Last week Phil and I were at the STP Conference in New Orleans. Neither of us got to see much of the city but I recommend visiting this conference.
The relatively small scale created a strong sense of community. Meeting the same people at the different sessions made it easy to communicate and exchange ideas on the issues discussed after the sessions ended. Also nice was seeing the different speakers join and actively participate in others sessions on the same topics creating a continuous conversation.
Some personal highlights:
I enjoyed Uday’s presentation on mobile at Progressive
Wilson also gave some good insights regarding mobile
And of course our own Phil Lew did a good job explaining UX and usability.
BTW based on the small part of New Orleans that I saw I also recommend visiting that city … and hope to be back there for another visit soon.
