  • Google Doodles: Burning Man to Pac-Man and Beyond

    by Ryan Germick and Marcin Wichary

    With over 700 fun and geeky custom logos adorning Google’s international homepages, "doodles" have become synonymous with the Google brand. Through a visual feast of never-before-seen high-res art and outtakes, this presentation will examine the history, popularity, and controversy of Google doodles from the perspective of the small team of artists and developers who create them. This being SXSW Interactive, we will highlight the ingenuity behind special doodles like the playable Pac-Man and animated Rube Goldberg/Fourth of July doodles. We also will take a look behind the scenes of the H.G. Wells mystery doodles, the week that the Sesame Street muppets took over Google, the action-packed Olympics series, and more ways we play on our homepage. Finally, we’ll touch on the feedback we receive, lessons learned, the Doodle4Google children’s art competition, what it takes to be a Google Doodler, and the future of Google doodles.

  • Web Anywhere: Mobile Optimisation With HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript

    by Bruce Lawson

    Web apps, mobile phone apps, websites that work anywhere, SVG, HTML5, Widgets, location-aware sites, Media Queries. Beyond the buzzword assault is a revolution in the way sites are made, what they can do, and how they are accessed.

    We're going to talk about what the buzzwords actually mean and how they all fit together. We'll explore different methodologies for making websites that users can access on mobile phones and other devices, and how to optimize your existing website for mobile. Then we'll put all the buzzwords together into a coherent vision that works now, with real code snippets that you can use right away.

    Finally, we get out our crystal balls out and look at what's coming around the corner in HTML5 and the W3C APIs that allow websites to access native capabilities on devices.

  • Web Designer's Guide to iOS Apps

    by Kristofer Layon

    This book session is about how web designers can use HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript to build native iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad applications. By leveraging their existing skills, web designers can do the same specialized and content-specific work for Apple’s mobile platforms as they do for the web. And by combining their design skills with the NimbleKit code framework (the only Objective-C library that is featured as an Apple Development Tool), designers can focus exclusively on interface and content design without needing to write Objective-C. Don’t just emulate the iOS look and feel with other options: use NimbleKit, HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript to create fully native Objective-C apps for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

    At 10:00am to 11:00am, Monday 14th March

    In Ballroom G, Austin Convention Center
