Summer of Web 2008

I’ll be in Florida baking in the warm weather and humidity of August as part of the Summer of Web 2008 at the Unversity of Florida. More information comes from their official Web site:

Summer of Web 2008 is a half-day conference created to bring the UF Web community together and back to Web basics. Food and drinks will be provided, and there will be several prize drawings.

Summer of Web’s full intent is to bring speakers, both internal and external, to discuss the daily issues seen across the Web community. Topics will include the Print to Web initiative, effective writing for the Web, evaluating analytics and the importance of Web standards.

Speakers will come from a variety of Web backgrounds including consultants, developers, instructors and communications specialists. Among the speakers are Web professional and Gator alumnus Carl Smith and other members of the nGen Works team, UF’s associate vice president for marketing and public relations, Joe Hice, instructional designer Jennifer Smith, and expert CSS developer and author Christopher Schmitt.

When & Where?

The event will be on August 8th, from 8:30 a.m. to noon at the Emerson Alumni Hall Teaching Classroom.

This event is for University of Florida Web professionals of all types. If you are someone who writes content, moves pixels, develops Web applications or falls anywhere in between, you’re welcome to attend — just make sure you RSVP as spaces are limited.
