Conferences – The Relook

As of yet, I still haven’t been able to go to a conference. I had planned on going this year but sometimes life has a habit of changing plans. I’m subscribed to An Event Apart’s mailing list so I get emails every once and a while when they have an update on the conferences. Today, they sent out an email announcing the 2010 conference schedule. I looked at the schedule and thought maybe next year I can go to Boston or maybe they’ll be in a city that’s closer. And then I saw it. AN EVENT APART IS COMING TO DC!!!!!  I just need to save the duckets between now and when registration opens. I am so excited.

School is in session

In this field you can never stop learning so, in my Blackberry I’m keeping a list of all the training that I want to do. I recently found out that my department has an account with I want to move up the ranks and that will be an awesome resource. Some of the things that I’m thinking about are:

  • Color Theory/Basics of Design (I have one or two books at home that I need to re-read)
  • AJAX
  • Flash
  • JQuery
  • Moo Tools
  • Google Web Toolkit
  • XML
  • HTML5
  • Project Management (not indepth but some time management of projects)

So, it’s time to hit the proverbial books.
