Typekit at SxSW: Parties and Panels
The annual South by Southwest conference is happening in Austin, Texas, this weekend, and Typekit will be there. We’re co-hosting a big Web Fonts Meetup and will be participating in a number of panels. Here are the details:
Join the Typekit team and co-hosts Font Bureau, FontShop, and Webtype for geeky conversation about fonts, the web, and more. There will be demos and a DJ. Plus, we’re buying drinks!
Typekit’s Jeffrey Veen will be joined by Roger Black (The Font Bureau), Bert Bos (W3C), Stephen Coles (FontShop/Typographica), and David Berlow (The Font Bureau) for a lively conversation on the current state of typography on the Web, plus a look at the challenges and opportunities ahead.
Greg Veen, Typekit’s front end development geek, is leading a panel discussion on the pros and cons of both Flash and the HTML5 Canvas element. Considering the recent Flash-free iPad announcement, you can expect a lot of interesting debate in this session.
And finally, our own Bryan Mason will lead a discussion on how to deal with difficult professional situations. His panel of seasoned pros will consider what to do when you’ve got bad employees, difficult partners, and troublesome customers.
Hope to see you there!
