a very good experience for my education.

Jul 26, 2009 at 7:06 am

A UI conference would be fabulous!!! It’s the best way to stay up-to-date. I’m tired of purchasing books that are old school 6 months after publishing.

I always like to create my own style websites but never had a professional training like this workshop and I love to attend this workshop where I can boost my skill and learn from the best professionals in this field. Please, select me and it’s my the best goal to achieve.

As a web developer instead of a web designer it would be awesome to attend this conference to get more hands on experience with designing the UI as opposed to just building what the designers tell me to build …

Jul 26, 2009 at 8:09 am

Hmmm, why should I go. I’m a young (18yrs old) designer that needs all the help he can get to become an amazing designer. Plus New York city has got some killer gyros…

Jul 26, 2009 at 8:17 am

Sounds like a great opportunity to get new perspectives and get out of my own little reality!

Jul 26, 2009 at 8:26 am

Hey, I attended that school. On top of the auditorium, there is a 2-floors library with 100+ Ethernet ports. I wonder any of my friends are still there. It would be great to take a break from my work and attend this event.

This is a great opportunity for a web design noob! I’m trying to expand my understanding of UI, and it’d be a super fun event!

Wow, the format for this show looks amazing. Small, personal and intense, a real materclass experiance. I’m an interactive designer in an exhibition company and I’m constantly pushing my company and clients to improve and invest in better UI for interactive pieces, both online and kiosks. I think this show will be a great experiance and will really enable me to make better products.

Jul 26, 2009 at 9:14 am

I absolutely love programming, but I feel like my graphic work is far behind. This would be fun plus if there’s a chance of meeting you, I’ll get to meet a real ui pro!

Jul 26, 2009 at 9:19 am

Looks like a great opportunity to Delve right into UI design!

Jul 26, 2009 at 9:29 am

Watching tutorials and reading blog posts is one thing, but attending a workshop and feeling the actual inspiration is something I would really love.

Jul 26, 2009 at 9:37 am

Just moved to NYC, so this would be a wonderful experience and great way to jump into the local community. Pick me!

Jul 26, 2009 at 10:25 am

Just chillin’ with like-minded folks is good enough for me.

Jul 26, 2009 at 11:30 am

Boston’s not too far away from NYC! I’d like to go!

Jul 26, 2009 at 11:43 am

Delve sounds like a fantastic way to get a variety of perspectives and meet new people. I would love to go.

Jul 26, 2009 at 12:19 pm

Would love to attend, great group of experts on hot topics. Could use a lot of inspiration and knowledge for projects. Let’s make the web a beautiful, usable space!

Jul 26, 2009 at 12:34 pm

1) jobless – could really update myself
2) live close to nyc (1 hr drive) so if i win, i will definitely attend
3) will try and get some other person with me so atleast one more ticket will be sold hehe
4) i really want to go please…

Rob Person
Jul 26, 2009 at 12:53 pm

I would really love to be able to enhance my UI/design skills to make myself a more marketable developer. A workshop like this would help me tremendously.

Jul 26, 2009 at 1:56 pm

Throwing my name in there because there will always be more to learn. Always be moving, never stagnate!

Jul 26, 2009 at 2:47 pm

I just moved to NYC and am looking for a job as a UI/UX Designer. Why I’m an awesome candidate to go to delve.nyc for free, you may ask?
1) I live in NYC, so my commute will be short.
2) I’m unemployed, so I can’t afford it.
3) I’m unemployed, so I can afford to take the time off.
4) I’ve been in the biz for 10 years, and am always striving to learn more.
5) I’m sick of looking at job sites all day… this will be a much needed break!

Adam Amaral
Jul 26, 2009 at 3:22 pm

I just moved to NYC too I guess thats the cool thing to do. But none the less, I’m broke, I love design and I would love to go to Delve.

Jul 26, 2009 at 4:16 pm

The presenter list looks amazing! I’d love to be there.

Mike Taylor
Jul 26, 2009 at 5:05 pm

Living in Brooklyn myself, I’d love to be able to go to DelveUI–but can’t afford the ticket right now (as a student)! The line-up looks amazing–I follow many of the speakers’ blogs. Good luck to whoever wins the tickets, opportunities like these don’t come to often (especially in my backyard).

Jul 26, 2009 at 5:11 pm

Would love to learn more about UI, don’t have the money, and live in NYC.

Jul 26, 2009 at 9:03 pm

Ptiy! I am live in China

Matt Wood, DC
Jul 26, 2009 at 10:33 pm

Awesome news. Why would I like to attend? Because we live in the future, and I would like to help design that future. Why else? Because sharing some thoughts from other passionate designers is the way the web (and the world) gets better. What’s more, this is the first year of delve, and the folks eager to attend assuredly share that same spark for new things and innovative ideas. Lastly, the speaker list is comprised of some of my favorite folks. Thanks, and I hope to make the cut!

Jose Burgos Jr.
Jul 26, 2009 at 11:12 pm

Hmm… Plenty of reasons why I would like to attend and win a pair of tickets~ But the most important would be that I’m just out of College and I am in the works of building a blog / portfolio type cms. If I won this would be a great place to extend my skills.

