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).
