The countdown has begun!
Here’s all you need to know as an attendee to FOWA Miami 09 plus party news!
FOWA After party!!
After keeping you guys waiting for months i can now finally confirm that the FOWA After party will take place at Nikki Beach Club! 🙂
Nikki Beach Club
One Ocean Drive
Any of you guys that came along last year will remember what an amazing venue this is, and this year we have the whole place to ourselves so make sure youre there!
The party kicks off at 8pm until late so come along, grab a drink, a bed on the beach and listen to some tunes!
As you may already know Mike Arrington of TechCrunch is taking a month off so is unfortunately unable to join us at FOWA Miami.
Some good news is that we have another fantastic speaker in the line up!
Aza Raskin gave his first talk on user interface at age 10 and got hooked. At 17, he was talking and consulting internationally; at 21 he co-founded Humanized. Two years later, Aza founded Songza.com, a minimalist music search engine that had over a million song plays during it’s first week of operation. After Humanized was sucked into Mozilla, Aza became Head of User Experience for Mozilla Labs.
Workshops – Monday 23rd February
Doors open for the workshops at 8am with the first workshops starting at 9am, come along at 8 to pick up your pass and grab a much needed coffee before we begin. The sessions take place in the break out rooms in the Arsht Centre. The rooms will be clearly marked but the Carsonified crew will be on hand to help you. You will find your names outside your chosen workshop just in case you have forgotten which ones you signed up for!
