Getting touchy - Introduction to touch and pointer events

A session at McrFRED 13

Thursday 24th April, 2014

6:30pm to 7:30pm (GMT)

Beyond smartphones and tablets, touchscreens are finding their way into laptops and even desktop computers.

With hardware support for touch becoming increasingly ubiquitous, it’s time to explore what new possibilities are available to developers.

Patrick’s talk will cover the basics of handling touch events – from making sure simple single-tap interactions are as responsive as possible, all the way to full multitouch, gesture-enabled, cross-browser interfaces.
