The event started with a presentation from Petro Salema, Ghost in the shell, who focused on new models of human-computer interaction.

The second presentation, was held by Roy Tomeij, SASS – of the beaten path, a presentation in which he showed us a more programmatic side of SAAS, with some examples on “how to” and “how not to” use SASS. In the presentation he had a neat example on how to use SASS when you need to manipulate colors. He also presented a few fun examples with SASS using CSS animations.

The second session started with a presentation from Stephen Hay, Maintaining simplicity, a presentation focused on how unwanted complexity is added during the process of building applications. He presented some examples on how complicated are some steps, which a user has to follow, in order to get what he needs and why is it important to keep it simple so that the user can have a easy interaction with whatever your applications is offering.

After that, Tobias Ahlin followed with his presentation – A tale of talent, titles, and other discouraging delusions, in which he presented some simple examples on how applications can have and help the user interaction with some simple graphic examples.

After lunch, Soledad Penades made a fun presentation, Hands on web audio, filled with lots of audio examples and examples on how to use the Web Audio API.

Following Soledad came Heydon Pickering, with his presentation, Paper prototyping applications. He presented some fun ways to use actual paper design, during the design of an web application.

Andy Hume, started the final session with a presentation called Architecting resilient front-ends. The presentation was about how user experience can be poor because of slow loading JavaScript or missing fonts and how we can still deliver meaningful content when issues like that appear.

The final presentation was held by Christian Heilmann, The wheel is spinning, but the hamster is almost dead, where he emphasized the fact that we overcomplicate things during development and we should use the tools and the technology that applies best when developing.

Thanks to the speakers and the organizers for making this an interesting and pleasant event.
