From July 8th to 11th 2015, I was away from the office to attend a conference. The office was in shambles without me (or so I'd like to think) but I did return and everything is back to normal.
I went to the conference in Washington state, just south of us, to fill holes in my developer skills as well as meet more like minded people. I did both very successfully (six new Facebook friends! OMG). I wanted to share a bit of my experience; the conference was CascadiaJS 2015 and it was, to date, the best conference I've ever attended.
