Port80: sketchnotes and reviews from Twitter
Kevin Mears (@mearso) and Davis Burton (@phishtitz) did some excellent sketchnotes that give a good round up of the talks. We had some great feedback from Twitter too, big thanks to everyone who came and joined in.
- Denise Jacobs (@denisejacobs) Talk: Banish Your Inner Critic
Your inner critic is an unconscious deterrent that stands between the seeds of great ideas and the fruits of achievement, keeping you stuck by telling you you’re just faking it, that others have more talent, that you’ll never achieve the success you seek.
- Dan Donald (@hereinthehive) Talk: Designing Evolution
The fluidity and flexibility the web offers us is something we’ve never really had to deal with properly before.
- Nathan Ford (@nathan_ford) Talk: Mastering the dark art of fluid layout
Beautiful, fluid layouts do not need to be mystifying. Designer and developer Nathan Ford took us through some of the ways traditional grids and other layout methods on the web are hindering our designs, and showed us ways to build with fluidity from the start.
- Louise Tierney (@thelittle_t) Talk: Put yourself in their shoes!
It’s a fact that many decisions are made by our emotions, why then would you publish a website that makes people feel frustrated? Why don’t we all make websites that just ‘feel right’ to use?
Kimberley Tew (@kimberleytew) Talk: Accessibility for Humans
Accessibility is often seen as an added extra that must be requested by the client, or as an ugly hindrance to your beautiful design. Not after Kimberley’s talk.
- Kevin Evans (@kwe) Talk: These ARE the Droids you’re looking for
Kevin showed us how technology like Bluetooth LE (iBeacons), Geofencing and Social data, is being used to deliver and gather the right content at the right time.
