In the latest Boagworld podcast there’s a great interview with Andy Budd off of ClearLeft. Towards the end of the interview Andy talked about the benefit of training in improving personal skills. I’m a advocate of on going personal development and see real benefit in knowledge sharing within an organisation as well as attending training courses/workshops and conference.
Luckily Redweb sees the benefit too. In the last couple of years I’ve been gained a lot from this and have been able to attend several conferences, including Clearleft’s Deconstruct back in 2007, and training courses such as HFIs accredited Usability course (CUA).
Thankfully this year’s no exception and I’m already booked to attend some great events in 2009.
Future of Web Apps 2009 – Dublin
On 6 March 2009 along with David Burton, Head of Innovation at Redweb, I’ll be heading out to Dublin for this years FOWA conference.
There seems to be a pretty good line up of speakers already and it should be a good event. I haven’t been to a Carsonified event before so hopefully this won’t disappoint.
This is the first of its kind and another great looking event thanks to Clearleft. Deconstruct is possibly the best conference I’ve been to so I’m really looking forward to UX London, if it’s half as good as Deconstruct it’ll still be worth it. Having said that with the likes of Don Norman, Jared Spool and Leisa Reichelt confirmed as speakers I can’t see how it can fail.
“UX London is a unique three-day event combining inspirational talks with in-depth workshops presented by some of the industry’s biggest names.”
