Web Directions South

The Australian web community is buzzing ahead of the Web Directions South conference in Sydney later this week. As usual, a contingent of friendly and fun-loving folks from SitePoint HQ will be attendance. Also as usual, we’re hiring!

If you’ll be at the conference, be sure to say “Hi!” to Lucas Chan, Matt Magain, Andrew Krespanis, or myself when you see us. We’ll be the pale guys in blue and orange. Oh, and watch out for a fun SitePoint freebie in your conference bag!

If you can’t make it (it’s in Sydney, Australia, after all!), be sure to watch SitePoint for extensive coverage from the event!

Wherever you are, we hope you’ll be cheering us on when they announce the winner of this year’s McFarlane Prize, for which SitePoint has been shortlisted.

No, SitePoint won’t be giving away free drinks at the closing night party this year, but read on if that’s your cup of … erm … long island iced tea!

Webjam

Of course, Web Directions South isn’t the only reason to be in Sydney this week! The day after the conference, SitePoint is sponsoring Webjam, where a bunch of web developers gather to show off their latest projects in 3 minutes or less, with the audience voting via SMS to spur on the competitive atmosphere.

“Sponsoring,” you ask? “Don’t you mean giving out drink cards to anyone who will talk to you?”

Why yes, we do.
