New port80 event announced.

Port80 – the Australian Web Industry, of which I’m the membership officer has announced the next event – Ideas3.

The event features John Allsop from Sydney, who is a directory of Westciv, creators of Stylemaster; and Mark Boulton from the UK who is a noted typographer and designer who is currently working at the BBC.

For those of you who aren’t in Perth for the event on April 11, we will be posting the podcasts and photos after the event.

As an aside, the new Port80 site, which drives the event and memeber management systems was written by me in CakePHP.

Interested in starting a Port80 group in your local area? We are currently preparing an information pack. Port80 started as a way for web designers and developers in Perth could catch up in a casual, informal environment – usually at a pub. It is amazing how well it works – it’s a great way to meet other like minded people. You can read a better history on the Port80 website. Don’t forget to check out the port80 forums too!
