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.

Beginner's Guide to Web UI Engineering

Submitted Mar 21, 2012

With an overwhelming amount of resources available, it’s a little confusing for beginners to decide what to learn first, and from where. A quick introduction to common areas, technologies and what to use when. (From the obvious HTML/CSS/JS to Boilerplates/Pre-processors etc.)

Meant for anyone (Designers/Programmers/Managers) who want to get familiarized with web concepts.

*If kept as one of the first few sessions at the event, it might help beginners pick next sessions/tracks better. :)

Outline

‘What’ is the technology/tool about.
‘Why’ is it needed (and where in the process).
‘How’ to get started.

Requirements

None

Speaker bio

Someone who has worked with wide variety of UI frameworks/tools & can quickly cover most of what a beginner should know about.
