I've just spent three days at the ACCU 2011 Conference in Oxford. I saw talks on move semantics in C++ 0x, quantum computing, Git, Metacircularity in Lisp, CPU caching and the Last Computer Language, all given by superb speakers. There were hundreds of other people there who like writing code and the food was good. And I've never seen a dull talk by Scott Meyers.
It was fun and I learned a lot. If you get a chance to go next year I recommend you take it.
