Are you in the local seattle area and interested in the technical side of search engine optimization? E.g. Implementation/ operational best practices, design patterns, site reviews, etc? Then you should come check out one of the upcoming events being hosted by Jane & Robot in May. Each event will have a couple 15 minute talks by a local expert, time for Q&A, and then a couple in depth site reviews. (not to mention free beer and snacks!)
Tuesday, May 13th @ 6pm
Solo Bar, 200 Roy Street, Seattle Sponsored by Microsoft, so they’ll be providing lots of swag in addition to food and drinks. Vanessa Fox will be talking about how a search engine works, and someone from Microsoft will talk about ASP.Net and Silverlight best practices. Then we’ll do the Q&A, site reviews and have general networking time.
