The Making of Mint Workshop

Update: The rescheduled workshop has been cancelled due to lack of interest. Don’t worry internet, I won’t hold it against you.

Originally scheduled for the Friday after the Future of Web Apps Summit, my Developing an Extensible PHP Web App workshop was postponed in order to find a less crowded date. (In the three day span around the Summit there were four or five other web technology conferences/workshops in the London area.) I’m now happy to announce that the workshop has been rescheduled for April 6th and relocated to Boston. This is great news for those who expressed interest but found the cost of traveling to the UK prohibitive.

Ten reasons why you need to build an API

Speaking of the Summit, I’ve posted my deck from Ten reasons why you need to build an API (including one of the many gorgeous illustrations created by Kevin Cornell for my workshop) and Jeremy Keith has thrown together an actual podcast from the mp3s available on the Summit page.

Beautiful! I particularly love the alternating colors between numbers, backgrounds, and type on the numbered slides.

Thanks Dan. I think those subtler details were lost on the projector. I know my brain was lost during that presentation. I was so jet-lagged that I didn’t sleep at all the night before. I just laid in bed with my eyes closed for 7 hours. Note to those traveling east before a presentation: leave at least a day (I really needed two) for normal brain function.

Love those slides Shaun, easily the neatest and most professional looking presentation slides i’ve ever seen.

Yeah I agree, very smooth, just plain great. I love the way you displayed those little screengrabds with the gradient shadows. Plain awesome.

Why that’d of course be Shaun’s favorite font, DIN.

Nice presentation. I take it that you didn’t use Powerpoint for that?!!

Great work, Inman. Beautiful slides (great illustrations, Kevin) and very good points. Out of curiousity, what is your process for presentation slides? I notice you tend to post PDFs — do you use Keynote and then print to PDF, or do you use Phtoshop or other desig software? Just curious. :)

By the way, I was a little shocked to see a picture of myself in your presentation. Heh.

@Jeff, I do use Keynote for my presentations. It has an export to PDF option. Easy. I used Illustrator to work up the design before hand though.
