In a little more than two weeks, the Queen City is hosting BlendConf. This first time conference is a major event for Charlotte's web community. I'm writing to spread the word and encourage my colleagues to attend. If you live in the Charlotte region and work in or have any interest in user experience, web design, or development, make time to be at this conference.
BlendConf has an amazing lineup of 50 diverse speakers from Github, Adobe, Microsoft, Think Relevance and a handful of other amazing startups and workplaces. It's being put on by Charlotte's own UX expert and user group leader Bermon Painter (@bermonpainter). To make it different from your typical tech conference, this event will be device-free! You can see full details at http://www.blendconf.com/.
To encourage your participation, Bermon is offering a 10% coupon code for our readers. Simply enter KNOWMAD as the discount code to save on checkout! You can register online directly at https://tito.io/blendconf/blendconf-2013.
We don't have many web events of this caliber in Charlotte, so please spread the word and find a way to get to this event. Let's make this conference the preeminent annual web design & tech conference for the Southeast.
