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.
