Tracking the tracks at Tech Ed New Zealand


Unofficial event: Design Is King

, posted: 30-Jul-2007 13:00

I just found out through Nigel's blog that Microsoft is sponsoring Design Is King, this month's Auckland Web User Group meetup.


This month we are focusing on design, and its going to rock. We are bringing these designers out of their shells and we were are going to talk about why design matters and wins awards. (us programmers know design awards dont matter)....

We have an excellent line up with our new format, there will be 6 speakers on the night talking about topics close to our hearts.

Dave Sparks - Sparks Interactive, sorted.org.nz redesign
Che Tamahori - Shift - AA redesign
Matthew Buchanan - Cactuslab - Typography on the web


Now, the event is currently full (limit of 130 people), but you can keep an eye on the official page if you want to attend it. Design Is King happens Thursday, 16 August (the day after Tech Ed New Zealand 2007).
