Artists and designers, there’s a new way to paint! CSS3 is the latest and greatest and the cool kids are already using it. But there’s new syntax to memorize and not all browsers are equally capable of rendering the effects you create. How will your workflow change? What are the benefits of this evolved web standard for development time, SEO, accessibility and site performance? What can you use on the web and in mobile development right now? Where should you wait?
In this session you’ll learn about progressive design principles, the new capabilities of CSS, time-saving tools to aid as you visually write the code, as well as a variety of methods to tame incapable browsers when it’s absolutely necessary. Learn CSS3 tricks and techniques—all based on the experience of a real-world front-end developer. Welcome to the next generation of web design!
How can we design interactions that encourage specific behaviors?
As designers, we work hard to provide powerful features in our applications, but if users don’t take advantage, it’s all waste. We have to extend our designer’s toolkit, leveraging the latest thinking from psychology.
In this hands on workshop, Stephen P. Anderson (Poet Painter) will guide you through specific examples of sites who’ve designed serendipity, arousal, rewards, and other seductive elements into their applications, especially during the post-signup period, when it’s so easy to lose people. He’ll demonstrate how to engage your users through a process of playful discovery, which is vital whether you make consumer applications or design for the corporate environment.
