Big week ahead

See me speak at the IA Summit 2008This week we head out to the IA Summit and present our workshop on writing, using and building a pattern library and using that with code to prototype and build sites. My slides are done and Lucas is pulling everything together from the three of us presenting. It should be an interesting day and hopefully we have pulled together enough information and exercises that the attendees feel like they will have learned something.

Also this week, Yahoo! Developer Network will be launching the first batch of pages in the redesign project that I have been leading since December. It will be the first in a rolling roll-out that will most likely take until June to finish but this is a major milestone. Unfortunately, I will be teaching our workshop when the site launches so will have to cheer from afar.
