I'm sorry in advance I'm being lame and spamming your forum.
But I just wanted to let the Software Niagara community know about Embrace UX.
It's a user experience conference happening in Hamilton on February 28th - March 1st. We've got an amazing line-up of speakers coming from around Southern Ontario. The scale and level of the work these guys are doing is excellent. It's only $60, we're rolling any "profit" into next year's conference, and comparable UX conferences in Toronto and Waterloo go for $295-$495, so it's also a very good value.
Details are here:
I hope all is well in the Niagara-region!
