Come to An Event Apart in 2019


The 2019 season for An Event Apart (the premiere web and interaction design conference) is about to kick off!

  1. Seattle – March 4–6, 2019
  2. Boston – May 6–8, 2019
  3. Washington DC – July 29–31, 2019
  4. Chicago – August 26–28, 2019
  5. Denver – October 28–30, 2019
  6. San Francisco – December 9–11, 2019

I’ll be there in Seattle for the kickoff, giving a talk about how to think like a front-end developer. I’ve been working on it for ages, and I think I have a talk ready that helps set the stage for where we are at in the world of front-end development, through the lens of tons of other front-end developers I admire in this industry. I hope it’ll be an entertaining romp through all their minds and how they think.

Just check out this Seattle lineup!
