Vitaly Friedman – Smart Interface Design Patterns

You’re a smart cookie. If someone asks you to build a responsive accordion, you’ll figure it out. The same goes for a table. Or a calendar. Or, God forbid, a multi-level-mega-drop-down. But how would you go around slightly more complicated components?

What if you had to build a sophisticated car configurator with a real-time updated 3D view? What about an advanced mortgage calculator? How about a feature comparison table, a music festival schedule, an election map, an airfare booking and check-in, a live world football championship leaderboard and a theatre map seat selection? In this session, we’ll take a microscopic examination of common interface components and problems appearing in responsive user interfaces.

We’ll cover them all: both from the design and from the development perspective — with a dash of obscure and creative approaches. Keep in mind: you won’t be able to unsee the things you’ll see in this session. Yes, it’s going to be dirty, tricky, and horribly annoying at times. You’ll leave with a toolbox of practical techniques that you’ll be able to apply to your work right away. And potentially some tips for saving money on airfare, too!

10:30 – 11:15

Charlotte Dann – Pixels, IRL

Most digital designers and developers don’t get the joyous experience of touching and feeling the things they’ve created. Interest in generative art on the web is at an all-time high, but predominantly confined to digital spaces, screens and pixels. In this talk Charlotte will champion the joy of tactility by demonstrating a handful of ways you can use your coding skills to make art in a physical space.

Eli Schutze Ramirez – What Is the Deal With Internationalisation?

While about 51% of the world’s websites are in English, only about 25% of web users are English speakers. With half of the world’s population online, internationalisation is as relevant as ever. Let’s explore what i18n means, how it gets made on the web, and what we should keep in mind or avoid when making the web more accessible to the world.

Lightning Talks

A series of lightning talks covering a variety of topics.

15:15 – 16:00

Asim Hussain – Principles of Green Application Architecture Design

Grey apps are unfit and lazy, ripe for disruption. Green apps are leaner, faster, cheaper, more battery efficient, and smarter.

With increased regulation, Green apps also have a competitive advantage: you can use Green apps everywhere, unlike their Grey counterparts. In this talk, I’ll present the foundations of what makes an application Green. I’ll also demonstrate how this results in a leaner application that runs faster and is cheaper to build.

You’ll walk away tooled up and ready to build a lean, Green, money-making machine.

In this talk, I’ll go through something I’m working on in collaboration (hopefully) with the other clouds: an agreement on the core principles of what it means to be a Green application.
