Front-End Design Conference Presentation Notes
Well, Nate and I made it back from our trek to the sunny St. Petersburg, FL and the Front-End Design Conference where I was a speaker. Let me tell you right now; we both had a great time. Dan Denney (@webdesignfanboy) went all out for his first event and went out of his way to make us feel welcome. From the coffee cups with our cartoon characters printed on it to the swank afterparty, we felt like nerds just might rule the world. We also got to meet a ton of new people and twitter friends face to face; not to mention talk about the things like HTML and CSS without getting the “look.” If you don’t know what that means, you’re probably not married or in a relationship!
Several people requested that we post up the slides from the presentation, so I am doing just that. I spoke on “Why ExpressionEngine is Great for Designers,” and EE gave away 5 packages of various licenses and modules for free. Not to mention some t-shirts, field note pads and a mug. Pretty sweet, if you ask me!
I thought it would be useful to post up the links I used in the presentation as well, so here they are. The link to the full PDF of all the slides is down below.
Who’s Using ExpressionEngine?
Interestingly enough, news this morning indicates that Airbag and Happy Cog have merged. Here’s to hoping they keep making the EE goodness!
That’s it! If you were there I hope you enjoyed it, and if you weren’t I believe Nate got video of most of the presentations that he’s editing down right now. Look for links to those soon. Oh, and the presentation notes are below.
