DIBI Conference 2011

DIBI ConferenceOne thing I rarely do here is write about something I’m the most passionate about. That being DIBI, the Design It Build It Web Conference held at The Sage Gateshead, North East of England annually. The first took place on the 28th April this year with a wide range of fantastic speakers including Andy Clarke, Michael Brunton-Spall, Simon Collison and Gareth Rushgrove.

From the feedback we received the conference was a success, so the planning for DIBI 2011 started almost immediately. The immediate thing to look at was the feedback from 2010 and the next was a possible line-up for the 2011 conference. The line-up is now complete and we have some fantastic speakers joining us and am very humbled to announce that Jeffrey Zeldman will be the Keynote Speaker.

The Full Line-up

Design It Track: Inayaili de Leon, Jeremy Keith, Mike Kus, Jared Spool, Brian Suda and Faruk Ates.

Build It Track: Blaine Cook, Rich Thornett, Jake Archibald, Corey Donohoe, Lorna Mitchell and Bradley Wright.
