I was able to attend meshU yesterday, which is a one day event held in Toronto, Canada, that runs best practice and how-to workshops for designers, developers, project managers or anyone in the web technology industry.
During my day at meshU I was able to catch great presentations by Kevin Hale of Wufoo, Daniel Burka of Digg, Jon Lax of Teehan+Lax and John Resig of jQuery. I was intrigued by what each had to say during their workshop and I was able to take back something from each one. Especially Daniel Burka’s workshop on “Iterative Design Strategies” which hit on some design practices that I think every designer should try to adhere to, some of which I follow already. You can view the slides Daniel used in his presentation here. You can also download the slides used in Kevin Hale’s workshop, “How to Design for Love” here.
All in all, I had a great time at meshU. Met some really cool people and also got a free t-shirt with my logo on the front.
