  2. We’re working on increasingly complex websites. There’s a temptation to match this growth with increasingly complex solutions. But there’s a real value in keeping things simple...or at least _starting_ things simple. If you can build a solid robust foundation, there’s a good chance that your work will be future-friendly.

    In this 60-minute video captured live at An Event Apart Orlando: Special Edition, prepare to have your brain subtly rewired as web developer and author Jeremy Keith (HTML5 For Web Designers) looks beneath the surface-level implementation details of the web to reveal the semantic structure below. Whether you’re publishing content or building the latest hot app, the principle of progressive enhancement will change the way you think about your work.

    Jeremy Keith lives in Brighton, England where he makes websites with the splendid design agency Clearleft. He’s the curator of the dConstruct conference as well as Brighton SF, and he organised the world’s first Science Hack Day. He also made the website Huffduffer to allow people to make podcasts of found sounds—it’s like Instapaper for audio files. Jeremy is also the author of the books DOM Scripting, Bulletproof Ajax, and the website adactio.com, where he has been writing for over ten years.

  3. As web professionals, our jobs require more cross-team collaboration than ever, and that means it’s getting tougher to delineate our disciplines. When was the last time you did “just” design, content, or code? It’s no longer an option to only care about what’s on your own plate. In this 60-minute video captured live at An Event Apart Austin, Kristina Halvorson draws on her experience as a “content therapist” to shares insights about how curiosity, empathy, and shared ambition help us all build a better web.

    Kristina Halvorson runs Brain Traffic, a content strategy consultancy. She’s the author of _Content Strategy for the Web_ and the founder of Confab: The Content Strategy Conference.

  4. Organizations continue to pile features and fixes onto the redesign process. Companies that overlooked mobile are making big changes in a panic, while those with designs suitable for any device aren’t sure what to do next. One thing that won’t change is that people crave easier, faster, and more widespread access to their information and tools.

    In this 60-minute video captured live at An Event Apart Orlando: Special Edition, Kevin M. Hoffman explains how service design thinking, lean approaches to user experience, and co-design processes offer an alternative to the money pit, and deliver experiences that delight your users.

    Kevin M. Hoffman has been making great web design happen for 15 years, as a strategist, educator, and information designer. Beginning as a “webmaster” in public libraries and universities, he went on to lead web communications strategy at the University of Baltimore and MICA. He also taught a younger generation of web designers in both BFA and MFA design programs, introducing them to web standards before browsers introduced those same standards into their codebase. As the director of user experience at Happy Cog, he oversaw all aspects of project definition, information design, and content strategy for clients like Harvard University, Nintendo, MTV, and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Kevin currently provides strategic consulting and workshops to clients and agencies alike.
