CAROLINE ST. ROMAIN v v FRIDAY, MARCH 7 11:00 AM–1:30 PM Classroom 101 Unstructure: Smashing the Boundaries of Data This workshop will cover concepts that bring data de- sign out of the 1970s: sparse representation, emergent schema, ultra-structure, prototype-driven design, and more. We'll run the gamut of philosophical approaches to understanding what is important in your mental (and software) model, and how to transcend your two- dimensional picture of data, and trade it in for an N- dimensional one. Ian Varley Advanced • Design & Development • #smashdata 11:00 AM–4:00 PM Classroom 104 Making More of Ourselves— Sensory & Multimodal UX An activity-based provocation about our addiction to the visual and how it is other senses, like touch, smell & hearing, that define the future of multimodal user experiences for wearable technologies and more. Work- ing in teams, we'll communicate through touch, learn of sensory substitution and augmentation and prototype future products or services using all our senses. Alastair Somerville Intermediate • Intelligent Future • #MakeMore 11:00 AM–1:30 PM Classroom 105 Taking the Responsive Web to Windows 8 Developers now have a platform with Windows 8.1 to take their skills with HTML/CSS/JS and use them to create native apps. Take what we've learned with responsive web design and create Windows 8+ apps that feel great on everything from small tablets to large all-in-one PCs. Daniel Wilson Intermediate • Design & Development • #respwin8 11:00 AM–1:30 PM Classroom 106 Scaling at Twitter with Drupal & Thrift Learn why Twitter chose Drupal and how they use it, Apache Thrift and the advantages of using it, and how to use Thrift to connect Drupal to a persistent remote service. Participants will create new Drupal modules using the Form API and thrift module to capture form values and send those values to a remote service. Arnaud Meunier, Byron Sorrells, Chris Doyle, Guy Oron Intermediate • Content & Distribution • #ScaleIt 11:00 AM–1:30 PM Classroom 202 Joining the Team: The Startup Seduction Miles Parroco, head of recruiting at Eventbrite, will give attendees an overview of what it means to join the team at a startup from a recruiter's perspective.
