    by Josh Clark

    From first concept to polished pixel, learn to create iPhone and iPad apps that delight. The workshop explores the practical principles of mobile and touchscreen design, teaching you to “think iPhone” by planning and creating app interfaces in tune with the psychology and ergonomics of an audience on the go. You’ll learn to conceive and refine an app’s interface and user experience in tune with the needs of a mobile audience… and their fingers and thumbs.

  • Designing Your Framework With Compass & Sass

    by Brandon Mathis

    HTML5, CSS3, and the explosion of mobile browsing have redefined our role as web designers. The game has changed and we must be ready to change with it.

  • Get started with HTML5 and CSS3

    by Aaron Gustafson

    In this in-depth workshop, Aaron Gustafson will drop mad HTML5 & CSS3 science and cram your brain full of practical ways you can put these two emerging technologies to use immediately. The first half of the day will be a whirlwind tour of HTML5, covering everything from its semantic shifts to its accessibility enhancements to the new APIs it introduces for JavaScript. In the second half of the day, he’ll school you on the latest CSS3 techniques, showing you how to integrate the latest and greatest design advancements into your own work. You’ll want to bring a laptop to this one as Aaron has quite a few hands-on exercises planned to help you hone your skills.

    At 9:00am to 5:00pm, Wednesday 9th November

  • The Ideal Workflow

    by Sarah B Nelson

    Wireframe, code, design, deploy, test? If you google “design process” you’ll find hundreds of handy workflow diagrams that describe an ideal workflow. Process diagrams and carefully detailed plans make people feel good. The only problem is that few of these workflows have ever survived an encounter with a real project.

    Here’s why. Creative processes aren’t linear. They are messy. Development is messy. People are messy. And that’s ok.

    In this workshop, participants will turn a diagnostic lens on their own process. Together, we’ll examine current workflow practices and expose the structures, assumptions, and values inherent in them. From there, each participant will develop a plan for improving — or radically re-working — the design process of their own practice or organization.

    At 9:00am to 5:00pm, Wednesday 9th November
