Tim Mannino, lead developer for Kettul Design, will talk about effective UX strategies for designing web applications. Here's a quick description of his talk:

Do or Do Not. There is No Try. Successes and Failures of UI/UX in Web Apps.

There's a lot of talk these about app development, responsive design, UI/UX, etc. Arguably, it seems the days of talk about "native apps" are quickly moving behind us. The focus on robust web apps that work both seamlessly in a browser but also on a host of mobile devices is more important than ever.

We'll explore examples of great UI/UX in web applications, terrible execution on a large public scale, and pitfalls small businesses and startups can avoid. Some topics that will be discussed:
