  • HTML5 and Human Interaction

    by Martin Beeby

    It's become common place for humans to interact with computers by touching, speaking and moving. Apps on devices are providing these experiences to users, but are website being left behind? In many instances websites are being developed solely for mouse and keyboard input. In this short talk we will look at how you can use your web skills to create sites that work on touch devices like the iPad, iPhone or Windows 8, whilst ensuring they also operate on desktops with mouse and pen.

  • Failing and Doing It Well

    by Mark Boulton

    In 2008, Mark sat down with his wife over dinner to discuss taking on a project that could make or break his business. A project that – if it went wrong – would do it in front of half a million people. The fear of failure came down to a coin toss; risk it, or not. Mark will share his thoughts and experiences from that day and others on how failure, and not the fear of it, should be an integral part of your life. How failure will make you a better designer, a better coworker or manager, so you can help create company cultures where it's not just OK to screw up: it's expected.

    At 5:00pm to 5:40pm, Wednesday 16th May
