Weekend Review

convergeWe are still recovering from our weekend trip to Converge SE in Columbia, South Carolina. We learned so much and had a great time meeting some inspiring web designers and developers. Friday we attended small workshops on various topics including design, development and mobile, lead by some of the best and brightest in the industry. Saturday was a day full of inspirational speakers.

Steve SmithIn addition to invaluable information and incredible inspiration, we met some great people and made new friends. We learned so much we can’t possibly share it all in one post, so in the coming weeks, we hope to feature some of the new information and resources we learned about at Converge.

P.S. One really great thing about going to a web conference with a strong emphasis on design is the beautiful slides. We have never seen more beautiful, well thought out presentation slides.
