Web Directions NorthThe special rate for buying your tickets to Web Directions North, held in Vancouver in February next year, ends in just over a week.

While I’ll always have a soft spot for the original Web Directions South conference held in Sydney each year, there’s no denying that its sister conference — now in its second year — has one of the most enviable programs going. With a huge line-up of incredible speakers and two days of excellent workshops, WDN is undoubtedly up there as one of the conferences to attend for web professionals.

But on top of that, this conference plays its trump card by offering two days of skiing or snowboarding with speakers and other attendees.

SitePoint will be there as proud sponsors of the conference, and many of SitePoint’s recent titles will be available for sale to conference-goers. Additionally, Cameron Adams (author of several SitePoint books) will be delivering a workshop titled Frontiers of JavaScript. If you’ve learned your JavaScript skills from any of these books, you’ll enjoy this full day of hands-on learning from The Man In Blue himself.

Pah, Vancouver might have great skiing and boarding, but Australia has beautiful beaches. Oh drat, Vancouver has them too — sounds like the perfect place to hold a conference…
