Excellent upcoming events

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

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.
