Meet Me in Tampa Florida for the Front-End Design Conference

Are you looking for an excuse to get away this summer? If so, meet me and several other popular bloggers in sunny Tampa, Florida, July 31, 2009 for the Front-End Design Conference. The Front-End Design Conference is a single-day event that is focused on content, presentation, and behavior.

Speakers at this year’s event will include; Myself (@Colorburned), Fabio Sasso (@abduzeedo), Chris Coyier (@chriscoyier), Jonathan Longnecker (@necker47), Andrew Maier (@andrewmaier), Kevin Hale (@wufoo), John Ashenden (@ashenden). The topics covered will be as varied as the speakers themselves.

Fabio Sasso from Abduzeedo will cover design inspiration and the influence of the Brazilian culture on his designs. Chris Coyier from CSS-Tricks will talk about using jQuery to pick up where CSS leaves off. Jonathan Longnecker from Forty Seven Media will explain why ExpressionEngine is great for designers. Andrew Maier from UX Booth will talk about affordances in modern web design. Kevin Hale from WUFOO will explain  how to design web apps people love. John Ashenden from Groove Shark will explain customizing key elements in your designs. And I will explain best practices for creating and using design resources in your projects.

Early registration is now available until July 1st for just $99! This event is an exciting opportunity to meet some of the top design bloggers out there and maybe even get some sun at the same time. To learn more about the Front-End Design Conference visit their website or follow them on Twitter.
