What’s the fastest growing segment of the tech industry right now? Did you answer mobile? You should have.
We are convinced that the best conferences provide ample opportunity for informal talks among both speakers and attendees. As a result, we opt to keep our events friendly, the topics focused and uninhibited by competing tracks. We choose to keep attendance at workable, pre-determined levels to enhance social networking opportunities. After all, we believe the impromptu conversations among colleagues are sometimes the ones that inform and inspire the most.
We look forward to seeing you at BDConf Nashville.

Responsive web design has taken our industry by storm and with good reason: it helps us improve our reach with less effort.

Brad FrostOver the past few years, we’ve seen the web community create style tiles, element collages, style guides, pattern libraries, and a slew of other tools in order to break interfaces down to their atomic elements. Our interfaces are going more places than ever before, so this shift is essential to help us better understand what our websites consist of in order for us create smart, scalable, maintainable designs. This session will introduce atomic design, a methodology for creating robust design systems. We’ll cover how to apply atomic design to implement your very own design system in order to set you, your organization and clients up for success.

Responsive web design has taken our industry by storm and with good reason: it helps us improve our reach with less effort. But incorporating responsive design is not the goal, meeting our user’s needs is. Responsive design is not an end in itself… it’s just the beginning.
We need to embrace the heterogenous nature of the web—myriad web-enabled devices with vastly different dimensions, screen sizes, networks, and capabilities in use by countless individuals, each with their own special needs—and craft experiences that will work anywhere at any time. We need to build robust systems that adapt in ways far beyond aesthetics.
Aaron Gustafson will open this workshop with a discussion of a number of considerations that we should be aware of, beyond screen size and pixel density, and provide examples of how to adapt our interfaces so they rise to meet our customers’ needs. Then he’ll turn it over to you to propose gnarly design and/or interface challenges you are struggling with. Once everyone’s challenges are collected, attendees will be given the opportunity to form small groups around each and you will spend a portion of the day working on solutions while Aaron mentors each group and pushes you to think more about accessibility, alternate interaction methods, slow networks, and other considerations.
The workshop will wrap up with brief presentations from each group followed by a an open question and answer session.
