7 Reasons to Attend Dot All

Sep 18, 2017 in Announcements

Dot All, the Craft developer conference, is quickly approaching and if you’re on the fence about whether or not to attend, we’ve come up with seven reasons why you should. (They also make great talking points to use when convincing your boss why they should send you and your entire dev team to the conference!)

  1. The opportunity to connect with the Craft Community. The Craft Community is an incredibly active, friendly, helpful, and accepting community. At Dot All you’ll have the opportunity to meet the person who helped you in Craft Slack and buy them a beer!
  2. Ryan Irelan’s Craft 3 workshop. Ryan Irelan, the man behind Mijingo, Craft’s official training partner, will be leading a workshop on Craft 3 best practices, templating, and how to move existing Craft 2 sites onto Craft 3. This all-day workshop will allow for lots of Q&A and specific use cases. There are only a few spots left, so get your ticket ASAP.
  3. The Craft dev team is hosting a plugin lab. Get help writing plugins for Craft 3, and learn how to be prepared for the Plugin Store, directly with the full Craft dev team including founder and CEO Brandon Kelly, during the all-day Plugin Lab.
  4. An amazing speaker lineup. We’ve put together a group of some of the strongest Craft developers to speak about a diverse range of topics relevant to Craft and modern web development. From SEO to editorial design to Craft tips and tricks—there will be some great takeaways.
  5. Portland is really cool. Portland is known for its specialty coffee, award-winning craft beer, and amazing food. The conference is taking place at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI), a top Portland attraction and not far from some of our Portland favorites: Ground Kontrol, Multnomah Whiskey Library, and Salt & Straw. Portland has great public transportation so exploring the city is easy!
  6. It’s affordable. We understand that conferences can get expensive and we’ve done everything we can to keep Dot All affordable. We want developers from all over the world and of all skill levels to be able to attend, so lunch is included both days of the conference and we’ve secured a block of discounted rooms at the AC Hotel in Downtown Portland, walking distance from the venue.
  7. You’ll come away from Dot All a better Craft developer. Whether it’s through building relationships with other Craft developers, answers to specific questions regarding Craft plugins and Craft 3, or a new way of looking at different development challenges, you’re sure to benefit from attending Dot All.

Tickets are available at Dot We hope to see you there!
