For the third year in a row, I attended WordCamp Birmingham. And for the third year in a row, it’s delivered on great content. My favorite session was one that I almost passed on; Sara Cannon‘s “Beyond the System Font: Advanced Web Typography” sounded like the same talk she delivered last year, but the technology has leaped forward in the past year, so the session was totally new. I will be implementing typekit.com on this blog, very soon. Thanks, Sara.
Yesterday, we were meeting outside at Birmingham’s newest urban project called Railroad Park. It’s a very nice greenspace right in the middle of town, with spacious covered pavilions that we used for shelter from the really hot sun. I walked around the park before heading back to Georgia and took a bunch of photos, the best of which are below.
