I’ll be heading in to Austin tomorrow to check in and get my badge before the crazy lines roll in Friday morning. Tomorrow night I’ll be at the Social Media BBQ at Emo’s. Friday I’ll start off in the Blogger’s Lounge because that’s where all the cool kids hang out. Depending on how my retrospective call at work goes (it’s the end of our agile development cycle) I hope to attend a few UX panels. You can find all the panels I’ve selected to attend on my SXSW schedule.
Saturday night the company I work for is cosponsoring a party with Tumblr, FourSquare, SoundCloud, and KickStarter at Emo’s. They are also cosponsoring the Houston@SXSW party Monday night at Hudson on Fifth. You can RSVP for that party here.
Sadly there doesn’t seem to be any Austin Barcamp activities going on. If there is something going on that I don’t know about yet, please inform me! I’d like to start a discussion on the need for good designers in free and open source software development and to brainstorm ways to get designers more interested in participating!
If you can’t find me at the panels I’ve posted, the Blogger’s Lounge, or at these parties – you should be able to spot me at The Planet’s booths (303 & 305) in the tradeshow sometime Sat & Sun 12 – 6 and Monday 12 – 4. I’m told there will be sweeeeeet giveaways so I hope to see you there!
