WordCamp NYC Photos And Links

WordCamp NYC 2010

The day started with a morning full of 5 minute lightning talks to help attendees choose which session to attend in the afternoon. I was up front taking photos of the speakers, photos are now up on flickr, and in this slideshow:

Session Roundups

In the afternoon, longer form presentations were given on a number of topics, from blogging, to academic use, and more technical topics. Here are some slide decks from some of the more interesting sessions—some I made it to and others I wish I did:

I think some of the sessions should be up on wordpress.tv at some point so keep an eye out for them.

Future Of Web Design London Audio

Holzschlag giving an overview of the status of web standards, Simon Sankarayya on designing interfaces, both online and physical, and Robin Christopherson giving a JAWS demo and discussing design and accessibility in a Web 2.0 world.

From the sounds of the speakers I’ve listed to so far I can say that once again the FOWD lineup was something special and the team who put it together has found a solid and relevant lineup of speakers to help inform the modern web worker.
