About once a year, some of The Phuse team flies down to Atlanta, GA to do a meet-and-greet with our clients and colleagues. That time is now, so read on to learn about the events we’re attending and sponsoring while we’re there.
This Wednesday, June 27th, James will be volunteering at an “Intro to HTML and CSS” workshop organized by Ladies Learning Code. The Atlantic’s Ideas Report 2012 also touches on the benefits of endowing basic coding knowledge to students.
Last week Jenna and I flew down to San Diego, CA to meet over a hundred web designers and developers at the second annual ValioCon 2012.
The third annual Trek for Teens race day took place on May 12th, 2012 in Nathan Phillips Square. Here are the winners and some photos. Thanks for coming out!
James shares his experience at PartnerCon 2011 in San Diego, an opportunity to meet new photographers. While in San Diego, James had the opportunity to spend time with great clients and friends, some of whom we are lucky enough to call by both names.
One of the key components I see to inspire and motivate people who are getting things done is a support system of like-minded friends and peers. BarCamp creates this kind of environment for the technology industry, and the related fields of design and business, which is why I keep going back.
