Early Bird Discounts End May 1, 2006
March 15, 2006. Monterey, CA. RevCentral and Runtime Revolution Ltd, announced plans for the largest gathering of Revolution users and developers to be held in Monterey, California from June 17-18. This marks the third consecutive year that RevCentral has hosted this event. Runtime Revolution, Ltd is co-sponsoring the event.
In 2005, Revolutionaries converged on Monterey and enjoyed a two-day gathering that drew nearly unanimous rave reviews. This year's conference is expected to double the size of the 2005 event and will include two brand-new features.
RevCon West 2006 will be held June 16-17 at the Monterey Conference Center. Confirmed speakers include Trevor DeVore, Richard Gaskin, Ken Ray, Scott Rossi, Jan Schenkel, Dan Shafer, and Chipp Walters. CEO Kevin Miller and CTO Mark Waddingham of Runtime Revolution will also attend. The speaker schedule will be updated over the coming weeks.
"RevCon West 2005 was a delightful and educational experience for anyone interested in developing rich media projects, network solutions and cross-platform applications for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X," said Kevin Miller, CEO of Runtime Revolution, Ltd, "we are looking forward to being a part of RevCon West 2006 in sunny Monterey."
Every attendee will also receive a free license of Revolution Media, a feature rich tool for creating interactive media and software utilities. Right out of the box it includes templates for creating kiosks, presentations, adventure games, portfolios and more.
A new optional third day event will also be held at the Monterey Conference Center. That post-conference gathering will feature in-depth technical discussions of major topics of interest to Revolution developers, a "coding kitchen" in which attendees will be able to work on their projects with ready access to several top Revolutionary developers. An advanced technology brief is also planned.
Also new this year will be a pre-conference tutorial workshop designed for newcomers to Revolution and Revolution Media. The tutorial will be held on Wednesday and Thursday, June 14-15, also at the Monterey Conference Center, The first day will focus on how to design and build Revolution applications and the second day will be devoted to learning the Revolution scripting language.
