1. Title: The Plural of Chromium is Chromia

    Description:
    ---------------
    Where web developers expect Chrome to offer a single platform for web sites and web apps, and that all Android 4.3+ users use Chrome as their default browser, reality is diverging at a fast clip. Google Chrome has never been the default browser on any system, except for Google's own Nexus and the Motorolas that were created while Google owned the company. Most important Android vendors, such as Samsung, HTC, and LG, are now using their own Chromium-based browsers as defaults. So far PPK identified eleven of them, and they're all subtly different.

    What's going on? Why does everyone want its own Chromium? Why doesn't Google step in and force Google Chrome on everybody? And what's the deal with that other Android default browser, Android WebKit?

    In this presentation PPK explains exactly this.

  2. Stephanie was closing the fifth beyond tellerrand festival in Düsseldorf with her fabulous talk about the emerging global Web. Watch this talk to find out more about how people in other parts of the world use the Web. Already looking forward to her new talk at beyond tellerrand in Berlin

    Title: The Emerging Global Web

    Description:
    ---------------
    The web was first conceived 25 years ago, by an Englishman. Fifteen years later, as the first crop of dot.coms were going bust, close to 60% of its users (and all Alexa "top 20" sites) came from developed nations. Fast forward to today, and the picture is strikingly different.

    Almost half the Alexa "top 20" now comes from emerging economies. Economies where close to 3 billion people have yet to use the web, but thanks to mobile — won't have to wait much longer to discover it.

    This presentation will introduce you to fascinating and innovative services that are re-shaping the web to serve the consumers of tomorrow. Driven by mobile, the power of personal relationships, and the breakneck pace of globalisation, these services provide a glimpse into the business models, opportunities and challenges we will face, when growing a truly global web.

  3. Jeremy has been part of beyond tellerrand in the future. he is one of those people I could invite for all my events. One who could read a book and I'd just listen to it. This year it was panned that he runs the IndieWeb Camp as part of the Side Events and he had to jump in as one of the speakers was not able to come. Not a seoncd was I thinking that this is not going to work out. So here is Jeremy Keith and his talk “Enhance!”

    Title: Enhance!

    Description:
    ---------------
    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. Prepare to have your brain subtly rewired as we look 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.

  4. When I invited Sara to come and speak in Düsseldorf, I was extremely excited to have her on board and never thought it would be any problem to get a visa for her. Well, as you can read here (btco.nf/whytonevergiveup), we had a “little” problem with this. But all this makes me even more happy that Sara was part of it. I am happy she was there and gave this fantastic talk …

    Title: SVG Lessons I Learned The Hard Way

    Description:
    ---------------
    Even though SVG is not difficult to learn if you come from an HTML-CSS-y background, working with SVG is not as straightforward as working with HTML because they are fundamentally different in many aspects.

    We tend to work with SVG and expect it to behave similar to the way HTML does, or maybe expect the tools, properties, functions, etc. that we use to work with SVG just like they would work with HTML. But, unfortunately, our expectations are not always met, and we are stuck trying to figure out what went wrong and why what we expected to work simply didn't. Why isn't the element translated as I expect it to? Why are those coordinates wrong? Why aren't my styles applied? why isn't the script working?

    Sara has had a lot of these moments while working with SVG, got a few headaches in the process, and learned a few lessons. In this talk, she wants to share some lessons with you that I have learned from working with SVG for some time, hopefully saving you some of those moments in the future.

  5. Dave Shea … one of my heroes of the early internet days. And I had a chance to invoite him to my little beyond tellerrand event. He made it to the fifth beyond tellerrand in Düsseldorf. His talk was a nice trip through time and space of web design and the internet …

    Title: A Brief History of Web Design

    Description:
    ---------------
    The web is almost 25 years old, but the chances are that your professional career started much more recently than that.

    Web design has been around almost since the beginning, but what it means to build a web site has changed as dramatically as the web itself. From grey backgrounds to font tags and tables, from simple style sheets to responsive sites, from 640x480 to the thousands of screen sizes we encounter today, the march of progress continues.

    But as we move forward, it's useful to consider lessons from the past. And that's a rapidly-fading past; links rot. References fade. Information disappears. During a career that started during the Browser Wars, Dave has seen a lot of it first hand, and would like to reminisce about how things were so we can avoid repeating past mistakes.
