  • Creating Responsive HTML5 Touch Interfaces

    by Stephen Woods

    The proliferation of touch-based mobile phones and tablets means that users are accustomed to using touch gestures navigate - but so far primarily on native applications – how about web content? Creating responsive touch interfaces in HTML5 is not just possible, but its an amazing evolution of web user interfaces. At Flickr we've learned that because of the nature of touch events, the "feel" of the interface is more important than performance by the numbers. This session will guide you through how to create touch interfaces, with a focus on interfaces that FEEL responsive. Topics covered will include device support, hardware acceleration and handling complex gestures. We'll also focus on how to prioritize the work done in JavaScript so that the interface feels as responsive as possible.

  • Design and the Mobile Startup

    by Mike Krieger, Ron Goldin, Alexa Andrzejewski and Alex Rainert

    In the evolution of a product, ideas are the seed but the execution is key, and what happens between those two stages can make or break a product's success. Designers are trained to think on their feet, be flexible, and not be afraid to start over or make mistakes. Similarly the key tenets of today's startup culture are to be lean, move quickly, and iterate often. In this environment, where risk and competition make innovation critical, companies must leverage design thinking to help define products, often by adapting the design process. In this multidisciplinary panel of technologists, designers, and entrepreneurs, key players in some of today's most successful mobile products will look at the "textbook" creative process in delivering user-centered results and delightful outcomes. Then, we'll talk about examples of what actually happens in the less black-and-white world of startup culture, and discuss what can be done to leverage design in the making of great products.

  • Austin 2032: Shaping Future Cities with Mobile Data

    by Alexander Howard, Chris Osgood, Eric Paulos and Chris Volinsky

    The ubiquity of mobile devices gives us an unprecedented view into human mobility. Smartphones of today provide precise information on location, orientation, and trajectories of their users. Study of anonymized, aggregate collections of data allow insight into human behavior that can greatly benefit our understanding of society while preserving individual privacy rights.

    In this panel we discuss the promise and implications of analyzing mobile device data on a massive scale, specifically towards improving the cities of the future. The goal of almost any urban planner and policy maker is to make cities more user-friendly and more sustainable. Traditionally, improvement initiatives have slow feedback loops. Aggregate mobile data allows for fast understanding of the impact of any policy changes (such as installing bike lanes or congestion pricing), encouraging more of a test-and-learn environment, and ramping up city efficiency.

    Our panel will contain a diverse set of people who can address different aspects of this issue: researchers and data analysts to discuss what we can learn from the data, network carriers to discuss the technologies and infrastructure needed, and policy makers who can address the potential impact of this data.
