Mobilism speaker change and workshops · 3 May 2013 · PPK
In two weeks' time the third edition of Mobilism will take place in Amsterdam. Tickets are still available; in fact, as Peter-Paul Koch recently wrote, ticket sales have not been overwhelming this year and we've had to economise. That's why we will sit down and think hard about Mobilism's future once the conference is done and dusted.
Still, this year the conference will run as usual on 16th and 17th of May, with 15th of May dedicated to workshops.
As to the workshops, we offer the following ones:
- Max Firtman on mobile HTML5
- Josh Clark on designing for touch
- Hands-on workshops about Firefox OS and BlackBerry 10 (cancelled on May 7)
Max's and Josh's workshops are one full day and cost 300 euros. The two hands-on workshops are half day, and a ticket for both of them costs 150 euros. There are still tickets for all workshops, although Max's will sell out pretty quickly.
Anyway, we hope to see you in two weeks in Amsterdam!
Finalising our programme · 4 April 2013 · Krijn
In six weeks Mobilism, the conference we started two years ago, will take place in Amsterdam for the third time. Today we're finalising our programme with two more speakers and three extra half-day web app development workshops on the Wednesday before the conference.
- Martin Kool, mad scientist at the Dutch Q42, will present a case study about a successful cross platform HTML5 game. Yes, they do exist. Martin will show us how they picked their framework of choice, handled cross-platform development and used HTML5 mobile constraints as a benefit. He'll also cover marketing, launch and post-launch and share all their in-depth sales details per appstore.
With these two names added to our line-up, we now have the following programme for the 16th and 17th of May:
- Console Browsers: The Ultimate Torture Test, by Anna Debenham
- Context, Bloody Context, by Cennydd Bowles
- Mobile Web Design Anti-Patterns, by Dave Shea
- Accessibility on Mobile, by Derek Featherstone
- Rendering without lumpy bits, by Jake Archibald
- Hot Topics panel, with Jeremy Keith
- Scale and adapt: A story of how we built Responsive BBC News, by John Cleveley
- Beyond Mobile: Where No Geek Has Gone Before, by Josh Clark
- A Successful Cross Platform HTML5 Game, From Shaping To Shipping, by Martin Kool
- Responsible Responsive Images, by Mat Marquis
- Breaking Limits on Mobile HTML5, by Max Firtman
- Developing for touch, by Peter-Paul Koch
- The State of WebRTC, by Rob Hawkes
- What you don't know will hurt you: Designing with and for existing content, by Sara Wachter-Boettcher
- The New Photoshop, Part 2: The Revenge of The Web, by Stephen Hay
- If it doesn't load in under a second, it's broken, by Thomas Fuchs
On top of that, Tim Kadlec will make sure the Q&A after each talk will be an interesting part as well. He'll collect questions on Twitter during the talks, so he can interview all speakers for a few minutes.
This year we tried to select more practical, diverse and in-depth topics than last years and we think we've managed to keep up with that idea. Are you convinced as well? We've still got some tickets!
In addition to the conference on Thursday and Friday, we've got workshops scheduled on Wednesday. And we even added three hands-on web app workshops for three up-and-coming operating systems: Firefox OS, BlackBerry 10, and Tizen (cancelled on May 7).
Three speakers and two workshops · 13 March 2013 · PPK
Mobilism is getting mobiler and mobiler, if that's proper English – and even if it isn't. Today we have three new speakers and two workshops to announce.
In addition, we've added most of the topics to our programme. The three speakers we're adding to the line-up today are:
- Cennydd Bowles, user experience designer at Twitter, will talk about context, and how mobile context is usually not what people think. Implausible scenarios involving public transport, anyone?
- Rob Hawkes, formerly of Mozilla, will get us up to speed with WebRTC and its promise for the future. Network gods willing, there will even be a demo.
- John Cleveley, tech lead at the BBC, will discuss how the BBC met the challenge of the current device explosion with responsive design, attention to performance, and tools.
We have two more speakers to announce, for a total of 16 sessions. It's shaping up nicely, isn't it? And we still have tickets left.
The day before the conference, 15th of May, we will organise two workshops:
- Designing for Touch, by Josh Clark. Now that touchscreens are everywhere you have to design for them. But how? Handheld touchscreen design introduces ergonomic concerns that are new to many digital designers; it’s no longer just how your pixels look but also how they feel. Josh will explain it all.
- Mobile HTML5, by Max Firtman. He will treat mobile browsers, and how to create successful mobile applications for the browser and for native and fullscreen apps, paying attention to device APIs, proxy browsers, debugging, power consumption, and many more topics that just don't occur on the desktop.
Tickets for the workshops are 300 euros and include lunch.
