Building multi-device interfaces with the web

It's a sad, sad day. We're leaving Southville. No longer will I have a 45 second waddle from the pub back home.

It's not all bad. Far from it. We are honoured to have a lovely exchange student on loan to us for the evening from Oxford JS.

A warm welcome to Ben Foxall. Ben was most recently a speaker at the London JS Conference whereby he wooed us with his wizardry of his Second Screen skills. These techniques are very much in their infancy but will be huuuge over the next few years.

You heard it here. First.

"Our interactions with the web are usually through a single browser or device.  We'll talk about ways to combine devices to create interfaces which aren't possible with traditional web apps."

Hosted by the lovely Basekit.

Doors open at 18.30 for a prompt 19.00 start

    One of the best talks I've ever seen, it was awesome to see three.js used in a way that was visually exciting but served a meaningful purpose. Also thank again to basekit for the space an pizza :)

    My first Meetup and I found it inspiring.
    I didn't agree with the comments at the end about always needing to keep focused on UX over everything else. Obviously you need to keep it in your mind, but you shouldn't let it hinder your creativity. You should be free to experiment and explore and push at the boundaries to see what happens. Then, only once we've explored the possibilities, is it time to go back and look at UX and apply your new found knowledge.

      Glad you found it inspiring! I'd totally agree that a pure UX based development would constrain the creativity, experimentation and freedom of coding. More the point I was trying to make was that I feel it's important to have an idea of something bigger than the implementation itself. I see so many people (myself included) get obsessed with tweaking some feature and forget why it needed to be there in the first place.
