Meta Refresh 2012

Web design could use some new ideas. We have the tech now.

HTML5 and CSS3 have very quickly moved from being tentative new standards to the base standards for every major desktop and mobile browser. HTML5 is now just HTML, a modular, living standard that no longer needs a version number.

Now that we are no longer fighting over platforms, it’s time to put the specs aside and revisit the construction of user interface: how do we raise the bar for stellar user interface on the web?

Meta Refresh is a follow-up to DocType HTML5 from 2010-11 and is a conference on web UI engineering.

A design primer for developers

Submitted Mar 9, 2012

Two objectives:
First, give developers a sense of how designers approach problems
Second, to encourage developers to take ownership of design as a fundamental part of web app development.

It is not somebody else’s problem.

Outline

This session is not meant to turn developers into designers, it is meant to have them apply design principles to web app and interface design. As coders, we already understand elegance and simplicity in a very scientific and logical way. I’m going to attempt to illustrate how to use that to build better apps.
