Recent implementation of HTML5 features in modern browsers allow for greater design control and creativity in our Web sites. HTML5 introduces a number of new elements and attributes that reflect typical usage on modern Web sites, including new functionality for audio and video elements as well as HTML5 form elements. But what else is new?
Kimberly Blessing reveals what attendees need to re-learn about HTML and how to incorporate new HTML5 elements to embrace their new markup future.
Artists and designers, there’s a new way to paint! CSS3 is the latest and greatest and all the cool kids are already using it. But there’s new CSS syntax to memorize and not all browsers are equally capable of the effects you create. How will your workflow change? What are the benefits of this evolved web standard for development time and site speed? What can you use right now? What still needs more time?
In this session you’ll learn about progressive design principles, the new capabilities of CSS, time-saving tools to aid as you visually write the code, as well as a variety of methods to tame incapable browsers when it’s absolutely necessary. Put down the crayons, it's time to paint like a pro!
Responsive Design Session
Our sites are accessed by an increasing array of devices and browsers, and our users deserve a quality experience no matter how large (or small) their display. Are our designs ready? In this session, we’ll learn how to incorporate fluid grids, flexible images, and media queries to create adaptive, responsive designs that optimize their display to better fit our visitor’s viewing context.

Microformats are simple HTML design patterns you can follow to add semantics to your web content. With additional semantic meaning, your content becomes more findable, extensible, standards-compliant and usable. Some of the biggest sites on the web today use microformats for these reasons, including Google, Yahoo!, Facebook and Twitter, just to name a few. And you can too! After taking this workshop, you'll be armed with what you need to start publishing microformats right away.
Emily Lewis, author of Microformats Made Simple, will discuss the semantic history of microformats, as well as benefits, tools and resources. But the focus will be on the practical application of microformats using semantic markup (POSH): link-based microformats, XFN, hCard and hCalendar. Emily will also discuss what HTML5's microdata means for microformats, and how the concepts learned with microformats can extend to accessibility with ARIA roles.
Advanced CSS3 Session
by Greg Rewis
In this session, we take a look at all of the possibilities and explore what works and where from the simplest hover effects, to creative usability enhancements and the sure-to-be-popular spinning corporate logo! It¹s all about the movement, baby!
Emotional Interface Design Session
Humans, though cute and cuddly, are not without their flaws, which makes designing for them a challenge. By understanding how the wet, mushy processor works in these hairy little devils, you can design interfaces and web experiences that will have them hopelessly devoted to your brand.
Design Research Session
At the end of each day, we are having a light 30 minute panel Q+A discussion with that day's available speakers. The Wrap-Up Panel is a good opportunity to have more time with speakers and get answers to any last minute questions that you didn't have a chance ask earlier during a presentation or ask new questions that came up after working through another speaker's presentation.
