  • The Right Way to Wireframe

    by Russ Unger

    Get a behind the scenes look at the design process used by four different UX designers, all working to solve the exact same problem with the exact same set of requirements. We'll identify the right way--for you--to wireframe.

    This highly energetic session will provide an in-depth behind the scenes look at the process behind the design, including: research, IA/interaction design, wireframing/prototyping and visual design. The presentation will conclude with a time-lapse video of the entire process from start to finish and a comparative view of the similarities in the processes that each designer uses.

  • Shh!: What Librarians Know About Content Curation That Every Designer Should

    by Sherra M. Bell

    Thanks to web technology, an explosion of content showers us from every direction. Content curation is the buzzword de jour and on the surface seems as simple as aggregating and sharing interesting links and resources via various social media tools. The truth is, it’s not really quite that simple. Just ask a librarian…ever so quietly, of course.

    As professional curators, librarians and their guiding principles offer valuable insight into effectively curating collections that do more than add repurposed information to an already cluttered web.

    This talk outlines key concepts from library science that will help designers curate content better. Whether you are building killer websites, creating effective knowledge management tools, or driving mention-worthy social media conversations, this session will provide you with guiding principles you need to get it right.

    What you will learn:

    • Why information hoarding is no longer sustainable and gets less so by the day
    • Three things librarians know about curation that will help you design better for any user
    • How to marry content with design so that it lasts longer than a Kardashian marriage

    At 1:10pm to 1:20pm, Thursday 17th November

  • CSS3 OpenType: The New Web Typography Frontier

    by Thomas Phinney

    Web typography is changing dramatically thanks to browser support for @font-face and server-based fonts. Web designers now have thousands of font choices where they once had just a dozen. But beyond @font-face, CSS 3 introduces myriad new OpenType typographic controls, bringing a level of typographic precision to web design previously seen only in print.

    At 1:45pm to 2:30pm, Thursday 17th November

  • HTML5 - Hell yeah!

    by J Cornelius

    HTML5 isn't just about markup; there's a lot more to care about. This talk will cover "why" you should be using HTML5 today, clear up some of the confusion around what it is (and isn't), introduce you to some cool stuff you can use to impress your friends (and the marketing dept.), and how you can help make the web a just little bit better place for us all.
