A little more about Tim
Tim Smith is a user interface and web designer based in St. Paul, Minnesota. A natural host, Tim inspires people all over the world with his podcast, The East Wing, where he interviews some of the best from the web and creative industries.
When Tim isn't chatting on Twitter, organizing his next project or generally just geeking out, he's just as happy to be watching the Lakers or sipping some coffee, like a dude.
It's been my experience that side projects have the ability to elevate designer, developers and more to a different level. If you choose these wisely, they can sharpen existing skills and create new ones. This session will cover side projects that have helped me, why they've helped, and suggestions for what you could do.
