Cameron Adams — The future of web interfaces

A presentation given at Web Directions North, Vancouver Canada, January 31 2008.

Session description

We’re at an exciting time in the development of web-​based interfaces — along with a maturing front-​end toolkit (CSS & JavaScript), there are so many technologies, trends and exciting ideas emerging that are enabling us to push the boundaries of interface design.

Author, designer and code cowboy Cameron Adams will explore some of these areas and how they will apply to our development of online interfaces, including: the possibilities of front-​end customisation, application interfaces, browser-​native vector graphics, and the general duty of all web developers to make things interesting.

About Cameron Adams

Cameron Adams Portrait

Cameron Adams — The Man in Blue — melds a background in Computer Science with over eight years experience in graphic design to create a unique approach to interface design. Using the latest technologies, he likes to play in the intersection between design and code to produce innovative but usable sites and applications.

In addition to the projects he’s currently tinkering with, Cameron writes about the Internet and design in general on his well respected weblog, and has written several books ranging in topics from JavaScript, to CSS, and design. His latest publication — Simply JavaScript — takes a bottom-​up, quirky-​down approach to the basics of JavaScript coding.

  3. The subscribe to podcast button up top by the ‘resources’ title goes to WD07 url. Is that right? And, when subscribing, is it just this presentation (as it would appear to be considering I’m on a web page about this particular presentation), or is it to the entire WDN08 collection (as I’d hope for it to be useful)?

    Basically, there’s a lot of talk about a podcast, but no clear information about where to subscribe to it or what exactly it is you subscribe to.

  4. Yes, sadly we’re stuck with a legacy URL for that podcast. However I think you’ll find that when you click the link to subscribe to the podcast, you will in fact be subscribed to “The Web Directions Podcast”, and you will receive all future updates. Apologies for confusion over that URL.
