Those of you in the Boston area might be interested in a talk I’m giving at the Macromedia Boston User Group meeting on Wednesday, 12 October 2005:
From Comp To Code: Pulling A List Apart Together
You’re handed a graphic comp file and told to make it into a living, breathing web page. Now what? How do you figure out what approach to take, which techniques to use, and what kinds of markup will go into the final page? Eric gives us a fast-paced tour of his decision-making process as he tackled the new design for A List Apart– how he analyzed the requirements, the questions he had to ask, the trade-offs he made, and the reasons behind his decisions.
If you’re interested, then please join us from 7:00pm – 9:00pm in E51-151 (Tang Center) on the MIT campus. According to the meeting organizer, arriving early is recommended.
If you do decide to drop by, I’m sorry to say that you won’t be the first to hear this presentation: that honor, if we can call it that, will go to the attendees of Web Essentials 05. On the other hand, you’ll be getting a more detailed version of the talk, since at WE05 I only have 45 minutes.
On the third hand, could it be that both groups will be getting a sneak preview of just one of the topics to be discussed as part of An Event Apart Philadelphia?
