Kimberly’s been hard at work finalizing details of the classes we’ll be offering in the first half of 2014 and we have 17 new classes open for registration, covering the whole range of courses we teach.

Where are we going?

We’re heading to Tampa, Chicago, and Bellevue in the US, plus Australia (see below) and we may schedule some additional classes in the US later in the year after October, but if we do, it’ll be in Chicago or Bellevue.

Why are you not coming to <insert my city> to teach a class? Well, there are some great reasons for where we’re going:

  • No matter where we teach, 80-90% of students are from somewhere else and travel to the class. There’s a huge benefit to being able to (mostly) disconnect from your life to really immerse yourself in learning.
  • We can’t go everywhere. For those of you who absolutely can’t travel, we have our online courses up on Pluralsight.
  • We’ve used the same great hotels in Tampa, Chicago, and Bellevue since 2011. We know them really well and they know us really well. With these locations we have the class setup and running down to a science, ensuring the smoothest possible experience while you’re learning.

Need Help Justifying Training?

Australia!

We’re also coming to Sydney (week of March 10th) and Melbourne (week of March 17th) with IE1 classes in March. We’re working on nailing down the details and we’ll let  you know as soon as we know. Please register interest for these classes through our schedule page and we’ll email you directly when the class details are sorted out. It’ll be 5 years since we taught in Australia last and we’re *really* looking forward to coming back.

Australia will be the only place we take our classes outside of the US in 2014 – as I mentioned back in June, we will not be coming back to London until 2015 or 2016.

Special pricing for past attendees!

All our classes are available to past attendees at 75% of the full price, which is 10% more of a discount than the early-bird prices. Send us an email for details of the discount code to use.

First five registrants in 2013 get an additional seat for free!

For all IE0, IE4, IEHW, IETS, IEDEV, and IEBI classes, the first five people to register at the early-bird price  in 2013 will get to bring a colleague or friend to the class for free. If you want a free seat, go sign up!
