This week in after-work design & tech events in Portland PDX Web Development

Good morning all! Big news for me – I have been invited to the CHIFOO 2014 speakers series on Storytelling. My talk is current titled, "Show, Don’t Tell: Storytelling Experience Design in Modern Comic Books", and is scheduled for March 2014! I’m excited about sharing a wealth of insights I have on two long-dear-to-me subjects, and I must admit I’m a little intimidated by the enthusiasm that’s already coming out of the woodwork as I share this news with friends and colleagues. I’ll be calling on many of you to preview the talk as it develops, and if you’ve got anything you want to share with me on the subject, allow me to buy you a beer and ply it out of you.

Big items hit my radar for the more recent future:

TechFest NW (Sept 6-8 – this weekend!!), UX Intensive Seattle (Nov 4-7), JavaScript Summit 2013, ConveyUX 2014… (and others you can find in Smashing Magazine’s mega list) .

And the Summer Coder’s Social on Sept 14th (for those of you who are into family-friendly events aka Not Me).

Wanna meet other web developers in town? Come out with me tonight!
