Edge of the Web is a loosely structured conference for web devs, ethicists, creatives, entrepreneurs and futurists with a focus on outsourcing, design thinking, ethics and profitable collaboration.
Outsourcing: a taboo subject. It’s a threat to Australia developers and designers; also an opportunity. Matt Barrie is the founder of freelancer.com. He’ll keynote for us. Miles Burke will present a contrary view.
Then, some of your peers will share what they’ve learned in that area and how they now approach it. Then, some of your peers will share what they’ve learned in that area and how they now approach it.
And for those not competing on price, what’s your business strategy? Troy Dean, Jane Farrow and Rori Van Loggerenberg will frame that discussion. Then we talk.
Will Donovan leads us into some design thinking about the industry itself. Seriously. How can we improve our reputation, standards, job satisfaction and income?[If you’re doing strategy with clients, you should definitely see how this guy runs a collaborative workshop.]
We’re designing a set of futures for the web industry at this conference. Create a little history with us in Will's session.
