  • Questions that make you squirm

    by Naomi Atkinson and Dan Rubin

    We all get them. Those awkward questions asked by clients that make us wriggle uncomfortably, fidget uncontrollably, or make us want to hang up the phone and blame it on the unexpected tropical storm in the middle of winter.

    Simply the mention of the word “fold”, “Can you give us three routes?” or that old chestnut “How long will it take?” is enough to send us all into fits.

    We’d like to share our thoughts and suggestions for answering these questions and others. Being prepared and having solid, confident replies (based on research, testing or known facts) can often be the solution to a project’s success and how much fun you — and your clients — have during it.

    At 8:20pm to 8:50pm, Friday 18th November

  • CreativeJS - beauty in the browser

    by Seb Lee-Delisle

    Now that Canvas and SVG are available natively in all major browsers, JavaScript developers have much to learn about creative visual programming.

    From particle systems to blending effects, optimised animations, gaming and good old maths creativity, Seb Lee-Delisle has more than a trick or two to share with us. If you’re interested in bringing a little visceral beauty to your websites, apps and games, then this is the session for you.

    At 9:00pm to 9:30pm, Friday 18th November

  • The Web As It Should Be

    by Martin Beeby

    With the advent of CSS3 and the ever-greater maturity of HTML5, it’s an exciting time for the Web. The possibilities for creating truly engaging – even addictive – Web and business applications appear limitless. And, with the release of Internet Explorer 9, Microsoft finally came in from the cold after many years in the world wide wilderness.

    As Internet Explorer moves towards full support of standards-based HTML5 and CSS3, Martin Beeby will demonstrate how these key technologies will be used to build and deliver the applications of tomorrow, engage end-users like never before, and generate even greater loyalty to Web-sites.

    At 10:00pm to 10:15pm, Friday 18th November

  • Accessibility doesn't exist

    by Chris Mills

    Accessibility is just a matter of passing the WCAG conformance criteria, or bolting on an accessibility widget to your existing site. But it is costly. Right? Spare me! Accessibility is a very misunderstood discipline. In this talk, Chris Mills will share his opinions on the subject including sensible approaches to testing, using conformance criteria and online tools, building accessibility around cost and environment limitations, and good old common sense. He will also argue that real accessibility isn't just about people with disabilities, and that accessibility - as a separate discipline - shouldn't in fact exist at all.

    At 10:15pm to 10:45pm, Friday 18th November
