EECI2009, the first ExpressionEngine and CodeIgniter Conference

32 comments 2009 at 10.47 am posted by Veerle Pieters

In October I’ll be traveling to Leiden, The Netherlands. Never been there but apparently the city is famous for its almshouses, university, museums and glorious history - and the spirit of the Golden Age lives on here. This is a place where Rembrandt was born and inspired so many other influential painters. Read on for free tickets and a special Veerle’s blog reader discount.

South by Southwest Interactive (Austin, TX - US) was really a blast as usual. This year Cindy Li, Leslie Jensen-Inman and I decided to enter a panel with the title “Color Angels, Episode 1: Colors: It’s Not Black and White”Our session was about exploring the challenges in color combinations as a key to successful website designs. Advice on what tools you’ll need in your arsenal to be inspired.

Vote for our panel at SXSWi 2009

2 comments 2008 at 07.30 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

It’s that time again, when you can vote for the panels for the next edition of SXSWi. Since 2006, I’ve traveled to and attended this big event in Austin, Texas. I like going to SXSW, not only because I get to see most of my overseas friends but also because I always have the opportunity to meet new creative people, learn new things, and share ideas. SXSW is really an event for connecting with people. This year I didn’t join a panel, but for next year Cindy Li asked me if I was interested in doing a panel and we asked Leslie Jensen-Inman if she would like to join us. The 3 of us have become really good friends over the past 3 years and the idea of doing a panel together made me smile.

Quick and dirty report on SXSWi07

25 comments 2007 at 08.47 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

This is Veerle reporting about my SXSWi 2007 adventures in Austin, Texas :) I can’t really believe that it is over already because it feels like we just arrived in sunny Austin. The flights to Austin via Chicago went very uneventful so that’s a good thing. Returning back home we had a one hour delay in Chicago, but because of favorable winds we made up some of that time. I really had a blast this year and here’s my story if you like it or not :)

Web Directions North, the story

40 comments 2007 at 07.09 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

Web Directions North is over and I am still sick, but at least I now had the doctor coming over and he prescribed me some medication. When we arrived in Canada we hang out with Jeremy Keith and Dave Shea and enjoyed the local coffee art as you’ll see when I upload my pictures. It’s really cool what they do with the milk. You got to see them doing it to better grasp it but they wouldn’t let us film it.

Web Directions North, not packed yet!

Sunday morning here in Belgium and I still have to pack our bags for the trip to Canada for Web Directions North. They pick us up in 3 hours :) That’s an example of how hectic things can get when you are trying to please clients by doing as much as humanly possible and tying up loose ends.

Speaking at Web Directions North

19 comments 2006 at 01.41 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

I’m just starting to settle in in our new place and the next exciting adventure already comes knocking at my doorstep. One of the countries that has always been on my to-go list is Canada, the world’s second biggest country with its 24 thousand kilometers coastline. Its great nature is one of the reasons I want to visit it. Now I have another, it’s called “Web directions North”.

Just got back from Paris today. After @media London, we decided to travel a bit and go to Paris with Dave. It was an honor to speak on @media about design with 2 of my favorite colleague designers Jon Hicks and Cameron Moll.
