d.Construct 2007 is go! | May 21, 2007
If you haven’t already heard, we quietly launched the d.Construct 2007 website last week. Because this year’s theme is “Designing the User Experience”, we thought it would be fun to mimic the user experience process and evolve the site over time. The site is currently in its wireframe stage, and will slowly progress as the event approaches.
I’m really excited about this year’s event as we’ve got an amazing line-up of speakers from the world of usability, information architecture and design. These include the likes of Cameron Moll, Tom Coates, Peter Merholz and Jared Spool.
Sessions will range from practical talks dealing with agile design methodologies, and UX techniques, through to philosophical musings on the personality of tech products. We’re also planing to run two days of workshops at the start of the event, so you can learn Microformats from Tantek Celik, or Interaction design from Peter Merholz. What’s more, booking any of these workshops will guarantee your place at d.Construct, before the conference tickets have even gone on sale.
Because d.Construct is a community event, I hope you’ll help us build up buzz and get the word out there. To help, we’ve created a series of snazzy buttons you can put on your site. You can even mod them yourself if you’d like.
I’m really looking forward to seeing you all at d.Construct this year, so keep an eye on this site and the event RSS feed for more announcements soon.
