Title: YOUR SITE DOESN'T SIT ON A DESKTOP ANYMORE!
Abstract: Our goal is to create a responsive design that would provide the best possible experience to all of our users, regardless of how they accessed our website. Best way is to explore how we could enhance for wider screens, rather than attempt to squeeze our desktop website down to mobile.

Title: Quick Tour to Front-End Unit Testing
Abstract: Unit Testing is an inseparable part of the development process, no matter which methodology you follow, be it TDD, or BDD, you know for sure that this investment is worthwhile, enabling early bug fixes, safe re-factoring, and better design. You want to test your JavaScript code but don’t know where to start? Which tools to pick? In this session we will take a look at the tools, how to combine them to play nicely together, and making Testing a breeze.
