Web Directions North – SXSW in Vancouver?

Web Directions NorthI’ve been overdue in posting about the upcoming Web Directions North coming to Vancouver February 6-10th, but 2007 is upon us and it’s just around the corner and I’m getting really excited. The combination of amazing speakers, fantastic location, and after-hours events will make Web Directions North about as good as a conference can be. But the connections and friendships that you build there are what will make it even better. Here’s the deal…

* WDN is a tier-1 web design and development conference that is going to be here in Van and attract the who’s who of the UI, UX, and design worlds. It’s gonna be all our peeps who usually we only get to see at SXSW (i.e. ‘internet spring break‘) but here in Vancouver.

* Topics include Ajax and Javascript, CSS, Microformats, mashups, standards based web design and development, accessibility, web app development, XHTML and HTML and more.

* WDN is put on by Dave Shea, Derek Featherstone, Maxine Sherrin and John Allsopp. These guys are awesome collegues, mentors, and friends.

* People like Cameron Moll, George Oates, Kelly Goto, Andy Clarke, Adrian Holovaty, Douglas Bowman, Dan Cederholm, Joe Clark, Molly Holzschlag, Derek Featherstone, Veerle Pieters, Jeremy Keith will be in town presenting and training.

* There are 2 days of skiing and snowboarding up at Whistler planned for the event. That’s what I’m talking about. Everyone is gonna wanna move here after their visit!

I’ll be there for the event and the snowboarding and hopefully I’ll lots of you there as well. 🙂
