I’m doing the BUILD HIVE 2011 conference combo

I’ve been looking forward to the BUILD conference since it was announced.  Seeing the Windows 8 demo, with its fancy new Metro evolved look and the fact that new development technologies are on the horizon, makes me feel giddy at the idea of once again a new technology to explore, hate and love.

I had all my plans in place and everything was set until Friday night I caught wind of the HIVE conference happening right here in the Seattle area.

A design and tech conference happening right here, with all the cool kids in the neighborhood?  How could I miss it?

Well, I almost could have because it happens to be on September 16th the last day of the BUILD conference.  Hmm, the last day of a 4-day conference, that’s where the conference organizers tend to place the sessions that they should run, but are not the most excited about.  I bet if I catch those online later, I won’t miss too much.

So the decision is made. Fly down to Anaheim for BUILD, soak up Windows 8 and HTML5 goodness then come home a day early to attend HIVE and ruminate over design and developer workflow and be inspired to do greater work.

Anyone else doing the BUILD HIVE combo?

  1. Only if Hive will records and shares videos of sessions online like Build… i hate to live in Portugal :(

  2. Hi Adam, yes thats a good idea. I was bummed to see HIVE pop up a couple days after registering for BUILD. Was trying to think how I could work both in and you make a good point. I tweeted about this dilemma and the HIVE twittered sympathy and that videos would be made public.
    See you at BUILD!

  3. Who puts a UX conference on the last day of Build! Especially with quite a few speakers (and sponsor) from Microsoft and partner companies. I am actually coming up to Seattle on Friday but only in the evening, so no Hive for me. I’ll catch the videos, but I just don’t get it. What a weird decision.
