Web + Wow: An Exploration of the Web as a Medium
with CJ Gammon (@cjgammon)
The web is becoming an increasingly mixed medium with the growing list of technologies we have at our disposal. In this session we will discuss rich web experiences and different techniques used to achieve them. We will also cover new and upcoming web features and explore how these may change the way we create rich web content in the future.
Unmasking the GPU: Using Hardware Acceleration Correctly in CSS
with Divya Manian (@divya)
Browsers have been offloading more and more of newer CSS features to be processed by the GPU. This is a new unmapped territory which makes it more important to understand how and when browsers do this, so you can prevent disruptive behaviour for your users that may even end up in crashing their computers. Learn which CSS properties are accelerated, how and what you can do to make sure you know when and how to use them correctly to ensure smooth experience.
Have something interesting you’d like to talk about that you can present in five minutes or less? Reach out to us with a title of your topic and a brief description on what it encompasses to see if it’d be a good fit for this event.
The event is sponsored by Adobe, to whom we owe a huge thanks for providing not only their office as the venue, but also food, drinks, two of their incredible employees, and items to raffle off to attendees.
