‘Tis the season for industry events, fa-la-la…
I’m a few months early for South by Southwest, but before we get to that: WestCiv builds the popular StyleMaster CSS Editor and publishes the House of Style. WestCiv is hosting a series of workshops on CSS layout in Sydney, Australia in a few weeks. The first has sold out, and the second only has a few seats left. Anyone looking to sharpen their CSS skills who will be in the area on December 12th may want to book a seat, like, now. It would seem that the Zen Garden will be a focus; don’t let that fool you, I’m not taking a cut for plugging the workshop. WestCiv is a company that really gets it; that’s worth supporting.
The beginning of next year is looking mighty interesting. What I can tell you for sure is that somehow, some way, I’ll be finding myself in Austin in March for SXSW Interactive.
The Zen Garden has been entered in the Awards as a developer resource, since I can’t quite see it taking the ‘Humor’ or ‘Music’ prizes. Should I hedge our bets and enter it as an ‘Experimental’ site as well? Perhaps an ‘Art’ site? I’ve heard categorization of the awards has been a problem in the past; trying to lump a large enough site into one category is no easy task.
And if you go to the panel grid, you’ll see a ton of panels it will be hard to choose from, and a very impressive roster of panelists running down the right. Somehow, some way, I’ve managed to work myself onto that list (which will update any time now…), but I think I’ll leave precisely what and who I’ll be presenting with a surprise for now. It’s going to be a good one, provided I’m not completely overwhelmed by the amount of very cool people I’ll be meeting for the first time.
More coming as more develops. Three and a half months isn’t looking that far off.
