Lehi, UT (PRWEB) April 8, 2008
Organizers for the e-learning developers conference, eLearning DevCon announced today that the 2008 event will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, at the University of Utah Campus on July 14-16.
"eLearning DevCon has a reputation for being a no-fluff conference where you go to learn how to get your job done as an e-learning developer, instructional designer, manager or executive," says Garin Hess, Executive Director. "So holding the conference at a university location is the perfect setting and has been a hallmark of the conference experience for the past four years."
eLearning DevCon was first held in 2004 and has been awarded a four star rating by Training Media Review -- the highest rating possible.
"We organized the conference with three rules in mind. No fluff, no high prices, and a focus on development," says Steve Hancock, Assistant Director. "We are e-learning developers ourselves and we started eLearning DevCon because we looked around and asked ourselves, 'What kind of conference would we want to attend?'
According to conference organizers that question was the birth of what makes eLearning DevCon so different, and what has caused attendance to grow every year over the last four years. Most conferences focus on a big vendor trade show and offer mostly introductory classes.
"We wanted to go beyond introductory topics, so there are topics for every skill level, not just beginners," says Hess. "We also wanted to make the conference affordable to attend. We keep our costs low, but the content quality high."
Affordable is right. At $849 for a full conference pass that includes all meals, eLearning DevCon is almost half the cost of many other industry conferences. To make it even more affordable, conference organizers are currently offering an early bird discount of $100 off for participants who register by April 11.
This year's program will feature over thirty-five presenters delivering more than 70 different topics, including e-learning technologies such as Captivate, Flashform, Articulate, Flash, Unison, Actionscript, organized in the following categories:
- Authoring tools
- Supporting development tools

- Scripting and programming
- Web 2.0 / Learning 2.0
