  • What every web designer should know: A better you at what you do

    by Jeffrey Zeldman

    When “everyone is a designer,” what does it mean to be a web or UX designer? The rules of design engagement are changing. You may no longer be in control of the user’s visual experience. Succeeding in today’s web is more challenging than it has been in a decade. Yet challenges are opportunities, and today is the best time in over a decade to create websites and applications. Learn the skills and opportunities facing every designer today, from mobile and small screen strategy (and the difference between them) to the design principles of HTML5. Then put your best practices into practice by identifying collaborative and growth opportunities at your job.

  • Developer/Designer Toolbox

    by Chad Ostroff

    In every creative field, there are certain tools that one always keeps handy in order to get the job done. As developers (who also design) the toolbox inventory needs to be broad to encompass all the necessary areas to keep you moving and productive. In this session a list of resources that should be included in any developer's toolbox will be featured. The list will be broken down into different categories to help keep tools organized for quick access. Categories will be Design, HTML/HTML5, CSS/CSS3, Grids, jQuery, WordPress, Joomla, Cross-browser testing and other. Other will include browser add-ons, text editors, ftp, local development environments and snippet libraries.

    At 2:00pm to 3:30pm, Thursday 15th September
