Get Ready Pittsburgh – Flashpitt, Web Design Day and Art and Code

There is a whole lot coming up that needs to be on your calendar if you’re into Interactive Design or Development and you live near Pittsburgh. For real.

Art and Code, March 7-9 2009
ART AND CODE is a symposium on programming environments for artists, young people, and the rest of us. The event takes place the weekend of March 7-9, 2009 on the campus of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. It features hands-on workshops and a conference showcase for ten different creative toolkits — programming languages made by artists, for artist.

Golan Levin is the main organizer, and you might recognize his name from his awesome presentation at Flashpitt last year.

Pittsburgh Web Design Day, April 4th, 2009
Refresh Pittsburgh and On the Fridge, LLC are teaming up to bring a one-day, very low-cost conference to web professionals in Western Pennsylvania. It’s a full day of learning from Pittsburgh web gurus …and lunch!

The really cool thing is that all the speakers for Pittsburgh Web Design day have to have strong ties to Pittsburgh. So all the speakers either live here right now or have in the past.

Tickets aren’t on sale yet, but if you are from/in Pittsburgh and would like to be a speaker, submit and RFP as we still have a couple of spots left.

Flashpitt October 15 – 16, 2009
We’re back again for 2009 and we are super excited to be bringing an even bigger and better Flashpitt to Pittsburgh. This year will feature pre-conference workshops, more networking opportunities, and a full day of sessions in two tracks.

Tell us what you want to see at Flashpitt. Offer up a suggestion by March 13th, 2009 via our suggestion form and you’ll be entered to win one free ticket to the conference.
