#DevLearn 2013 Conference Backchannel: Curated Resources


This post collects the resources shared via the backchannel of the 2013 DevLearn Conference and Expo, being held October 23-25 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

I am a huge proponent of backchannel learning. There are many conferences I would love to be able to attend, but most people can only accommodate one or two each year. The backchannel is an excellent resource for learning from a conference or event, even if you are unable to attend in-person.

I find curating and reviewing backchannel resources to be a valuable learning experience for me, even when I am attending a conference in person. Sharing these collections on this blog has shown that others find value in the collections as well.
