Full-day workshop with Jeremy Keith
This workshop will show you how to think in a progressive way that works with the grain of the web. Together we’ll peel back the layers of the web and build upwards, creating experiences that work for everyone while making the best of cutting-edge browser technologies. From URL design to Progressive Web Apps, this journey will cover each stage of technological advancement. Best of all, you’ll leave the workshop with a fresh way of seeing your work.
The web is a design medium like no other. We can design and develop sites that take full advantage of the latest browser features on the newest devices, while still ensuring that the core content is available to everyone, regardless of their browser, device, or network connection.
Attendees will learn how to see beneath the surface layer of interfaces and interrogate the real value that users are looking for: instead of starting with swiping, clicking, dragging or dropping, we’ll think about shopping, sharing, reading and writing. Then the interactive enhancements can be layered on top.
This workshop is for designers and developers. There won’t be much hands-on code though. The concepts are more important than the code.
You won’t need a computer. We’ll use pen and paper. And our brains.
Tea and coffee are served during registration and all breaks. Breakfast rolls are available during registration, with pastries during morning breaks. Full day workshoppers get a buffet lunch and afternoon cake.
Jeremy Keith lives in Brighton, England where he makes websites with the splendid design agency Clearleft. You may know him from such books as DOM Scripting, Bulletproof Ajax, HTML5 For Web Designers, Resilient Web Design, and, most recently, Going Offline.
