What is DreamCon?

DreamCon is an intense series of lightning talks given by DreamHost employees designed to help you get the most out of your DreamHost experience! DreamCon will be hitting the road in 2014, stopping in Chicago, IL and Brooklyn, NY.

Whether you're a blogger, a hardcore software developer, WordPress nut, DreamObjects professional, an Internet entrepreneur, or anything in between, we guarantee that DreamCon's closing event will have something you'll want to see!

Not much for schoolin'? Not all of us are. We'd still love to treat you to drinks, appetizers, and stimulating conversation at our closing event whether or not you choose to come to the lightning talks!

If you don't live near Chicago or Brooklyn, don't worry! DreamCon will be back in 2015!

So...where's the tour kickoff?
