T3CON09 Site is a

Category: Boarding, please

By: Peter Pröll

Finally the T3CON09-Website is launched. It took quite a while. The reason: it is already in a whole new design!

Starting today you can register for T3CON09 in Frankfurt .... and at the same time we do have a look at what the new reorganized and redesigned and .com could look and feel like in future! And there are many features to be discovered:

  • Try the sitemap button just on the right upper corner next to the searchbox!
  • Check out the login & register functionality!
  • See the domain switcher just below the login section!
  • Check out the "social network connectors" in the appropriate section!

And many, many more. There have been invested huge efforts in building up all this and that really deserves a tt_clap for you guys @ dkd!

AND NOW: Please spread the word for T3CON09 in Frankfurt using the banners and twitter it, blog it, spam it ;-), do whatever you think is good to push the ticket sale!

If you have some issues, proposals and ideas or even want to spend applause ;-) for the T3CON09 website and the new look and feel - add a comment to this post here.

Hope you love it as much as I do!


UPDATE: Please contact the hotel directly at +49 (0)69 68020 to get a room and mention the keyword TYPO3. You get a reduced rate!! If you take the central reservation hotline they will tell you the hotel is already fully booked.

Impressive work! The new website looks really cool. Beware, it seems the sitemap has problem at the moment.

Looks good so far. The permanent scrolling is a bit annoying. Additionally, there's a minor CSS problem; have a look at the screenshot:

Looks very nice, maybe a slightly excessive use of rollovers. It's also very slow, but I hope that's due only to the server.

As advised, I tried the sitemap button, but could see absolutely nothing (tried with both FF3 and Safari 4 on Mac).

the sitemap lacks because of a strange realurl issue - it drop the type from url. Without realurl all works fine.
Also slow - it's mostly because of the sponsors iframe. i will suggest them to cache that.
The scrolling on start page can be interrupted - clci on the square on the right to stop

Congrats on the launch of the website. It has some cool ideas and features; for example, I like the domain switcher. No problems with the sitemap on Opera 9, but many small mispositionings (overlapping content) all around the site, which is an indicator for markup that's focused too much on single pixel placement in a single browser (I'd guess Firefox ;). Plus, the search box in the upper right is messed up badly.

9 errors in the W3C validator should be a no go, expecially if the majority of them are nesting errors or missing type parameters in a style tag.

Some elements need to be re-thought in terms of usability. Two examples: The search form in the middle of the content is pretty useless since no one will recognize it's a search form. It looks like a graphical element, particularly like a news headline "without words". Users that are looking for the search function will look for an element like that in the upper right corner and use that. Users that thoroughly read the contents of the site will find the search bar, but won't be looking for a search box adn thus won't use it.

Then there is the legend for the news item's age. It looks awfully much like a page browser. I even clicked on it to see the items that are "7 days old", thinking it was some kind of archive. By web experience, elements that look like this are clickable, much like underlined text is always a link. Never underline text that's not a link. Never use an existing and established look to display something else.

The site looks great guys, and so do the sessions of the T3CON09. I can't wait to get to Frankfurt.

Good luck on getting this design in the site!

Nice new look.

Buying tickets in IE 7/8 does not work?
Does work in chrome

When is the detailed schedule of each day available?
