Workshops

On Wednesday, August 27th, (the day before the conference), we will host full-day workshops with some of our speakers. Topics vary from design to tech – those are unique occasions to learn very closely with experienced pros.

Please note that the number of tickets per workshop is limited. Get you ticket for these hands-on sessions as long as they're available!

Ticket prices include full-day workshop, coffee and lunch.

 

«JavaScript in Depth»

with Axel Rauschmayer

Buy Your ticket

JavaScript has grown up and its popularity has expanded far beyond web browsers – to servers, mobile and desktop applications, databases, robots and more. It is therefore increasingly important to know this language well.

 

This workshop is for people who are already programming JavaScript and would like to get acquainted more deeply with it. I will cover the history and background of JavaScript, power features (property attributes, integers, etc.), lesser-known pitfalls (Unicode, array indices, etc.) and coding patterns (IIFE, etc.).

 

We won’t go into browser-related topics (rendering performance, etc.), but I will give an introduction to module systems and to asynchronous programming.

 

«Mobile Viewports»

with Peter-Paul Koch

Buy Your ticket

Is this workshop for you? To find out, try to understand the following sentence: "Once you set the layout viewport dimensions to the ideal viewport dimensions, you can use the device-width media query to read it out, and thereby get an idea what kind of device you're on."

 

a) If you understand exactly what this sentence says and spot the deliberate error I inserted, this workshop is not for you. I can't teach you anything.
b) If you run away screaming and definitely don't want to know, this workshop is not for you, either. Viewports are complicated
c) If you've got a vague idea this has something to do with responsive design, and you'd like to learn more, especially about that error, this workshop is for you.

 

In this one-day workshop PPK, who spent more time on the mobile viewport than anyone not working for a browser vendor, will treat the following topics:

 

How many viewports are there? (Spoiler: three.)
Why do we need so many? (Spoiler: Actually, for pretty good reasons.)
How do meta viewport and media queries work? (Spoiler: pretty well, as long as you keep it simple. But if you don't ... oh boy!)
And resolution? What is DPR anyway? (Spoiler: not what you think it is.)
Why does responsive design work? (Not how. Why.)

 

Also, you're encouraged to take real-world problems with you. We'll set aside some time to go through these problems, either in full session or one-on-one. You can't beat real-world problems when it comes to explaining complicated topics.

 

And devices. Please bring devices. The more obscure, the better.
