I had the privilege yesterday to attend MinneWebCon 2009 (external link), a conference for web developers held at the University of Minnesota in the Twin Cities. MinneWebCon was my first web-development conference and I quite liked it! Most of the speakers seemed to be from the Twin-Cities area and most of the attendees worked for the University. Nonetheless, the sessions were informative and interesting, particularly the two keynotes.
You can read about the conference's presentations on the MinneWebCon website (external link). Presumably, some of the slide shows will become available there. I have found links to a few of them already:
- UX for Community Building (external link) by Jason Sack
- It's the Little Things (external link) by Paul Armstrong
- Standardising Web User Interfaces (external link) by Zach Johnson
- jQuery Essentials (external link) by Marc Grabanski
With the growth of Twitter in the last few years, it might also be interesting to take a look at the tweets made during the conference (external link). It was certainly interesting and fun following Twitter during the conference itself. I even picked up a few new followers to my Twitter account!
Overall, the conference was fantastic and I hope that I get to attend next year! I would recommend attending MinneWebCon to any web developers who live in Minnesota!
