I’m analyzing the results of the latest ARBP survey (about REALbasic consultants) and I came across an interesting answer considering that the Colorado Summit is coming up next week. In one question we asked how REALbasic consultants found work. We had a set of canned answers with the option to add your own. Several RB consultants said in the ‘other’ response that they picked up work at Real World. Of course the numbers are pretty low, but the fact that people went out of their way on the survey to include it speaks volumes.
This answer isn’t surprising, really, since the last couple of Real World events had companies trolling for RB developers. To me, this has always been one of the best reasons to go to Real World. I know I turned down work at Real World 2008 because I was already 100% committed to a project already. Hopefully there will be a few at The Summit as well to make it profitable as well. 😮
There are still some slots available for the conference if you’re interested in going. Hope to see you in Boulder!
