Taxonomy of Touch

A session at YUIConf 2010

Tuesday 9th November, 2010

1:45pm to 2:45pm (PST)

You may now use direct manipulation for fun and profit. Finger replaces mouse. Direct replaces indirect. Users swipe, flick, pinch and tap where recently they clicked and clicked and clicked. And it's not just for phones anymore.

But some things don't change: Complexity accumulates and must be engineered down. Idioms emerge and diverge, and standards must arise. Normalization is necessary and tooling is needed. As the new outcroppings of touch appear on the landscape, YUI will once again lend a hand, joining forces with us all to tackle these challenges in the service of our users. In this session we'll survey the current landscape of touch across multiple devices and use cases. We'll identify where patterns are emerging, where YUI is engaging, and where we can all get involved.
