GIANT Conference exists because creativity and community go together like a guitar and amp. GIANT is an event for people who do rad work. We’ll talk about rad work at a technical level, and we’ll talk about rad work in abstract levels. We’ll talk about doing rad work over drinks and music and just a generally good time. We’ll have people talking about rad work who you’ve heard of, and people you haven’t heard of. That’s because we think inspiration comes from all over, and rad work happens in all kinds of professions.

Come to GIANT If:

You are open to inspiration from people who aren’t just like you.
You know we don’t have to always talk about wireframes and CSS
You need a break from formality
You want to chill out with people who are creative in all kinds of ways
You need a little nudge toward a bold move
You believe that experience is more than prototypes and usable forms
You can’t stand the thought of another conference in a boring hotel basement
You dig art, music, and pop culture
You do rad work
You want to do rad work
