1. Ola was the last addition to the speaker line-up in Düsseldorf, May 2014. Her topic directly caught me and I was happy to have her on board of btconf Düsseldorf

    Title: “Say Hello To Offline First”

    Description:
    ---------------
    Re-Imagining Web Design and Development for the Real World

    We live in a disconnected & battery-powered world. Devices and user interactions have changed enormously over the years. What hasn't changed is the internet itself and the way how we concept and build applications in it.

    Offline First does not only mean reverting our design processes and creating apps for offline use first. In this new world where "online" is just a feature and not default state, we have to find new approaches and patterns for our thoughts and processes in app design and development.

    This talk will cover the philosophy behind and current state of offline support on the web, the starting points and the design challenges posed by developing a first-class offline experience, and it will also give you first insights in the technical parts.

    How can we change the way the web is built?

  2. Karen was part of beyond tellerrand // Düsseldorf 2014, where she gave a great talk about content strategy and more. Thanks for being part of btconf 2014, Karen!

    Title: “Content in a Zombie Apocalypse”

    Description:
    ---------------
    Friends, a zombie apocalypse is upon us: an onslaught of new mobile devices, platforms, and screen sizes, hordes of them descending every day. We're outmatched. There aren't enough designers and developers to battle every platform. There aren't enough editors and writers to populate every screen size. Defeating the zombies will require flexibility and stamina—in our content. We'll have to separate our content from its form, so it can adapt appropriately to different contexts and constraints. We'll have to change our production workflow so we're not just shoveling content from one output to another. And we'll have to enhance our content management tools and interfaces so they're ready for the future. Surviving the zombie apocalypse is possible. In this talk Karen will explain how: by developing a content strategy that treats all our platforms as if they're equally important.

  3. Stephen is one of the most calm and nice people. besides speaking, he also organizes events like CSSday or mobilism together with Krijn and PPK. In 2014 I was able to get him from Amsterdam to Düsseldorf to give a fantastic talk.

    Title: “Maintaining Simplicity”

    Description:
    ---------------
    Everyone talks about the benefits of simplicity. Yet many of us end up adding a heavy amount of complexity to inherently simple things. In fact, many web designers and developers end up spending significant amounts of project time undoing problems caused by complexities added early in the design process. In effect, we often ruin the things we build during the process of building them, but it doesn't have to be that way. In this session, Stephen looks at how and why we complicate things, and then looks at how an exaggerated application of progressive enhancement can help us maintain simplicity and increase value for the people using the things we make.

  4. When I met Robin for the first time, many of the things that you can do wrong, meeting a blind person and hosting him at your event, I totally did wrong. But Robin, being such a nice person, was nice, polite and in his talk he showed a different side to things and technology than most of us would ever thought of. Thanks for a wonderful talk, Robin.

    Title: “Technology - The Power And The Promise”

    Description:
    ---------------
    Robin Christopherson, of the leading UK inclusive tech experts AbilityNet, will thoroughly and wonderfully blast away any preconceptions you may have about the potential of technology. Being blind himself he provides us with an excellent first-hand example of the choices we can provide for all our customers and users if we simply design with an eye for inclusion. Robin will be talking about (but more importantly demonstrating) the truly empowering nature of technology.

    From AI to robots, from apps to wearables he'll be showing how inclusive technology has the power to change and even transform people's lives regardless of ability or environment. Will you be part of the Everybody Technology future?

  5. I've met Maciej a couple of times on several events. I always loved his talks and the way he was presenting. But when I was asking him about closing beyond tellerrand in Düsseldorf 2014, I did never imagine what was coming. A fantastic talk which transcript had so many hits already, that I hope all those people are now going to watch the actual video also. Take your time and enjoy what Maciej has to say about the future web …

    Title: “The Internet With a Human Face”

    Description:
    ---------------
    The Internet as we've built it is getting boring and creepy. Everything is tracked forever, not just by sneaky governments, but by advertisers who see any human relationship as a sales opportunity. We're told to confess our interests, our activities, and our physical location to a small group of centralized companies, or risk being forever left behind. But being left behind is starting to sound more appealing.

    What would it mean to have a more human Internet? How can we keep the convenience and fun without sacrificing so much of our dignity? How can we fix the online world so we'll be proud to pass to our children? And where do we begin?

    We begin at Beyond Tellerrand! ¡Viva la revolución!
