UI Design Conferences
It’s my favorite time of the year! Only one more month to SXSW Interactive 2011.. It’s time for networking, sharing, exploring the cutting edge of user experience, design, new technologies, and so much more. Believe it or not it’s the conversations in the hall that can be the best part of SXSW 2011. Let’s take a look at some of my currently planned schedule and talk a little bit about the venue this year.
First off the panel picker was vastly improved and the design makes it a lost easier to sift through 1000+ panels. Now if the titles would just accurately depict what the panels are about the experience would be a bit more pleasant. There is a lot in a name, but some of these panels I really can’t make heads or tails about what the talks will be about.
Tomorrow kicks off the two day conference event here in Dallas. This will be the second year of the Big D Design Conference. A host of speakers and tracks are available covering several tracks on social media, social strategy, user experience design, and coding and development. This year also brings back the workshop track which is my personal favorite. The small crowd size allows for some really nice interaction with the entire group. I will also have several of my friends there so it looks to be a great time.
