A Sign of Spring Appears as MinneWebCon 2011 Nears

minnewebconYou know we’re turning the corner when it’s time to start thinking about MinneWebCon again!

On April 11th, Minnesota’s fourth annual regional conference covering Web design and standards, content management and strategy, user experience, and social networking will take place at the University of Minnesota’s Continuing Education and Conference Center.

Largely a grassroots initiative produced by a core group of U of M staff & alumni, the gathering is a full day, three-track conference with a practical blend of technical and creative knowledge from industry practitioners and educators.   In addition to the educational value, attendees can anticipate a high concentration of graphic artists, UX and front-end developers to be present.

“I think you’ve got us pegged right, in that we favor the designer in our audience,” admits director Kristofer Layon. “And by that I mean web designers as generalists, who are passionate about both the art and the science of the web. The code as well as the visual and human experience.”
