There’s the World Tour, which is exciting and all that, but then there’s the fun of hometown gigs. It just so happens that I have two coming up in the near future. Here they are, along with some brief information on what I’ll be talking about.
Conference dates: 8-10 April 2005. Both my talks will be the morning of Saturday, 9 April.
- The Construction of S5; or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the DOM — a look at where S5 started, why it grew, how its growth was accomplished, what kinds of design decisions had to be made, and where it’s headed in the future.
- Humanely Wielding a Clue By Four: Reflections on Managing a Massive Mailing List — a look back at three-plus years of managing css-discuss, this will be an unvarnished peek into the life of a list administrator who actually cares about the list.
Metting date: Tuesday, 24 May 2005.
- Rapid UI Prototyping and Easy A/B Usability Testing with CSS — an updated version of the short talk Molly Holzschlag and I gave last year at User Interface 9, this will look at ways to use CSS and standards-oriented design to quickly develop UI designs and to do comparison testing of different designs.
Neither event is free, but then, neither event is terribly expensive, either. So come on down! They should be a peck o’ fun.
I’m also speaking at the NASA Glenn Research Center this afternoon, but that’s an internal gathering, not a public event, which is why I didn’t mention it before. I haven’t been there since the late 1980s, so it’ll be interesting to see if anything’s really different.
