Hardboiled Web Design workshops only weeks away

It’s been two months since my new book, Hardboiled Web Design, was published by Five Simple Steps and a few weeks since the paperback started arriving on desks and shelves around the world. It’s been incredibly exciting to read how much people love it. Now preparations are in full swing for what comes next, Hardboiled Web Design workshops across the UK.

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.

At the end of the day, you’ll understand

  • Why web browsers don’t limit your creativity
  • That websites shouldn’t look, or be experienced the same in every browser
  • How to handle older, less capable browsers
  • That browser differences are creative and business opportunities, not obstacles

For the next few weeks, I’ll be hard(boiled) at work making slides and preparing some never-seen-before examples of what it takes to be hardboiled. Examples that will not only make people say “wow” but are practical enough to be used in everyday work.

We’ve chosen four great venues in four great cities — Birmingham, Edinburgh, London and Manchester — all with great transport links to make it easy to get there by car, train or plane. We also have three great sponsors — Campaign Monitor, Microsoft and VPS.NET — more about that another day.

Prices start from only £299.00 + VAT for early-bird tickets and you’ll walk away with extensive notes and hardboiled HTML5 and CSS3 examples that are exclusive to this workshop. Book your place today. I hope I’ll see you there.


I’m available for hire to consult on and design products and websites. Based in North Wales, I travel regularly to work with clients world-wide.

Available from January 2020
