Setting sail for Europe

~ 10 October 2006 ~

Tomorrow I embark on an all-night endeavor to travel overseas to London in preparation for “Designing Elegant CSS Interfaces”, a full day of training presented by Carson Workshops.

If “Essential Web Skills” was (possibly) the most effective presentation I’ve given to date, this one will easily be the most comprehensive, comprising 6+ hours of design, CSS, and user interface instruction spanning 420+ slides. Below are a few teasers from those slides.

And for those of you who can’t make it this time around, rest assured there are plans already in progress for bringing the workshop stateside and even possibly in virtual format. More on that later.

Finally, comments are turned off on all posts for the time being, as this site has been hit extremely hard with comment spam the last week or so. It literally rears its ugly head anew almost as soon as I delete it. Commenting will likely resume once I return.
