Network with Web technology professionals and gurus, watch demonstrations and do much more at this year's Spring <br> 2004 Information Technology Conference on March 25 in the new Lecture Hall Facility on West Green.
The daylong conference features a general session with Ben Forta, senior product evangelist from Macromedia, and a wide variety of breakout sessions, including Flash MX: 60 Tips in 50 Minutes by Phillip Kerman; Dreamweaver: Killer Tips for Developers by Joseph Lowery; Building Scalable Web sites by Todd Peters; PaperThin; and more.
"Conference participants can get up-to-date on the latest technology and find new methods for approaching problems, sometimes for ones they never knew existed," said David Hannum, Web analyst/programmer at Ohio University.
Registration is $15 and includes a "Lunch 'n Learn" by Forta who will be demonstrating Macromedia's newest technology, FLEX. The conference is from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. To register, visit www.seomug.org/conference.cfm. Registration is limited to 300 people. Last year, 260 people from Ohio and seven different states attended the conference.
"There aren't many IT conferences within driving distance of the University and none are comparable to this," Hannum said. "We're bringing to campus some of the top IT authors and experts."
The Southeast Ohio Macromedia User Group (SEOMUG), in partnership with the Information Technology Alliance of Appalachian Ohio (ITAAO), presents the conference, which is sponsored by Computer Services and the Center for Innovations in Technology for Learning (CITL) at Ohio University and Macromedia Inc.
