“Imposter Syndrome” by Jacob Thompson

Jacob talks about tackling Imposter Syndrome (where sufferers fail to recognise their accomplishments despite understanding their own ability), along with some advice he’s picked up along the way. He covers his intense learning experiences that took him from being an overly confident developer to someone who experienced the syndrome first hand.

“Reimagining How We Design Responsively” by Jonathan Fielding

Responsive design is still a relatively new technique – however, it has already gone through several different incarnations of how we should be building these sites. In the first incarnation we started by adding media queries, adapting our site to work better on mobile devices. The second incarnation arrived with mobile first design: Building for the least capable, smallest devices and then using progressive enhancement to take advantage of larger screens and extra features that devices offered. This talk will focus on how we can reimagine responsive design with a focus on the content and performance: Evolving a new incarnation where we aim to deliver a functioning site as quickly as possible to our users that delivers content that is prioritised to what the user is trying to achieve.

About Jonathan (@JonthanFielding)

Jonathan is a technical architect at Beamly, where he focuses on building out and improving the site to offer users the best possible experience. The main drive behind anything that Jonathan does is whether it will benefit someone in some way, whether that be through improving UX on or through contributing to open source to help push the web forward. Outside of work, he has written Beginning Responsive Design with HTML5 and CSS3 and has worked on many open source projects including SimpleStateManager, Echo.js ResponsiveJavascript.com and Doccy. Aside from development he also has an awesome collection of geeky t-shirts.
