Ten years ago, two of my biggest fears were: flying and public speaking. I’ve done enough of both (usually combined) over the last several years to where I’m now OK with either. At times even comfortable with it. I’ll probably always get nervous right before a talk — but the anxiety has shifted from, “crap, how am I going to get through this” to, “I want this to be good. I don’t want to let anyone down”.
With that confession out of the way, the next year is filling up with some great events, and I thought I’d list them here:
- Future of Web Design NYC — November 17th, 2009. I’ll be talking about “Progressive Enrichment with CSS3“. (Get 15% off the conference pass with promo code SPEAKER)
- Carson Workshops presents Handcrafted CSS — November 23rd, 2009. Join Ethan Marcotte and I in London, as we present our book in a unique, one day event. Space is limited! (Get 15% off the workshop ticket price using promo code CWDC)
- An Event Apart Seattle — April 5-7, 2010. I’ll also be splitting a full-day seminar with Jeremy Keith after the conference proper. I’ll cover CSS3, while Mr. Keith covers all things HTML5. It will be most excellent.
Ethan and I are also looking for other unique cities to bring the Handcrafted CSS event to. Have an idea, or know of an event that needs a full-day course that covers CSS3, fluid grids, bulletproof design and more? We’d love to hear about it (in the comments on this post).
