Event Details

The Motion to be Debated:

All Web Designers Must Learn To Code

To code or not to code? The fate of your career may hinge on answering that very question. 

The issue will be settled once and for all by the power of rhetoric and reason! HTML haters, Developer devotees, code enthusiast, print aficionados, creative quarrel baiters, arguers of aestehtics, bystanders, fence-sitters, the decisive and the indecisive alike — all are welcome! But be warned, you may be swayed. 

Design Debate Club is an Oxford-style debate, pitting two teams of three designers against each other, wielding nothing but their good sense and oratory ability. 


The Precedings:

Opening vote: Audience chooses to side For the motion, Against the Motion, or Undecided.

Round 1 : Opening Statements

Round 2 : Rebuttle

Round 3 : Floor Speeches (Audience jumps in the Brawl)

Round 4 : Closing Statements

Closing Vote : Audience votes again and winner is meaured by which side has swayed more votes.
