Refresh DC: December recap

Refresh LogoLast night, I made it out to my second Refresh DC meeting out in Alexandria. (Thanks to The Motley Fool for hosting the event and providing great pizza and drinks.) If you’re not familiar with the group, Refresh DC is a group of web professionals (designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and other web professionals) who meet monthly to discuss relevant industry topics. We had a great turnout last night, with over 40 folks who came out to listen to a recap of the Refresh'06 conference that happened last month in Orlando. Cindy Li, Jeremy Carbaugh, Jackson Wilkinson, and Jason Garber provided an insightful overview that highlighted each of the presentations that happened during the two-day event. So, instead of writing a recap of a recap, I’ll just direct you to the source. Here are the slides from last night’s presentation: http://sixtwothree.org/presentations/refresh06/ (The slides really just point to the original speakers’ presentations.) I enjoyed getting a chance to meet and chat with a lot of fine folks there and a highly recommend it for all you web professionals out there. Next month's meeting will be featuring guest speaker Dan Rubin, a designer/developer and published author, coming all the way from Ft Lauderdale, FL. Go to refresh-dc.org and sign up for the mailing list for reminders and details of upcoming meetings. Also a big thanks to Rob, Peyton and Kendra for coming out and representing the design team. If you do get a chance to make it out to a future meeting, find us and say hello. On a side note, Viget Labs is actively recruiting for designers, developers, and project managers. Chatting with us at one of these meetings would be a great chance for you to gain some insight into what Viget is all about, and I promise you’ll meet some smart, fun people at the same time.
