I hope I can make this! From the facebook event link, I found: Chicago Interactive Design/Development Meetup Group. So interesting!

If you are developer in the midwest you might be interested in checking out the upcoming SocialDevCampChicago. SocialDevCampChicago is an unconference for people passionate about social networks, web applications, platform development, new media, and any of the exciting (but messy) topics in-between. This event promises to be a packed day of sharing, learning, coding, and relationship building with thought leaders in the social web landscape! (source: TechCocktail)
