Upcoming Speaking Gigs at @media on June 16th and WebVisions on July 21st

I’m excited to be speaking at two great conferences this summer. On June 16th I’ll be speaking at the @media 2006 conference in London, and on July 21st I’ll be making a return to the WebVisions conference in Portland, Oregon. If you’re not already planning to attend, allow me to extend an invitation to both events. If you will be there, please shoot me a message [nate at koechley dot com] or drop a comment.

I’m preparing a unique talk for each conference, so you’ll have to come to both to hear it all. I’m wearing my Developer hat in London, and my Designer hat in Portland. For the more technical talk, I will discuss DHTML and Ajax best practices under the title Yahoo! vs. Yahoo!. Three cutting-edge Yahoo! products will be case studies as I share best practices and highlight the importance of weighing key application attributes when you make technical architecture decisions. In Portland I will discuss Usability for Rich Internet Applications. I’ll be describing and sharing communication instruments and toolkits that have proved helpful to us as we strive to bring desktop richness online.

Both these events are top notch, and I’m humbled to be a part of them. WebVisions is the perfect blend of design, technology and business, attracts an amazing and varied array of speakers and attendees, and in its sixth year is firing on all cylinders. I missed last year, and am happy to be back (plus, Portland is georgeous in the summer). @media is only in its second year but already the premier web design conference in Europe. When I look at the design and development books on my desk, nearly all the authors will be presenting during @media’s two packed days.

Here’s a bit more information on each of the conferences:

WebVisions

WebVisions explores the future of design, content creation, user experience and business strategy to uncover the trends and agents of change that will shatter your assumptions about the Web. Be ready to network, share ideas and be inspired by an all-star lineup of speakers.

Over the past six years, we’ve built a loyal audience of designers, developers and industry leaders. I invite you to join us for an event that’s seen as “the creative conference for the Web.”

@media 2006

The @media conference returns to London on 15th-16th June, bigger and better than before. It’s the event of the year for anyone interested in learning about and discussing the latest approaches to web design with some of the world’s most highly respected experts.

See you there!
