A Week of Web in Boston
November 8, 2007
I have been attending the UI12 Conference in Boston this week. I have been looking forward to this since last May when I signed up. I had attended the conference 2 years ago and it was really good.
I wish I had more time to process all that is being thrown at me. I would like to make a list of action points before I leave tomorrow so that I can begin to integrate this experience into my work.
Some of the highlights of the week:
- Getting to hang out with Andy Budd, one of my Web design superheroes. I met Andy last year at Refresh06. I have had several opportunities to chat with Andy during the conference.
- Communicating with Visual Design workshop taught by Luke Wroblewski. I also got a lot out of a seminar he did on Form Design. I look forward to his book on the subject which comes out in March. One of my action points is to read his other book, Site Seeing, which covers the material he went over in the workshop.
- Eating lunch with Cameron Moll. Yesterday, I got to eat lunch with Cameron Moll. I enjoyed getting to know him on a personal level. I took his workshop on Designing Elegant Interfaces with CSS. I wished we had covered a little more on design but he included things in the notes that were interesting including the process of his design of his portfolio.
I am looking forward to hearing more from Jared Spool this afternoon. Got to go.
