In heads order: Jeremy Keith, Ethan Marcotte, Aarron Walter, Josh Clark, Jeffrey Zeldman, Thomas Lewis, Geri Coady (local designer), your truly, Suzannah Mejia (co-organizer), Isaac Mejia (co-organizer), and Levin Mejia (founder, and organizer).It was my first time in St-John’s, Newfoundland, and it was a great experience: this is a gorgeous place, and people are so friendly. It was also the first edition of Go Beyond Pixels conference, and I had the pleasure to be there, with my colleague Thomas Lewis.
Levin Mejia, the organizer of this event, asked me to talk about Windows 8, so I created a presentation that would be appealing for Web developers, but also for designers. Here are the slides of my presentation:
I must say that I had a great time, before, during, and after the conference. Levin was able to get industry leaders, but also give an opportunity to the Web people in Newfoundland to get together.
I also had the pleasure to go out for dinner with some of the most amazing Newfoundlander, and Ethan Marcotte:
It was a great success, and I hope I’ll have the chance to speak there again next year. Levin didn’t talk about a next edition, but with all the positive feedbacks he got, I’m pretty sure that he’s thinking about it, so people from elsewhere in Canada, and US, keep a closer look to the site, the travel worth the time, and the money!
