So what is Synconf 2015? Well Synconf is a conference with a difference, it is actually a ‘un-conference’. Un-conferences are different to traditional conferences in that everyone attending is involved in shaping the event. The event is put on by Syncherts, a monthly meet-up group for tech people and geeks like me (James). Every month Syncherts hosts a series of talks on a specific topic – an event that encourages networking. I attend each month and find it very helpful and interesting.
Anyway, back to the website. So the purpose of this site was to let everyone know about the big event: show the schedule for the day and let potential punters know how to get tickets. The brief was to create a one-page website that had to be appealing to ‘techy’ people. We kept the layout bold and simple, and tried to think about what info needed to be served up first: date, venue, how to get tickets. We created icons for the menu which scrolls down to the particular section when the relevant button is clicked on. We also created a schedule section that clearly defines the day’s events. All looks very exciting, hope to see you there!
