The Agenda is almost set.


We've been finessing and smoothing out the panels and programming pretty much round the clock over the past couple of weeks. We're not ready to reveal the whole thing quite yet, but we can tell you this, come to Alt Summit and you could learn:




-Why everyone and their cousin is talking about design more now then ever.




-How ad networks work, how they're changing and which networks cater especially to design and lifestyle sites.




-The realities of online design — hear from a web designer, programmer and online-type expert to learn what you need to know about online design now and what to know going forward.




-Blog Etiquette and how to appropriately (and legally!) credit the content sources and sponsors you're referencing on your site.




-Creative ways site owners are generating revenue outside of ad networks.




-Being a designer vs. being a design blogger — if you're both, what should the time balance be between the two?




-Designing your community and smart ways to grow your audience.




-How design will save social media. (It needs saving you ask? Come to Alt and find out.)




And that's just a taste. It keeps getting better and better. And better.

Eden Hensley

Marketing creative, community engagement specialist, technophile, photographer, food and wine enthusiast, and the founder and editor-in-chief of The Road to The Good Life, a lifestyle blog about appreciating and enhancing your life by being grateful for the "haves" instead of lingering on the "wants." There you will find personal stories about my life and family weaved in with real-life, achievable entertaining tips, recipes for hearty home cooked meals, and DIY projects for capturing and sharing memories. I believe the best place to swap stories is over a shared meal, preferably a Thai-meal served family style, and teach an online introduction class to Thai Flavors and host the Family Dinners at The Station supper club in San Francisco.
