Rockin' it at the Webmaster Jam Session

I’m here at the 2007 Webmaster Jam Session and have enjoyed it so far. Cody and I flew down here together and are staying at Nathan and Olga Smith’s house.

I may write more later, but so far, Jared Spool’s presentation was awesome, Garrett Dimon’s was really, really excellent, Jeff Croft’s was great, and Jason Beaird’s was good.

It’s a much smaller venue than SXSW – which is nice – and so far, has been more informative. Good times are being had by all.

  1. My pen is still burning from trying to keep up with Jeff’s presentation!

  2. I missed Jeff’s presentation for James Craig’s presentation on developing for mobile devices. Great info – were you at Molly’s session?

  3. I did make it to Molly’s session, and really enjoyed it. It was enlightening to hear about what goes into developing a browser “to standards” and all the gray areas there. Good stuff.

  4. I agree, Molly’s session was great. Not sure if you were at the Adobe CS3 session yesterday afternoon, but the session was interrupted several times with applause from the audience.

    The new features in Photoshop, Bridge, Dreamweaver, Fireworks and Flash were met with astonished gasps from several of the people around me.

    Sorry we missed meeting each other. It was a great conference with wonderful speakers.

    Catch you on the Godbit forums.

  5. It was nice to meet you in person as well, Nate. It’s really strange when you have all these names of people who you’ve never met, but whose websites you’ve seen at some point or another and then all of a sudden to meet them all at once. I don’t know if I said this at lunch, but I think my favorite panel of the event was Chris Bernard’s panel on Classic Design and Web Design. I heard a few people say they didn’t feel like they walked away with anything from that one, but I’m a sucker for art history and how it applies to the web, so for me, it really hit home. Glad to hear you thought mine was good too. Despite what I said in my pre-jam blog post, I was pretty nervous.

  6. The jam session was really awesome as well as very relevant and practical. I am really bummed that I didn’t get a chance to meet you, perhaps next year!
