Not content with having DeveloperDay twice a year at no cost there's now a new UK event, WebDD. Like DDD it's free, held on a Saturday at Microsoft, the 3rd of February to be precise.

This free conference features some rather stunning speakers including ASP.NET's very own Scott GuthrieDave Verwer of the Ruby world and two guys from Telerik, Hristo Deshev and Zhivko Dimitrov. Oh, and me. Again. (Yes, my name isn't spelt right on the speaker list yet, but frankly the idea of meeting Scott Guthrie overshadows that by a long shot! [edit] five minutes and it's fixed, heh.)

The blurb goes

"Standards. Design. Future. Three topics that are on everyone's wish list, but that often get left by the wayside as time rolls by. If you're interested in all three, then WebDD is for you.

WebDD is a new conference covering both design and development, with a focus on design standards, best practices, and emerging  and future technologies. There will be a variety of talks covering topics such as Accessibility, CSS, Standards, ASP.NET, and Ruby, with the aim of bringing developers and designers together to share ideas.

If these sound like the sort of topics you want to learn about then sign up. The best part - it's free and on a Saturday, so you don't even need to take a day off from work.

WebDD is not a Microsoft event but is organised by the web community for the web community with Microsoft as our premier sponsor."

The session list is up, you can see I'll be speaking on CardSpace (what was InfoCard), showing the architecture, how to integrate it into your own sites and discussing the new SSL certificate sites. Registration should be open in a couple of days, and like DDD I expect the spaces to go fast.
