Unlike a computer running like new, a computer running like old can suffer from lagging RAM, chronic power-supply pain, and nostalgic talk about typewriters. Learn the ins and outs of the new generation with today's Groupon to Web 2.0 Expo San Francisco, held in Moscone West at the Moscone Center. The Expo runs Monday, March 28–Thursday, March 31. Choose between two options:
- For $249, you get a workshop-only pass (an $895 value).
- For $99, you get a Web 2.0 Lite pass (a $350 value).
Web 2.0 shines light into cyberspace with a multitrack educational convention of ideas, concepts, and configurations. A host of workshops and conversational learning sessions unveil new innovations and design strategies, and networking events allow convention-goers to rub elbows and positively charged balloons with industry superstars. The Web 2.0 Lite pass grants access to the event Tuesday, March 29–Thursday, March 31. The Lite pass presents a slim spread of activities such as a choice of one track session, a choice of one conversation, personal audio for all keynote speakers, access to evening events, and Tuesday–Wednesday access to the Expo Hall.
Snag the workshop-only pass ($895 value), which grants access to all keynotes, conversations, evening events, and the Expo Hall held Tuesday–Thursday, with additional access to workshops held on Monday, March 28. Slay the latest in Facebook apps, exercise the brain's prowess in problem solving, or practice the fine art of computer-cord basket weaving.
Web 2.0 spontaneously manifested from the concentrated powers of Internet enthusiasts including bundle, Microsoft, and Rackspace Hosting. Discuss social media with an entrepreneur, receive critiques on a global commerce plan from a seasoned developer, or study the secret handshakes of savvy venture capitalists.
Customers must be 18 years or older to enter the Expo Hall. Though Web 2.0 Expo San Francisco sometimes offers discounts to various user groups, this Groupon still represents the best deal available to most customers.
