Right - it’s time for the seemingly obligatory post that all good bloggers have to do when they’re off to a conference - the one where they boast about going off to it. So, here goes - I’m off to @media 2006!
Seeing as how I live in London anyway though, I won’t be making the long arduous journey from Silicon Valley or deepest,
darkest lightest Sweden. Instead, I’ll be getting on the same train I catch every morning for work before making a single changes to get to the Conference centre. It’s going to take me less time than it does to get to work on a normal day, which is nice.
So, what sessions am I going to be attending? After lots of wrangling with the other chap at the office who’s going as well, we finally came up with a schedule which allowed us to attend everything between us and kept us both happy. Here’s what I’m going to:
- 09:15 - Keynote Presentation
- 10:45 - Using DOM Scripting to Plug the Holes in CSS
- 12:00 - IE: 7 and Beyond
- 14:00 - The New Accessibility Guidelines: WCAG 2.0
- 15:30 - Designing the Next Generation of Web Apps
- 09:00 - Bulletproof Web Design
- 10:30 - Beyond a Code Audit
- 11:45 - Internationalisation: Awakening The Sleeping Giant
- 13:45 - Yahoo! vs. Yahoo! vs. Yahoo!
- 15:00 - Microformats: Evolving the Web
- 16:30 - Hot Topics
I’m really looking forward to the conference and getting to meet so many great developers. Hopefully, I’ll even be able to give a couple of greats my card, which arrived yesterday. I’m really quite pleased with how it came out in the end.
Oh, and whilst I’m talking about my card - does anyone want to own up to buying me Angel Season 1 off my Amazon Wishlist? It looks like someone’s bought it for me, but I’ve had no email from amazon telling me this. I’m a little confused. So, if it was you, I owe you a business card. Lucky you!
Anyways, I hope all your travels to London go well. It looks like you’ve missed the sun now - that disappeared yesterday with glorious downpours, and it’s still a bit overcast now. Apparently it’s all heating up again for Thursday and Friday though, so I hope the conference centre is as nicely air conditioned as my offices are.
I’ll be at the pre-conference get together this evening, so I look forward to seeing those of you who are able to make it. The rest of you - see you on Thursday!
If you really enjoyed what you just read, why not buy yourself something from Amazon? You get something nice for yourself, and I get a little bit of commission to pay for servers and the like. Everyone's a winner!
