Multi-Device Interactions with the Web - Ben Foxall
We usually interact with the web through a single device, even when we’ve got several other web-enabled devices nearby. I’ll talk about sharing an interaction across multiple devices to push past the constraints of a single browser app.
I’ll cover the concepts required to produce this kind of interface, discuss the web technologies that are key to making this interaction a reality and show the new kinds of interactions that we can create.
Part demo, part talk, part interactive session - bring your devices and expect to participate.
Ben is a senior developer at White October.
Practical Responsive Images - Ben Seymour
Images have just become responsive, thanks to changes in browser technologies.

Coupled with a capable Dynamic Imaging System, we are close to making Responsive Images a truly Practical prospect.
Ben will show you how to do it and what benefits and approaches you can look forward to taking advantage of now, and in the near future.
