A Touching Look Into The Future Known As Today – PPK in the BK

Live on youstream:
HUGE office - 45 Main St. Suite 220 Brooklyn, NY


Get your dirty little fingers all over PPK's “touching” presentation on the newest standard of interaction. Revered web guru Peter-Paul Koch (@ppk) is hopping the pond all the way from Amsterdam to bring touch events and the mobile web Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. You’ll see how the increasingly fragmented mobile market makes the desktop browser war look like a walk in the park. But fear not, PPK will bring clarity as he shows us the ins and outs of how to make your applications touch-friendly, and how to test mobile effectively. Tap and swipe your way over to the HUGE offices, you won’t want to miss this one!


If you don’t already know who Peter-Paul Koch is you probably shouldn’t be coming…but just in case: PPK is recognized around the globe as a leading JavaScript expert; he is a member of the Web Standards Project DOM Scripting Task Force and has written its JavaScript Manifesto. He has won international renown with his browser compatibility research and frequently speaks at conferences, has founded Fronteers - the Dutch association of front-end professionals. PPK advises the Microsoft Internet Explorer team and the Opera teams on the standards compliance of their respective browsers and is regularly in touch with most other browser vendors including emerging mobile market.


In this latest installment of the <!DOCTYPE html> Meetup sponsored by digital agency HUGE (@hugeinc), we are bringing one of the best in the business to Brooklyn to talk about the latest tools and techniques in developing applications in the quickly evolving world of touch and keyboard driven interactions.

    Excellent presentation... thanks to HUGE for making it possible... learned a lot, but more importantly, it got ideas flowing and gave a vision for the future. Keep these meetups coming.

    Good talk. I've heard some of the ideas before, but it was good to know some of the details about the specifics of testing and coding for touchscreen devices. I don't think we have given it enough thought in our current projects. It would be useful if we simply designed our events and menus with touchscreens in mind instead of making it a completely different site. It shouldn't be that way.

    Very good speaker. Very hospitable atmosphere, with good snacks and beer.
    have wi-fi for people to access. I wanted to view the talk on Ustream on my iPad, because I was sitting in the back and couldn't see everything Peter was showing. Also, it would have been better if Peter demoed what he was talking about on actual devices instead of bulletpoints on the screen.
