In my years in this field, I've had the opportunity to attend and speak at a variety of fantastic user-based conferences. Ùll, Çingleton, and Yosemite captured the essence of our community in a variety of events and non-code-based talks. I heard similar adoration about CocoaLove last year, and it's one of the reasons I'm so pleased to be speaking at this year's conference in Philadelphia, taking place Oct 9-11.

Not only will it be my first time in Philly, but I'm excited to have the chance to hang out and chat with a panoply of wonderful speakers, including Jaimee Newberry, Allen Pike, Jean MacDonald, Dave Wiskus, SiNae Pitts, and more. Some of these folks I've had the pleasure of chatting with many times before; others are new to me and I can't wait to hear what they have to say.

I'm going to be chatting about Twitter and the culture of "Give Me the Answer in 140 Characters or Less," and if you want to come see my talk—or any of the other phenomenal speakers on display—we have an iMore-specific discount code you can use to pick up a CocoaLove ticket!

Just enter in "imore" under the discount code for 10 percent off the three-day conference, which includes Friday evening talks, Saturday's day and after-party, and a Sunday Cheesesteak Lunch and Mini-Golf park excursion.

Looking forward to hopefully seeing some of you in October!
