  • Physically Connecting the Web
  • Time: Tuesday @ 1:30pm | Room N-120

The physical world around us is becoming increasingly intelligent. From the sensors in your smartphone, to the sensors in your car. This trend has been coined the "Internet of Things". But what are those things without the internet?

  • 5 Things Designers Need to Know About Development
  • Time: Wednesday @ 4:00pm | Room E-130

Developers. What do you do with them? The designer and the developer are so different. Or are they? Did you know that most developers look at their code as art? More than just the algorithms themselves, but even the details such as spacing and placement of characters like braces. One might even call it a desire for a pixel perfect implementation. Sound familiar? This light hearted session is intended to help designers better understand developers - or at the very least be able to relate in a way that leads to a more productive relationship, and in the end, a better product.
