geekwirecalendarHopefully you’re gearing up for UFO Fest and Animation Fest coming up this weekend that we mentioned in the last Calendar Picks. When you’re fully recovered from that, get ready for a week of seminars and conventions. Be sure to check out the GeekWire Calendar, and continue reading for our picks from what’s coming up next week:

Authentic Selling – Growing Your Business When You THINK You Hate Sales: Seattle: Tuesday, 5/21 5:30pm. This seems like a common issue for a lot of startups. You have the idea, you have the passion, but how do you channel that passion into sales? This seminar hosted by NWEN and headed by Elizabeth Case of Yellow Dog Consulting will empower you!

webvisionsWebVisions: Portland: Wednesday, 5/22 – Friday, 5/24 All day. This convention is bringing together the triforce – programmers, designers and strategists to focus on the new ideas that are revolutionizing the business world. Looks like a great networking event with cool guest speakers.

Girl Develop It: Seattle: Wednesday, 5/22 7pm. VERY COOL! This is for the ladies (and gents) looking to expand out of basic WordPress stuff into beginning HTML and CSS. For peeps who want to build their own websites and need a little help! This is the first of four classes.

CrypticonBannerSqCrypticon Seattle: Friday, 5/24 – Sunday, 5/26 All day. The one and only CRYPTICON is here next weekend! Get ready to get spooked, y’all. All I have to say is “Elvira”.
