This week I’m at a conference in Boston called The Ajax Experience. No, it’s not four days of learning how to use cleaning products. It’s all about technologies that allow for cool user interactions with content on web pages (see more on Wikipedia, if you’re interested). I’m here as part of the fairly large jQuery contingent.
So far it has been a lot of fun meeting many people whom I have only known online for the past year or so. A bunch of the people who have worked on or with jQuery went out to dinner last night at a local bar and grill. We had a good time debating about arcane topics and sharing anecdotes about our wacky misadventures with various technologies.

The conference presentations have been pretty good, for the most part. My favorites so far have been the ones led by jQuery creator (and cult leader) John Resig. I’m looking forward to “Learning to Love Forms” tonight and getting to know more about JSON tomorrow.
