Updated: Building Sitemason 6 at BarCamp Nashville Oct 20th
Update: My BarCamp session slides and notes are available at www.sitemason.com/barcamp
For the sixth consecutive year, Nashville is hosting BarCamp, the defining "un-conference" for our technology community. From their website, BarCamp is...
A free, technology-focused “unconference” that is equal parts networking, knowledge-building and fun.
This year, I have the distinct pleasure of presenting at BarCamp for the second time, the first being my 2010 session on Arduino. For the uninitiated, BarCamp is a casual yet often times intense day of learning, sharing, and meeting. Over the course of a single day, there are some 40+ sessions on everything from hardcore web development to business advice.
It's a lot like having a single day at Disney World; ultimately you have to decide which awesomely fun things you're going to miss. The difference is the encouragement of the "law of two feet"... which is not recommended atop Splash Mountain. More importantly though, it's an opportunity to meet great people and discover new opportunities.
This year, I'm presenting "Adventures In Building Our Dream Interface". That is likely of little surprise to our regular blog readers as I've been updating our Sitemason 6 progress here somewhat regularly. However in this session I'm going to focus on the process and technologies we've used to design and build the dang thing. I'll go over the primary process stages from inspiration to wireframing, and from design to build, highlighting specific tools and technologies employed along the way.
