I've been designing for print for fifteen years, designing for the web for a relatively short four years and running a web design business for only 6 months. I've learnt a lot along the way and some of it is worth sharing.

Hacking, not cracking. The internet is a wonderful place. A network of computers. Information at your fingertips. Learn how to use some of this information in projects for yourself or for your clients. Some of this data is easily available and within your reach. Learn the kind of things you can do with it and how it is useful in the real world.

The future of the Web is a dangerous Babylon: people talking to each other to do business, organise revolutions, express their feelings, meet their friends, transcend their disabilities and economically empower themselves. Obviously, this must be stopped. Bruce will show you his top tips and tricks that you can employ to destroy the web
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.
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.
In which Relly tells a cautionary tale or two about the perils of ignoring web content when creating for the web. Will include references to anime murderous robots, Power Rangers, Nyan cat, Maru and slash fiction. Oh, and content strategy too.
Giving something back to the web and open-source is easier than you think. In this talk, Darren will tell you why you should, and how you can.

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.

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.
Drinks and networking till 1am (at least!)
The bar will be open all evening but once the talking stops the bar is free! Get your fill, once it's gone it's gone! :)
