Designing and Developing for the Future of Mobile
Garrett Murray
The future of the mobile Web is here: WebKit. This premiere mobile browser is appearing in more and more devices and allows for amazingly detailed, fully functional mobile web sites. Come hear real-world advice, tricks, and strategies for designing and developing contextually relevant, beautiful, and fast-loading mobile sites.
1:30pm-4:30pm (3h) Workshop
Secrets of JavaScript Libraries
John Resig (Mozilla Corporation)
This talk will delve into the secret techniques used by JavaScript library authors to create comprehensive libraries that work seamlessly across browser environments.

Everything discussed will be backed up with publicly available, rock-solid, code.
9:00am-12:00pm (3h) Design & UX, Workshop
Rich UX Documentation
John Yesko (Roundarch)
As web sites are moving further away from the “page” metaphor and toward more interactive 2.0 experiences, designers are faced with moving beyond the wireframe and site map. We need to be able to communicate more fluid interfaces and interactions. Sometimes this means documenting very detailed functionality and almost infinite “states,” or representing motion in a static medium.
1:30pm-4:30pm (3h) Design & UX, Workshop
Designing for Community
Joshua Porter (Performable)
In this talk, Josh Porter will cover the bases of designing for community. You'll be armed with a valuable set of practices to implement with your own communities.

Scalable Web Architectures: Common Patterns and Approaches
Cal Henderson (Yahoo!)
Everyone's doing it—the poster children for "Web 2.0" are built on top of the LAMP stack. The next generation of web-based applications are built with free tools, with few people understanding the best way to scale these applications out. In this brief state-of-the-world, we'll look at the various approaches to scalable internet application architectures and what we can learn from them.
