Yet another great sounding conference is headed to Atlanta. This one is WebVisions and it explores the future of the Web and mobile design, technology, user experience and business strategy. After 11 years in Portland, the show is bringing its Indie/DIY/Maker vibe to Atlanta with presentations, studio tours and more. Unlike other conferences, WebVisions’ all-star lineup of visionary speakers stake out the future of web and mobile, while offering practical tips that can be incorporated into today’s projects.
I want to specifically call out a great event that is part of WebVisions and that is the Mobile Hackathon for Good. This is an opportunity to learn about Windows Phone app development and design, then use those skills to help out a good cause to boot! The free hackathon offers 1/2 day of instruction from several local WP7 experts, followed by an afternoon of building applications for great local organizations like Hands On Atlanta and other non-profits to help them advance their causes. At the end of the hackathon there will be reviews of the apps and prizes to be won.
Sign up today to participate in the hackathon, and you can even get a discounted day 2 ticket for WebVisions! Sign up at http://www.webvisionsevent.com/atlanta/session/mobile-hackathon/
