The Voices That Matter: Web Design Conference is taking place in June, and I have a pair of tickets worth $1,390 to give to one lucky reader.
A short conference blurb
New Riders’ Voices That Matter: Web Design Conference, now in its fourth consecutive year, will take place June 28-29 in San Francisco and is well-timed to coincide with the evolving functionality in the HTML5 and CSS3 specs, the number of new ways in which people access the Web, and the rise of social media.
It’s an opportunity to discuss web design’s most critical topics with industry experts. The event will open with a keynote address from Jesse James Garrett, author of The Elements of User Experience: User-Centered Design for the Web and close with an address by Steve Krug, author of the well-known book Don’t Make Me Think and the brand new Rocket Surgery Made Easy: The Do-It-Yourself Guide to Finding and Fixing Usability Problems.
There are plenty more talented speakers completing the line-up, including Paul Adams, senior user experience researcher at Google, Dan Cederholm of SimpleBits, and Robert Hoekman Jr., author of Designing the Obvious: A Common Sense Approach to Web Application Design.
28-29 June 2010
Your tickets include admission for two to all education and networking sessions, continental breakfast, lunch and breaks, a conference guide, and access to speakers’ slides.
How to win
Leave a comment (or send an email) with a link to a photo that makes you smile. Add any text you think is appropriate, too, and keep the photos clean, because I might republish them here on the blog, linking back to your website in the process (if that’s okay with you).
I’ll draw a winner on Wednesday 28th April, updating this post and contacting the person by email.
Update: 28 April 2010
Corrie Haffly is the randomly drawn winner, and I’ve sent her an email with details.
Congrats, Corrie! Thanks very much to everyone who entered.
(With thanks to David the designer for the idea.)
If you don’t win, and as someone who reads this blog, you can save $150 off the conference fee by entering priority code WBNBLGA when registering. Register before May 14th and you also get the “early bird” price saving.
