UX Design for the web is a hot topic, but we find it too hard to pin down so we just touch the surface and don't explore the why of user experience. As it is becoming something of a de-facto standard it is in our best interest as interactive designers to understand the discipline. No longer something that has to always be hugely complex and costly, we'll cover the back-to-basics approach to UX design in this workshop and how to practically dispatch a rock solid responsive web design UX deliverables package.

HTML5 offers lots of new types of interaction. These new more powerful interactions mean we have a greater set of solutions available to us. But with great power comes great responsibility. In this session Joe Leech will share his experience with user research to show just because we can use sliders & spinners doesn't mean we should. You'll learn how to use the new features of HTML5 so that you and your users get the absolute most from them.

With the rise of mobile we, as web designers, now have a few more things to worry about. No longer can we simply concern ourselves with browsers and screen resolutions. These are no the only things that impact how our design will be accessed. Now the physical environment in which our UX is used plays a huge role in the design process. Web design is not just about building websites. Its about providing relevant content and functionality to the user within the context in which they are accessing our services. In this talk Rob looks at how to understand your users context and the potential implications for the services that we provide.
Phil Libin, CEO of Evernote, said that "in a world of infinite software choice, people gravitate towards the products with the best overall user experience." But how do we define, create and perfect ‘user experience’ in our web apps? In this talk we'll examine the very best web apps from around the world, analysing design trends and the latest development techniques, and taking away practical tips to help create a wonderful user experience in our own applications.We'll also discover that the choices designers and developers make every day can illicit powerful emotional responses in users. By understanding how our work affects user experience we can start to build web apps that users have a positive relationship with, turning 'great' into 'awesome' and 'usable' into 'joyful' along the way.
