Featuring Guest Speaker Opher Vishnia

Making the web juicier! In many ways modern web sites are similar to video games: They both offer rich interactive experiences and aim to drive more engagement from users.

They both also often encounter the same difficulties like performance issues, adjusting to different screen size and device fragmentation. So why aren't modern web sites more like modern video games?

In this talk I will show how to apply video game design principles when designing and building websites, in order to make them truly juicy.
