Screen Time: An Event Apart Video by Luke Wroblewski
In this 60-minute video captured live at An Event Apart Orlando: Special Edition, designer, entrepreneur, and author Luke Wroblewski (@lukew) takes us beyond Responsive Design, beyond single-device sessions, and deep into what today’s world of multiple, simultaneous screens means for web and interaction designers.
When many of us were kids, screen time was how long we were allowed to sit in front of a TV. Screen time today is much more complex. People increasingly move between and simultaneously use screens of various sizes, proportions, and quality as they get online each day. From working around the differences in contrast between devices, to adjusting UI to compensate for different viewing differences; from RESS techniques to combine the best of server-side and responsive techniques, to the magic of vertical media queries and much more, you will gain a deeper understanding of screen time today, and explore new ways to design effective cross-screen experiences for tomorrow.
Luke is the author of three popular web design books (Mobile First, Web Form Design, and Site-Seeing: A Visual Approach to Web Usability) in addition to many articles about digital product design and strategy. Currently at Google, Luke was previously CEO and co-founder of Input Factory Inc., a start-up focused on micro-mobile interactions, which Luke sold to Google a year after starting it. Prior to that, he was co-founder and Chief Product Officer of Bagcheck, which was acquired by Twitter just nine months after being launched publicly. Before founding start-up companies, Luke was an Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) at Benchmark Capital, the Chief Design Architect (VP) at Yahoo!, Lead User Interface Designer at eBay, and a Senior Interface Designer at NCSA: the birthplace of the first popular graphical web browser, NCSA Mosaic.
