SXSW 2012

Published by Chris Coyier

I'm headed down to Austin in a few days here for my 2nd SXSW. Hope to see some of you folks there. I'm trying not too have much of a plan, but here's a few things I'm doing:

There is a SurveyMonkey party and a crew of us from Wufoo / SurveyMonkey will be there hanging out. Free food and drinks. RSVP here and come.

My ShopTalk Show cohort Dave Rupert lives down there. We have no official plans but if we're hanging out somewhere for a bit maybe we'll do an impromptu meetup. Follow @shoptalkshow on Twitter for news of that.

The whole BarCamp Tour crew will be there. There is a BarCamp tour panel called 5 Brands Travel the US Inspiring Entrepreneurship where last year's tour will be discussed and how that all went down. Possibly an impromptu Barcamp meetup as well, so follow @barcamptour for that.

I'm am actually going to the conference as well. I've marked a few things I'd be interested in going to see on Lanyrd. I probably won't make all of them but definitely some of them. I mostly marked front endish ones, but I'll very likely go to others that have nothing to do with that. The wide variety of talks is definitely a strength of SXSW that is smart to take advantage of.


  1. I will probably try and creep on you Chris, you are kind of famous….to a geek.

    Unfortunately my company is not sending me to SXSW, so I have to work for most of it. So have fun and write about the awesome stuff you learned and I will just read it here.

    But no really, feel free to shoot me an email and I will buy you a beer for all the great stuff you have helped me with over my years as a fledgling developer.

  2. Chris, we are going to be at SXSW too … and would love for you to be our guest us after your own gig as we have helped organize the Interactive Party for The Buffalo Lounge on Monday night (doing Rock-aroke after 10). We’ll be there until 2 a.m. :)

  3. I work right by the conference center, but I’m a newbie to SXSW. I don’t have a clue how to get into any of the sessions, events and such.
