Registration is now open for the Third Annual Pachyderm Conference scheduled for September 22-24, 2008 in San Antonio, Texas!
The focus of the Pachyderm Conference was to bring together authors, developers, and others in an ongoing conversation about how to communicate effectively with digital media. The conference will provide a forum for beginners to learn from established experts, and for those with more advanced skills to exchange ideas and gather inspiration from their peers.
The theme of the Third Annual 2008 Pachyderm Conference was the power of story. Highlights will include final details about the next release of Pachyderm, which is imminent, as well as a special showcase of presentations that demonstrate the deep connection between story and audience.
