A carefully structured and readable website is always a delight for the eyes. As web pages have evolved we’ve seen the need to fill more space and hold more content than ever before.

Even when there is minimum interaction on a web page, its organization and layout plays a great role in defining the user experience. A combination of other factors also come into play including white space, typography and positioning, among others. Even the maintenance of websites is dependant to a great extent on the layout and hierarchy.

The Mumbai run up will cover topics on improvising Content Design and Layout for mobile web sites.

A framework for building data-driven interactive front-ends

Submitted Mar 4, 2015

We live in world of “big data”. However, the front-end for the “big data” age is the browser which cannot hold more than 1-5 MB of data at any given moment of time. The problem becomes more aggravated in mobiles where the bandwidth is even lower. How to build user interfaces that are data heavy and interactive in nature?

Outline

At Pykih, we have attempted to solve this problem with a Javascript Framework (PykQuery.js) that establishes a consistent way for our team to write data-driven interactive front-ends.
