Two weeks until WebVisions Barcelona

At the end of April I was lucky enough to receive one ticket to WebVisions Barcelona, courtesy of the great people from Smashing Magazine. I can only say that I am delighted for the opportunity and can hardly wait to be there. While not my first event ever (I participated to Barcelona Developers Conference in November) I can say that I am more eager for this specific one. Mainly, because of the topics chosen: a lot of the sessions are geared towards modern web technologies, like HTML5, CSS3, top-edge javascript, responsive web design. To sum things up, it’s about all the cool buzzwords that populate the web design and front end community.

My ticket covers only the two days of presentation and not the workshops. However I also have the chance to participate (free of charge) to the events in the first day (the visits to the main web studios of Barcelona and the networking reunion in the evening). Hopefully I will manage to find the time to do it. As for the bulk of the conference, I plan to attend to all the sessions related to front end technologies. I am lucky that the schedule does not put two of the same category at the same time.

Another thing that excites me is the presence of two Romanian speakers (at least going by their names), both part of the Adobe Air team and contributors to the WebKit engine. Back in April, when I won the ticket, Adobe had planned to bring 5 speakers, 4 of them with Romanian-like names. In the end it seems there will be only two (Mihnea Ovidenie and Raul Hudea) and I aim to participate to both their sessions.

In the end I hope to be able to personally give my thanks to the Smashing Magazine representants at the conference, to learn a lot of new interesting things and maybe start some connections with other people participating.
