The Future of Web Design

A session at HOW Interactive Design Conference (HIDC) 2014 — San Francisco

Wednesday 19th November, 2014

8:30am to 9:30am (PST)

This session with Chris Butler will put you ahead of the trends in web design so that you can position yourself for success.

It's time we reframed our entire concept of web development. First, in terms of widening the scope of what websites do today and second, in terms of understanding what web development as a discipline is becoming. Sophisticated web development is no longer about creating discreet applications, but doing information logistics.

In this session, Chris will explore the history and trajectory of web design and development and offer a glimpse of things to come.

3 Main Takeaways:
1. Front-end design techniques are stabilizing and are headed toward commoditization.
2. As web platforms become more complex, the use of APIs is becoming more central to web development. This is where information logistics comes in...
3. Designers can position themselves around the change.
