The In Control 2011 Conference is coming up on February 21-22 and the unmatchedstyle crew will be there. I really can’t wait honestly. I’ve gotten to know Christopher Schmitt founder and producer of the In Control conference as well as those great “summit” online conferences, I’ve spoken with him on several occasions in the past at length about his conferences. Each time he’s put together something that you can truly learn from.
We are going to be at this conference, because I personally trust Christopher’s abilities when it comes to putting together a great conference. This one is the real deal too. In Control is setup so that each speaker has almost two hours to cover their topic, you’re guaranteed at least a full hour from each of them on their topics of choice (and each speaker has a very high level track record for being at the top of their respective games) with plenty of follow up time. The setting is also promised to be a little more closer than larger conferences where you have 500+ people in attendance. Personally these are my favorite, I like to be able to meet a few people and get to know them as much as I can throughout the day and when you’re surrounded by hundreds of people that’s really not easy. Not to mention no one is really going to remember you months later very easily.
Let’s review the speakers and topics here though (deeper intro to each here):
Responsive Design Workshop
Web Workflow Workshop
Stephanie (Sullivan) Rewis
User Research Workshop
Emotional Interface Design Workshop
Over the next couple of weeks, building up to our trip to Orlando i’m going to try to talk with some of these amazing speakers for a little preview of what’s coming at us at In Control and of course we’ll try to corner as many of them as we can while we’re there and get some interviews on what they’re up to, it should be fun.
