To break the designer / creator bias towards laptops (and desktops) while designing experiences on the web.
The web’s built on an open protocol, and was always meant to be an inclusive network. The requirements for consuming (and contributing to) content on the web are pretty straightforward — a web browser running on any device and an internet connection.
While we all understand this, our understanding doesn’t necessarily translate into an unbiased effort at crafting experiences on the web. More often than not, the web experience on mobile gets stifled, in turn affecting those whose window to the web are these devices in their pockets.
This talk will be based around my observation of where the state of web (and the community) is headed.
I am a co-founder of Miranj, a web design studio in New Delhi, and have been making websites for a few years now. I am a programmer at heart, who enjoys travelling, music, coffee and food, and has somehow managed to complete a couple of marathons this year.
