I’ve worked in the software industry for almost 16 years, and for 15 of those years, I worked on games. I’ve been to a lot of conferences over the years: E3, GDC, and Gamefest.
But the conference I’m most interested in attending is the Woodworking in America conference, this October in Cincinnati. If you’re a woodworker, hobbiest or professional, this is the conference for you.
From the website:
Immerse yourself in a weekend of woodworking packed with non-stop demonstrations, evening social activities (dinners, pub crawls) and a behind-the-scenes visit to an unrestored Shaker Village.
Learn skills directly from today’s top craftsmen – dovetails, inlay, handplanes, tablesaw techniques and much more– in more than 40 different classes.
Browse our unparalled Marketplace with top hand- and power-tool exhibitors– many of which you won’t find at any other show: Lee Valley, General International, Lie-Nielsen, Woodcraft and more, plus custom toolmakers including Sauer & Steiner, Eccentric Toolworks, Medallion Toolworks, and many more.
