    Valiocon! Because it's near my home, is always fun and it has the right balance of speakers. Drew Wilson focusses on bringing in speakers who are currently doing stuff, rather than just talking about doing stuff. I've been to other large and well-known confs and been underwhelmed. Many speakers recycle the same content that you could typically find right on their blog or Twitter account. I've been to 3 or 4 Valiocons and never felt that way about any of the speakers. Good stuff!
