  2. Design for What’s Next

    Spend a day exploring the web’s emerging interactions and how you can put them to work today. Your guide is designer Josh Clark, author of Designing for Touch and ambassador of the near future. The day begins with a survey of familiar platforms—desktop and mobile—to uncover the new solutions that are replacing yesterday’s best practices. From there, we’ll move into newer design tools—speech, bots, physical interfaces, artificial intelligence, and more—to see how these fresh-from-the-future technologies fit into your everyday products and processes.

    You’ll learn the tools and techniques for prototyping and launching these new interfaces, but you’ll also learn the answers to foundational questions for all your projects:

    • How should we evaluate new technologies?
    • What’s the best way to gently introduce them to your organization and to your audience?
    • What’s the role of user research and prototypes?
    • How can play and experimentation lead to actual product?
    • What are designers’ responsibilities when rolling out new tech?
    • How do you support audiences that haven’t yet adopted the fresh and fancy?

    You’ll leave the day inspired to create—and ready for action.
