There’s a good range of excellent web events coming up shortly and I’m proud to announce it here (despite being a bit behind the foot, as these events have officially launched some time ago).
Website user experience & CSS workshop
The first is the Website user experience & CSS workshop run by my friends Donna Maurer and Russ Weakley. They are both experienced teachers and trainers – I attended one of Russ’ CSS workshops a few years ago and it was excellent and Donna is one of the most experienced Information Architects in the world.
This is a hands-on workshop where you will will learn to build detailed websites layouts from the ground up – starting with page layout, navigation and form design; and ending with clean markup and elegant styling using XHTML/CSS.
The workshops will be held in four cities:
- Canberra – Monday 31 March and Tuesday 1 April
- Melbourne – Thursday 3 April and Friday 4 April
- Sydney – Monday 28 April and Tuesday 29 April
- Brisbane – Thursday 1 May and Friday 2 May

Web Directions South Government
Brought to you by the same folks who run the excellent Web Directions conferences, Web Directions South Government (Gov08) will be held in Canberra on 19 and 20 May. Gov08 will be a full day two track conference, plus an optional extra day of workshops, focussing on the concepts, technologies and techniques for meeting the challenges of eGovernment.
The line-up of speakers look great. If the past Web Directions are anything to go by then this is sure to be yet another great conference.
