Speakers - Front End
Andy Clarke - Andy Clarke has been called a lot of things since he started working on the web ten years ago. His ego likes words like "ambassador for CSS", "industry prophet" and "inspiring", but actually he is most proud that Jeffrey Zeldman once called him a "(tripe talented) bastard".
Andy took ten months of his life to write the best-selling Transcending CSS: The Fine Art of Web Design, but his passion is amazing web design. He loves designing for the web, writing about design and teaching it at workshops and conferences all over the world.
Now he is pulling all of the passions together to create For A Beautiful Web, a unique series of web design master classes that cover topics including visual design and best-practice use of technologies.

Simon Collison - Simon (http://colly.com) is a freelance web designer, developer, author, speaker, and consultant with over a decade of experience at the sharp end.
His last big adventure saw him co-founding Erskine Design back in 2006, and the agency was runner-up in the .net awards design agency of the year category in 2009.
Simon recently left Erskine to pursue new and exciting challenges, which he can't talk about yet. In an un-related note, despite hailing from Nottingham, he loves the North-East.
