Apress and Springer Nature Exhibiting at SXSW Interactive 2016

Apress editor Susan McDermott will be in the Springer Nature booth at the SXSW Interactive Festival taking place in Austin, TX Friday, March 11 through Tuesday, March 15. Focused on highlighting cutting-edge technologies and digital creativity, the 2016 event is comprised of five days of presentations and panels on emerging technology, networking events hosted by industry leaders, and special programs showcasing the best new websites, video games, and startup ideas.

Susan and the Springer Nature team will be in Booth #1139 in the Austin Convention Center exhibit hall. Booth activities will include a daily FitBit raffle and a “Wheel of Fortune” game with prizes such as Free Trials, Frisbees, earbuds, mobile chargers, and more.

Apress Author Meet & Greet

On Tuesday, March 15, the Apress/Springer team is hosting Happy Hour from 4-5pm at Booth #1139. The first 25 people to attend will receive a free signed book from two-time Apress author Sian Morson (@xianamoy), CEO of Kollective Mobile. Sian’s book Designing for iOS with Sketch is the go-to guide for learning and adding Sketch3 to your workflow. Her second title, Learn Design for iOS Development, teaches you how to design your apps to work with the exciting and new iOS.

We are actively interested in publishing around the topics at SXSW. Stop by the booth during exhibit hours if you are interested in writing, and connect with Susan and the Springer Nature team. They can tell you about the editorial process, provide you with proposal guidelines, and offer feedback on potential topics.

We look forward to seeing you there!
