This first edition was splitted into four intensive sessions about web development trends, case studies and international experiences, open-web technologies and advanced tools.
Sebastian Golasch, Specialist Senior Manager Software Developer at Deutsche Telekom, opens the second session with a presentation called "The Glitch in the game". The topic chosen is that of testing web pages, which represents a real challenge nowadays. He presents different tools and techniques for preventing glitches, failures and strange behavior of web pages. He also talks about how to automate image differences, testing the CSS code, using monkey testing and testing performance so that it stays consistent over time.
Peter Müller closes the third session with a topic called "The no build system build system". He is Frontend Lead at Podio and organizer for CopenhagenJS. In his presentation, he focuses on the build and optimization part of the development lifecycle. He explains why a build system is needed, what is the general problem of the build tools and he presents a new project called AssetGraph that helps creating workflow and makes the code more developer friendly.
Patrick H. Lauke, Accessibility Consultant at The Paciello Group opens the last session with the topic "Getting touchy - An introduction to Touch and Pointer Events". He talks about how touch devices are not only included in smartphones and tablets, but also in laptops and even in desktop computers. His presentation contains the handling of touch events, from the simplest tap interactions until multitouch, gestures and using pointer events introduced by Microsoft.
Personally, for me it was a very successful conference and the speakers kept me captivated until the end. I am excited about the next edition which I hope will have more great speakers and many more participants!
