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