Future Insights
“We’ve gathered the best insights from a decade of ground-breaking web technology conferences and put them to work for you,” the event website reads. “The Future Insights Live (#FILIVE) conference returns to Las Vegas for the third consecutive year, bringing you five days of the best in the world 
of web design, development and mobile, all covering future-focused subject matter. With a brand new updated format, we have once again combined all of our successful shows, Future of Web Design (FOWD), Future of Web Apps (FOWA) and Future of Mobile (FOM) to bring you a week of the most diverse session topics around. Our multi-track event means you always have a choice — you’re not locked into one room and one track. And we record every session for all attendees, so you’ll never miss a thing. There really is something for every member of your team. And as always, content is king!”
The line-up of speakers for the 2014 conference is impressive. See talks from Adam DuVander, Developer Communications Director for SendGrid, Daniel Hengeveld, a software developer at GitHub, and Vegas Tech’s own Jimmy Jacobson, co-founder at Wedgies.com.
Jimmy Jacobson“I’m going to be talking about how companies like Disqus, Twitter and Wedgies apply responsive design and engineering to more than just mobile layouts. I will be talking about how you can use 3rd party javascript, iframes and media queries to create a great embedded content experience for your users,” Jimmy Jacobson says.
He explains that the team at Future Insights Live wants to make this conference accessible to Vegas Tech companies.
“They have a great deal where we can buy tickets for a discount and multiple employees from that company can take turns using the pass,” he said.

“Future Insights Live is one of my favorite conferences,” Jimmy Jacobson explains. “It brings together an amazing group of designers and developers and you can always learn something from a speaker at any given moment. The event organizers are really great and also run Treehouse. I always leave this conference with a bunch of new friends I keep in contact with.”
