Attending O'Reilly's TOCCON Next Week? Deploy360 Will Be There…

Logo for O'Reilly's Tools of Change for Publishing ConferenceWill you be attending O’Reilly’s “Tools of Change for Publishing 2012” conference (a.k.a. “TOCCON”) in New York from February 13-15, 2012? If so, I (Dan York) will be there and would be delighted to connect with readers of this site. (Just drop me an email or ping me on Twitter.) Given the incredible changes happening within the world of publishing – both online and traditional – I’ll be down at TOCCON  looking at how we can best seize the opportunities presented by these changes to make our Deploy360 content available in even more formats and channels.  Additionally, a number of sessions are about the underlying technology we’re using (WordPress) or have relevance to the kind of platform we’re building – so I’ll be looking forward to picking up any tips and tricks that will help our site work even smoother and better.

If you aren’t familiar with TOCCON, it’s an annual event sponsored by O’Reilly, the well-known technical publisher, that brings together many of the people at the bleeding edge of the disruption happening within the world of content creation.  Here’s the quick intro from their site:

The acceleration of change and innovation in the publishing industry today is dizzying, and the pace can be overwhelming. But this change/forward/fast environment is also ripe with opportunity for those who embrace it and learn to adapt and innovate quickly.

O’Reilly’s TOC Conference is where the publishing and tech industries converge, as practitioners and executives from both camps share what they’ve learned from their successes and failures, explore ideas, and join together to navigate publishing’s ongoing transformation. TOC 2012 delivers a deft mix of the practical and the visionary to give attendees the tools and guidance they need to succeed—and the inspiration to lead change.

On a personal note, attending TOCCON will be a bit unusual for me. It’s the first time I can recall in many years when I am attending an event and not speaking, staffing a booth or reporting on the event (or, more typically, doing all three).   I’m just there to learn about the tools and technologies and to meet people involved… it will be a interesting change!  🙂
