Greetings from Boston. David Sleight here, Deputy Creative Director for BusinessWeek.com. Over the next two days I’ll be attending An Event Apart, spending time with other designers and developers about a topic near and dear to my heart: Web Design. (“Web standards and emerging best practices,” specifically.)
Typically, the topics covered at An Event Apart hover somewhere between high level design theory and nuts-and-bolts technical sessions, without being too much of either. The speaker roster looks to make this a good one (including the likes of Jeffrey Zeldman, Eric Meyer, Jeff Veen, and Google’s Doug Bowman), so be sure to stayed tuned to this space for coverage as things unfold.
What comes next? The Bloomberg Businessweek Innovation and Design blog chronicles new tools for creativity and collaboration, innovation case studies in both the corporate and social sectors, and the new ideas that have the power to change the way things have always been done.
