iQ Bootcamp For October

iQ Content bring their iQ Bootcamp to Morrisson’s Hotel in Dublin from October 17th to 19th with 3 days of intensive workshops. Its seems a bit pricey (would cost nearly 4 grand to send three of us there for the three days) but the topics covered are interesting…

  • Getting into the mind of your users… (profiling)
  • Intelligent interaction using AJAX and rich internet applications
  • Accessibility 2.0 (new WAI guidelines and their impact)
  • Writing for the web, the essentials
  • Web analytics (measuring and improving online performance)
  • Getting more from your intranet
  • Writing to sell and persuade
  • Rapid-fire user testing
  • Drive more traffic to your site (SEO, SEM, AdWords, AdSense)
  • Sell More Online

What more could you ask for in a “hip venue” with “networking and cocktails” as the flyer puts it….

Has anyone signed up for / going to sign up for this?

    Damn that is expensive – but soooo relevant for y’all 🙂

    A hip venue? Who will be DJing? haha 😀

    Way to expensive, and I bet it’ll mostly be things we already know. Apart maybe from that… “getting into the mind of your users” part… Are any more of the X-Men going to attend?

    Keith – Totally relevant, but if we continue to spend your morning breaks reading forums and article content online we’ll eventually build up enough material! €3600 euro if we register early, €5400 if we register late!

    Even a truckload of premium content downloads wouldn’t cost me half a grand for the office!

    Pavlos – I hear Magneto is doing a DJ set after his first lecture. Would be interesting to see what material thats provided, even for myself to go I’d be looking at €1200 to register early, three nights accommodation in the capital, three days out of work – not really something thats suited to a startup business!

    If they were to make the notes and presentations available at a cost I’d consider that move….

    It is such a pity because this is the type of event that we should be able to attend and learn from. Here is a thought…College! Did we cover any of this in college??? Nope, but this is where the colleges should stand up and get past the basics and introduce this type of material to budding Online Entrepreneurs! Lets hope there is a nice big Podcast 😀

    Hell college fees weren’t even €1200 a year!

    Note to self…. check old lecturers websites for notes on any related material 😀
