BarCamp Albuquerque 3 Around the Corner

Sep 10, 2008

Published in


Yes, it's short notice, but mark your calendars: BarCamp Albuquerque 3 is this weekend.

September 1314, from 9am–6pm both days
CJW Cafe on 4801 Alameda Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87113
A two-day event all about the web — design (visual, experience, information architecture), technology (infrastructure, programming), social and new media, and other stuff that is just plain cool.

Even better, yours truly is presenting.

So What?

Well, it's an opportunity to network (and not in the cheesy, business–card–pusher way) with other local and like-minded individuals (web and technology geeks).

And you just might learn a thing or two.


As mentioned, I'll be presenting a Web Standards Primer on Saturday at 2pm. I plan to cover (at a minimum):

  • Definition of standards
  • Importance of validation
  • Semantics
  • Separation of content from presentation and behavior
  • Accessibility
  • Benefits (to designers, developers, employers/clients, users and the industry as a whole)

I, personally, am really looking forward to Chris Kenworthy's (of </dream-in-code> fame) presentation on web analytics, heat maps and A/B testing.

But the line-up offers something for everyone:

  • Marketing
  • Social media
  • Python
  • Start-ups
  • Open source
  • Web 2.0
  • CSS
  • and more!

So, try to attend this weekend, even if it is just to get to know some new folks. (Plus, I could use all the support I can get, as I'm nervous as hell.)

The Coolest Person I Know

Emily Lewis

Yeah, that would be me: .

I'm a freelance web designer of the standardista variety, which means I get excited about things like valid POSH, microformats and accessibility. I ply my trade from my one-person design studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico 87106 USA.

A Blog Not Limited is my personal blog where I pontificate about web design, web standards, semantics and whatever else strikes my fancy. Head on over to Emily Lewis Design if you'd like to see my work or, even better, hire me.
