Upcoming Presentations – May thru July 2008

Jared Spool

April 28th, 2008

My late spring / early summer isn’t as busy as the first 4 months of this year, but I’m still getting out and about. Here’s where we can meet up:

May 2008

May 5-6, Chicago

Web Design World/Chicago
Web 2.0: The Power Behind the Hype – 5/5 10:15-11:15am
Enhancing Experiences with AJAX, RIAs, and Browser-Side Intelligence – 5/6 2:00-4:15pm
Deconstructing… You! (with Jim Heid and Lance Loveday) – 5/6 – 4:30-5:30pm

I don’t get to Chicago too often, so this is going to be fun. Let me know if you’d like connect up while I’m there.

May 28, Boston

UPA-Boston’s Seventh Annual Mini UPA Conference
Web Apps: The Collision of Design and Business – 5/28 9:15-10:00am

The Boston UPA Chapter does an amazing job putting together a nice program for a great price: $135 ($75 if you’re a student) I’ve found the presentations here to be as good as those I see at conferences that cost four times or more.

June 2008

June 4, Philadephia

STC’s 2008 Technical Communication Summit
What Makes A Design Seem Intuitive? – 6/4 10:30-11:30am

Keynotes at this conference by Howard Rheingold and Richard Saul Wurman make it very attractive.

June 16-20, Baltimore

UPA 2008

I haven’t spoken at this conference since 2001 for reasons that nobody seems to know. However, I’ve been known to show up on occasion. Could happen this year. Stranger things have happened.

June 23-24, Boston

An Event Apart – Boston
Scent of a Web Page – 6/23 5:00-6:00pm

My second time speaking at An Event Apart, the conference put on my Jeffrey Zeldman and Eric Meyer. This is a great gathering of the some of the brightest minds in the design world. (And me.)

July 2008

July 15-16, Philadelphia

Higher Education Web Symposium – University of Pennsylvania
Cooking Up Gourmet User Experiences on a Fast-Food Budget – 7/16 9:00-10:15a

I’ll be presenting the keynote after full day workshops from Steve Mulder and Ricardo LaRosa (AJAX & Web 2.0), Eric Meyer & Stephanie Sullivan (CSS Tips & Techniques), Luke Wroblewski (Web Form Design Best Practices), and Usability Testing (Dana Chisnell). $299 gets you a full day workshop and the second day of great sessions. (As of last week, they were almost sold out.)

July 19-20, Boston

Podcamp Boston

I’ve gone to the last two podcamps and had a blast. I expect I’ll do something here again, at least on the 19th. (I have to fly to Seattle on the 20th.)

July 21-23, Seattle

Web Design World/Seattle
Web 2.0: The Power Behind the Hype – 5/5 10:15-11:15am
Enhancing Experiences with AJAX, RIAs, and Browser-Side Intelligence – 5/6 2:00-4:15pm

They are still nailing down the program, but this is what it looks like now. I expect I’ll be doing an evening presentation or get together while I’m here.
