The first 73 panels of the annual geekfest conference SXSW Interactive have been announced. Organizers say it’s just a taste of the eventual 180 talks. The list is split into categories: Advertising, Business, Community, Content, Human Issues, Mobile, New Tech, Programming, Interface Design, and the ever-exciting “other.”
Among the programming-related panels that jump out at me:
- Even Faster Web Sites with Steve Souders
- How To Roll Your Own API with Kent Brewster
At SXSW the public gets a say in the content via a panel voting system, which closed in early September. An advisory board and SXSW staff also helped make the choices.
For those that are more into the evening activities, keep an eye on this Upcoming search.
