D2W is the designer/developer/workflow conference held in Kansas City, MO. This year, it is taking place at the Crowne Plaza hotel on Friday July 15th and Saturday the 16th, following a preconferece workshop day.
What attracted me to this event was its unique focus on workflow across design and development areas. I am not aware of any other conference that claims such a focus, and considering workflow is something we designers and developers deal with every day (whether we realize it or not), happens to be an excellent opportunity to really concentrate on the issues involved in this work. Bringing both designers and developers (and hybrids!) together to talk about workflow is such a compelling idea!
I’ll be presenting a session called Adapting Expectations to Fit a Mobile Workflow at 10:55 on day one as part of the mobile track. I’m scheduled at the same time as Michelle Yaiser and David Ortinau… would have liked to hear either of them speak! Ah, well…
Sounds like a great conference, right? Ping me on Twitter for a discount code!
