The dConstruct Time Capsule

You have just two more days to enter the dConstruct Time Capsule competition which could win you a VIP ticket to the conference, including dinner with the speakers at a swish restaurant and two nights at a fancy-pants hotel in Brighton. Tickets to the conference are very, very near to selling out so winning might be your only chance to get to dConstruct this year.

How do you enter? Well, the theme of this year’s dConstruct is Designing for Tomorrow so that got us thinking about what we would preserve for the future in a time capsule. So take a look around you. What do you see that you would like to preserve for the future? Take a picture of it, upload that picture to Flickr and tag it with dconstructcapsule. The best entry as judged by Clearleft wins this rather splendid prize.

Future-proof yourself

Prior to the conference itself, we are running four dConstruct workshops, all with designing for tomorrow in mind. All workshop attendees get a free ticket to the main conference.

Jeremy, Natalie and I are presenting HTML5 and CSS3 Wizardry which I’m afraid has now sold out, as has Designing Mobile Experiences with Brian Fling.

However there are a few places left for lucky people to join Matt Biddulph on the Internet of Things Master Class which will focus on getting programmers and technologists up to speed about the latest hardware technologies, allowing them to build web-enabled, responsive installations and spaces.

There’s also a few tickets left for jQuery for Designers led by Remy Sharp. I’ll definitely be attending that, and if you’re any kind of designer I recommend you do too, as Remy really, really knows his stuff. So much so in fact, he has organised his own JavaScript conference, Full Frontal, in November in Brighton.
