Refresh Dallas needs speakers!

Just today I volunteered to take on the even coordinator role of a fun group here in town, Refresh Dallas. What is Refresh, you ask?

Refresh is a community of designers and developers working to refresh the creative, technical and professional aspects of new media endeavors in the Dallas area.

Do you feel like the web needs a new look? Interested in the latest web technologies? Care about design, but feel it must be usable? Then you’ve come to the right place.

Sign up on the site for updates.

Since I’m now in charge of booking speakers, I’m putting out a call. If you’re interested in speaking, or have ideas for topics, drop me a mail: jake AT biggu DOT com.

I hope to see you at the next meeting!
