After working in the creative industries for 15 years, in a career that started in print design and spanned right through to web and mobile app design, Mike has learned some valuable lessons about staying creative under pressure, the design process, running a small design business and designing your own web application. He now takes to the stage to share his experiences and to reveal the 10 most important lessons that he's learned along the way.

We learn by dissecting the work of others, building our own tools, and later adding our own uniqueness. We’ll apply that thinking to designing flexible interfaces in an HTML5 and CSS3 world, exploring the process of crafting your own markup and style pattern library. What lessons can we learn from breaking websites into micro frameworks? What happens to these patterns under varying browsing conditions? Dan will share how patterns have helped him build bulletproof websites.
