Patterns Talk for An Event Apart

Last month I was one of the speakers at An Event Apart, Minneapolis. It was a fantastic experience and I highly recommend it. If it’s at all in your budget, get thee to An Event Apart. One of the best conferences I have ever been too. But then I am partial to very geeky things and appreciated the fact that this was geared towards designers and builders.

My talk was, surprisingly, not a Social Design talk, but rather a talk about Patterns – or more specifically Patterns, Components and Code, Oh My!

Here are my slides. The details of what I said are covered in my last post about the various libraries coming together as a holistic toolkit for the full team.
