PDX-UX: Putting HTML5 to Work
October 25, 2011 Leave a comment
Last month’s PDX-UX meeting brought a staggering 80 developers and designers who came together to talk about UX/UI (not too shabby for our first gathering).
This Thursday, we hope to see an equally fantastic group come out to listen to our presenters and bond over UX/UI. This month’s speakers will be discussing all things HTML5:
Thomas will explain how Second Story utilizes HTML5 to build engaging and unique user experiences that go beyond the computer screen. They’ve produced everything from a media wall at the alumni building at University of Oregon to a thematic mosaic exploring Mexican history within Los Angeles.
Simran will show off some of the HTML5 experiments he’s created prior to his job here at Thetus. Have a
peek at his personal site to see how he plays with color, sound and physics on canvas, and how he takes a single spring-based word design through a series of design iterations toward an online competitive word game.
Martin, who is the Head of Architecture at Accelrys Inc., will discuss how he has thoroughly improved a web app he’s been developing by working with HTML5. He’ll tell us about the unexpected benefits of HTML5’s rapid feedback cycles, its ability to focus on delight, and the potential to expand its use to a team-based collaboration tool that could work in real-time with customers and clients.
Our meeting will be held this Thursday, October 27th, at Thetus Corporation: 34 NW 1st Ave (corner of 1st & Couch), on the 3rd floor. The food and networking begins at 5:30, and demos will start at 6:00.
As always, there will be food, beer and soda provided. If you haven’t already, please RSVP at our PlanCast site.
