Jay Gilmore, of SmashingRed, and I have been discussing the availability (and/or feasibility) of Canadian-based web design conference. Jay posted on his blog the following:
To all the Canadian developers and designers for the web, I noted a post on [thelist] the mail list of evolt.org wanting to know if their are any Canadian Web Developer /Designer conferences. It seems as if this is an unheard of event. If anyone out there knows of any other event besides Flash In The Can let me know.
If you donâ€™t know of any such events, let me know if you have any interest in a Great White North Web Conference. It could be held anywhere and or we could rotate locations around the country. BTW my own bent is toward standards-based websites using (X)HTML and CSS but XML and other technologies are more than welcome to discuss and suggest a program etc. I really want to push websites as a marketing and sales vehicle as well. This post is a little stream-of-consciousness but I had the impulse to post.
Feel free to comment there or here.
UPDATE (13 Dec 2005): See more here on the feasibility of a Toronto-based conference.
UPDATE (14 Dec 2005): Vote for your preferred location.
