives people the opportunity to branch out and think of their profession in different ways. — R.B., CMS Consultant

“Worth every penny, PLUS! Last year, I took what I learned and immediately used it, allowing me to earn several thousand dollars more in the first negotiation I was involved in. Given the things I learned this year, I expect to not only increase my company’s earnings but minimize many risks. I’m much more informed. Looking forward to next year!” — JG, Consultant

“Nice mix of theory and tools.” — N.I., Project Manager
