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.

More about the event:

Bridging the Designer/Developer divide

Submitted Mar 21, 2012

Discuss how the Designer/Developer gap is bridged at different organizations/particular projects. Share tips & experiences on how designers can make more developer-friendly deliverables (Responsive design, detailed interactions etc.) and how developers can better understand designer’s goals & concerns (“How flexible is this layout?”, usability issues etc.)


From interactive low-fi prototypes to designing straight in the browser, explore & share (pros & cons of) different approaches.

Have a mixed panel with Developer(s) & Designer(s) who’ve worked in varied teams/projects.

Have a few topics decided to kick start the discussion - with inputs from the audience. Then have an open session with questions/discussions as the time permits.

*Could be followed by a more specific session: Design for Developers (2 Similar sessions in Funnel) and Kickstarting Web Design (ie. Front-end engineering) for Designers (Just an introductory session)


Nothing to bring along, but a mixed audience (designers + developers) will be needed.

Also, a moderator to ensure the discussions are on track.

Speaker bio

Would like someone to volunteer (a developer & a designer?)

JavaScript + MVC + NodeJS + Mobile = Mojito

Why have your web application in all languages (Java / PHP / Python / Ruby) on Server, JavaScript on client… why not everything in one language? MVC on server + MVC on client.. yikes! more
