Responsive Web Design focuses on the display of web content, but the reality is that devices are much more than displays. In Gino Zahnd and John Bragg’s workshop “The Device is More Than a Display: Responsive Web Design is Only the Beginning” both developers and designers will come away with a solid understanding of how to create a product that makes full use of all of the capabilities of a device, from its screen to its accelerometer, and everything in between.
During the workshop, you’ll actively collaborate with John, Gino, and other attendees to create a real-world product/service that spans the desktop, mobile web, native apps, and maybe even activity-specific devices! Whoa!
Learn how to think in terms of designing and building with device classes, rather than just screen size and orientation. You’ll consider mechanisms for input, sensory feedback, processing power, data storage and environmental context to create experiences that truly respond to peoples’ real world usage.
