Book ‘em Danno! Hardboiled Web Design workshops

No it wasn’t a revolutionary new device. It wasn’t even the release of The Beatles music in a lower quality, more expensive format. Oh no, it was much more exciting. Hardboiled Web Design workshop dates in 2011. Yeah! No kidding!

Here’s the skinny:

‘Hardboiled Web Design’ offers a fresh perspective on designing for the web — never compromising, always pushing boundaries. It strips markup to the bone and uses HTML5 and CSS3 to the maximum to help make your sites more adaptable to whatever the web might throw at them. Based on the highly acclaimed book ‘Hardboiled Web Design’ by Andy Clarke.

(Who writes this stuff?) Seriously, we are hosting four Hardboiled Web Design workshops in Birmingham, Edinburgh, London (in partnership with our friends at Web Directions) and Manchester.

With so many conferences and workshops about about HTML and CSS on offer, do you really need to go to another one? Hardboiled Web Design is different. It’s for designers and developers of websites, both large or small, who want to understand why and how to use the latest HTML5 and CSS3 technologies. Not tomorrow or next week, but today. You’ll need to be willing to leave your preconceptions at the door and be hungry to learn.
