Design Minds Converge on SMU Campus for Top Conference

DALLAS – May 25, 2010 – Bright business minds will converge on the campus on Southern Methodist University for the second annual Big Design Conference, May 28-29. LevelTen Interactive Director and President Tom McCracken is a featured speaker for the event, and plans to give a talk about agile development. Since 1999, McCracken has been an active member of the Dallas interactive community. LevelTen has encountered many changes in technology and workflow process over time, and has developed a proven, effective method for success. He will be sharing some insight about that process during the presentation. “Online trends are daunting, and website development has gotten dramatically more complex,” McCracken said. “To be successful, web developers must continually innovate and remain agile to meet client needs.” The Big Design Conference exists to harvest the biggest ideas in strategy, social media, user experience, and code development.