Burt Brumme
Jul 26, 2009 at 11:45 pm

Why would I like to go? Cuz I’m just a squirrel/interface designer, trying to get a nut/raise my rate and put out something that I”m proud of. This looks like a good opportunity to expedite those goals. Also, NY is the shiz. Tks for the ticket if I win, and tks for the great site even if I don’t.

Jul 27, 2009 at 6:23 am

As a web design and developer by choice Delve:UI would be an excelent experience for me to attend! I can not wait to go. ;’)

Thanks for the opportunity!

David Papez
Jul 27, 2009 at 6:39 am

That would be just great :P I’ve never been in NY before. ;)

Jul 27, 2009 at 8:33 am

I’m an interactive production artist, one of a two person department at a decent sized agency. We’re the grunts, we get the work done and no one really understands how much is involved with making their website and banners ready to rock.

Lately, I’ve had to take on a bit of UI design due to some “economic shifting”. I’d love to attend this event in hopes of garnering a bit of professional wisdom. I could, quite frankly, use the guidance. It would be absolutely incredible to sit in while the folk at Delve/UI talk about all they’ve learned over the years.

Jul 27, 2009 at 9:00 am


Im René from The Netherlands, and im a webdeveloper/designer it would be great to be there at that workshop.
And it would be my first time in the USA :P


Mary Fran Wiley
Jul 27, 2009 at 9:03 am

I just founded my own agency and this workshop would be a fantastic opportunity for me to learn from some great experts in UI design.

Jul 27, 2009 at 9:15 am

I would love to go! The schedule and speakers look great, extremely interesting and innovative. Plus, I live in NY!

Jul 27, 2009 at 9:40 am

The most important part about good design is creating a good experience for the user. I’d love to hear industry leaders speak out on the subject matter.

Mike McP
Jul 27, 2009 at 10:48 am

I love the format and you have some awesome speakers lined up. I wold really love to go but money is tight tight now. Please, please, please pick me. This clearly isn’t a “fluffy” conference, but rather the type where you actually learn… a lot! Thanks for making some tickets available. Even if I’m not lucky enough to be picked, I think it’s a true service to the developer community. Thanks!!

would love the opportunity to learn about the latest techniques and to be inspired

Jul 27, 2009 at 12:40 pm

I’m a free-lancer and although I’m strong in development I could definitely benefit from some UI improvements. This conference looks like it would be great to help me take the next step for learning how to better develop UI for my clients.

Jul 27, 2009 at 2:07 pm

I don’t personally want to go to this event however I think what you are doing is a great idea and love the courtesy for the contest!

Jul 27, 2009 at 4:24 pm

This sounds like great :) I would love to come.

I am a designer. Looking to be more of a designer/developer. Thanks for letting me enter!

Jul 27, 2009 at 7:55 pm

I’m a freelance designer from Vancouver and I would love to attend this workshop.

Jul 27, 2009 at 10:00 pm

Holly cow, why would I? Why wouldn’t I? I have not had many opportunities to in my life to learn from many great UX/UI designers who have become before me and this would be a great opportunity to help both myself grow as a UX/UI designer as well as help me take the social network I am the designer for to the next level.

Thank you so much for offering up these… you are going to make 5 people really happy. I am just hoping one of those people will be me! :-)

I am starting to sound like a 14 year old teenager trying to win a pair of New Kids on the Block concert ticket? Yes, yes I am… damm… I will shut up now :-(.

Jul 27, 2009 at 10:23 pm

Wow, this would be so crucial for me sense I just got promoted to a full time design position at work instead of doing sysadmin stuff.

Jul 27, 2009 at 11:51 pm

This event would aid me on my web design skills for coding. I’m lagging right now and there’s so much resources out there.

Jul 28, 2009 at 2:48 am

As a freelance designer and an avid fan of this site, I know that delveUI would be an amazing experience!

Jul 28, 2009 at 5:16 am

Your blog is so cool… I like it very much.

Moving back into design and web publishing from years of other tech pursuits, to start my own web publishing & design business. I gotz2delve because I want to take my basic understanding of the concepts, methodologies, platforms, and technologies to the next level, and pending the smile of fortune upon me, like a sponge left in the kitchen sink, I shall delve, soak up, and create.

Jul 30, 2009 at 7:43 am

I would love to attend DelveUI. My company is starting a complete re-brand for all of our products and this would be most helpful to the development cycle.

Jul 30, 2009 at 8:17 am

This sounds great! I’d love to attend a conference with such forward thinking professionals. The material being covered can really help a designer like myself to gain a firm grasp on where web design is right now and where it is heading in the future. A conference like this greatly benefits the designer/ developer as well as their client. Pick me please!

Kevin May

Who could pass up a chance to learn more and become better at what they do. Currently being a freelance designer, I am always looking for new ideas and techniques. Would be an awesome experience. GL to everyone!

Hi Nick La, it’s a great opportunity to meet experts and have a cool learning time with them. I am doing the computer programming(two years) at El Paso Community College as a International Student and to me this could be a great chance to have a better knowledge in this background. I am Taekwondo Instructor but you know, I want to be good web developer. I hope to have your consideration and be a lucky gay jejeje…Thank you
