I have more than a soft spot for Australia. It’s where I’d live if that were possible and where I can see myself retiring to in, you know, twenty or so years. Luckily, I’m going back to Australia long before that, this March in fact, to speak at the fabulous Respond conference and to take my CSS For Responsive Web Design workshop on the road to Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth, as well as Sydney itself.
I’ve worked with the folks at Web Directions for many years, so I could not be happier that they’ve invited me to keynote at their Respond conference on March 19th this year. I’ll be closing the show after some amazing speakers including Scott Jehl, Nabeelah Ali, Kris Howard, Simon Elvery, Peter Wilson, Yesenia Perez, Ben Buchanan and Felicity Evans.
Tickets to Respond start at $599AUD but don’t stop there. If you’re in Sydney for the conference, or even if you’re not, join me for a full day CSS3 For Responsive Web Design workshop in Sydney on March 20th. (More details about what we cover on the day in just a minute.)
Workshopping in Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth too
Even if you can’t make it Respond in Sydney, I’ll ask be hosting my CSS3 For Responsive Web Design workshop Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth in March too!
- Melbourne, March 25th. This is ideal if you’re in Melbourne for CSSConf Australia 2015 as my workshop is the day before that conference.

Tickets for each workshop cost just $599AUD and you can buy yours here. My last two Australian workshop tours have sold out, so although I know everyone says it, you really should buy yours soon.
