Here’s one of my presentations for Computers in Libraries 2013 – great conference! I’m posting this one separately, since there’s some good stuff here. I poked around in Google, and condensed a lot of “web design predictions” posts into this handy list of 15 web design trends for 2013. Which ones are you thinking about?
- Content first
- Design simplicity
- UX Centered Design
- App style interfaces
- Responsive design
- No skeuomorphism
- Fixed header bars
- Large photo backgrounds
- CSS Transparency
- Social media badges
- Infinite scrolling
- Homepage feature tours
- Sliding panels
- Parallax design
Enjoy! I’ll post links to my other CIL 2013 presentations in another post.
As usual, I had a great time at Computers in Libraries 2012 (#CILDC). I learned some interesting things, and met some really cool people too.
I also gave a few presentations (ok – five presentations). Here are a couple of my slidedecks and some notes people took during the presentations, so you can get a feel for my sessions. Enjoy!
1. Seven Essential Elements to an Awesome Library Website
2. Digital Hangouts: Reaching Outside the Building
4. Benchmark Study – Library Spending and Priorities 2012 (another panel – notes from Joanna’s Conference Reports blog).
Six speakers in 45 minutes! Here are some highlights…
MIT App Inventor and jQuery:
MIT App Inventor – a web-based Android app development tool. Store your code at the site, can test what youâ€™re building by using the site. Has a designer that lets you add components, modules, etc.
Has an AppToMarket that uploads your app to the Android app stores (some registration and a small payment is required for that).
Next up: whatâ€™s a mobile framework? Gave an example of mobile design and redesign… they used jquerymobi
So Iâ€™m at Computers in Libraries 2012 in Washington DC – always a great conference! Make sure to check out presentations online, and follow the #cildc hashtag on twitter… Hereâ€™s a couple of notes from a session â€¦ more to come later!
I walked in late to this session, but what I heard was great.
Jeff Wisniewski was talking about mobile stuff, and said this:
mobile first is different than mobile-friendly! Then gave examples of how some people are redesigning websites with tablets and smartphone functionality in mind.
Next up – Cindy Hart, talking about augmented reality and library resources for enhanced digital storytelling…
they used http://tagwhat.com/ to help them create stories. Looks like a cool tool to check out!
