      • What Clients Don’t Know (and Why It’s Your Fault) by Mike Monteiro – An Event Apart Austin [corrected file]

        54:01

        from Jeffrey Zeldman / Added

        When in-house or external clients go out in search of design they often have no idea how to describe what they need, measure what they’re looking for, or evaluate who they might work for and subsequently, the work that’s produced. As designers it’s our job to help site owners and stakeholders figure these things out and to give them the tools and knowledge they need to evaluate whether what we do is what they need. Without that insight clients have nothing to go on but gut instinct and subjectivity. In this 60-minute video captured live at An Event Apart Austin 2013, Mike Monteiro (author, Design Is A Job) shows how to give your clients and stakeholders the mental tools and vocabulary they need to help you create more successful sites.

            from Jeffrey Zeldman / Added

            Thou shalt ship. Thou shalt iterate. Love thy reader as thyself. Like their biblical predecessors, the ten commandments of web design can inspire us to be and do better. In this 60-minute video, captured live at An Event Apart Austin 2013, Jeffrey Zeldman (A List Apart, Happy Cog) advises us to think noncanonically about responsive layouts, to avoid bearing false visual witness, to keep the content holy, and more. Above all, learn the small things that can make the difference between a *good* website that achieves its goals, and a *great* one that inspires passion.

            • The Curious Properties of Intuitive Web Pages by Jared M. Spool - An Event Apart Boston

              01:03:39

              from Jeffrey Zeldman / Added

              In this 60-minute video caught live at An Event Apart Boston 2012, Jared M. Spool discusses the surprisingly unintuitive logic behind the creation of "intuitive" websites. When a web page works, your users know exactly what to do. Everything makes sense, and they accomplish their goal, pleased with your site. Yet, often pages don’t work, and users get flustered and confused. It turns out that intuitive web pages abide by a set of curiously unintuitive properties. Watch Jared explain how to merge interaction design, visual design, information architecture, and other skills together to assemble web experiences that delight your users. Jared M. Spool is the founder of User Interface Engineering, a leading research, training, and consulting firm specializing in website and product usability. One of the most effective, knowledgeable communicators on the subject of usability today, Jared has been working in the field of usability and design since 1978, before the term “usability” was ever associated with computers.

                  The Five Most Dangerous Ideas – Scott Berkun, Author, Confessions of a Public Speaker There are truths about how the world works that creatives don’t like to talk about. We get angry and frustrated when we’re not granted the power we think we deserve, but there are often good reasons the world works ‘against us.’ In this 60-minute video, captured live at An Event Apart Boston 2012, Scott Berkun takes these ideas head on, from how power truly works, to our unavoidable dependence on salesmanship skills, so we can convert them from frustrations into practical behaviors for empowerment and achieving our dreams at work. An Event Apart is holding eight conferences in 2013. Attend the one nearest you, or pick a city you’ve always wanted to visit. http://aneventapart.com For the latest on AEA, follow us on Twitter and Facebook, or subscribe to our mailing list. http://twitter.com/aneventapart https://www.facebook.com/An.Event.Apart http://aneventapart.com/subscribe/

                  • Scott Jehl: Interacting Responsibly (and Responsively!) - An Event Apart

                    59:21

                    from Jeffrey Zeldman / Added

                    Your site is being used in ways you may not expect. Between screens small and large, bandwidth constraints, varying capabilities, assistive technologies, and diverse input mechanisms – mouse, keyboard, touch, sensors, device buttons, trackpads, and so on – multi-device development requires an awful lot of consideration to do well. The Filament Group's Scott Jehl (co-author, Designing With Progressive Enhancement) is a pioneer in doing it well. And in this 60-minute video, captured live at An Event Apart Boston 2012, he shares advanced and emerging techniques for improving the responsiveness (if you will) of responsive web design despite all the pitfalls, hazards, and unknowns of multi-device development. You will learn how to think and build defensively, creating experiences that not only work most anywhere, but take advantage of the latest browser capabilities and are ready for your users’ next move. For more Scott Jehl multi-device wisdom, read Luke Wroblewski's notes on Scott's presentation http://www.lukew.com/ff/entry.asp?1565.
