Stephen Hay – Maintaining Simplicity – beyond tellerrand Düsseldorf 2014

Stephen is one of the most calm and nice people. besides speaking, he also organizes events like CSSday or mobilism together with Krijn and PPK. In 2014 I was able to get him from Amsterdam to Düsseldorf to give a fantastic talk. Title: “Maintaining Simplicity” Description: ———————- Everyone talks about the benefits of simplicity. Yet many of us end up adding a heavy amount of complexity to inherently simple things. In fact, many web designers and developers end up spending significant amounts of project time undoing problems caused by complexities added early in the design process. In effect, we often ruin the things we build during the process of building them, but it doesn’t have to be that way. In this session, Stephen looks at how and why we complicate things, and then looks at how an exaggerated application of progressive enhancement can help us maintain simplicity and increase value for the people using the things we make. ———————- Watch this little video to get an impression how beyond tellerrand events look like: MORE INFORMATION Talk & speaker bio: beyond tellerrand:
