In 2017 we celebrated the tenth anniversary of real world @font-face usage – what has changed since then? Is the typographic culture in the web more sophisticated now? What are the challenges with licensing, clients and pageview counting? We will take a look beyond the glamorous but unrealistic agency websites and freelancer portfolios. Welcome to the real world of webfonts in 2018!

The battle between designer and developer has often been written about. An oversimplified conclusion to these posts would be to empathize and learn the basics of the other’s craft. This is great advice but not very practical. Pattern Libraries (or style guides) not only help the developer implement the designer’s work more easily, they also force the designer to think about how their work is going to be used in the web. Pattern Libraries could very well be the end of the war between the two disciplines. This talk will outline not only the why of the Pattern Library but also (and crucially) the how.
What you don’t know can’t hurt you, at least that’s the old saying. But on the web, it is precisely the things that you don’t know and can’t see that can cause the biggest headaches. The web is an unstable and unpredictable environment and every day there are complications that go unnoticed and unseen—but not by the people trying to use your site. Building a stable, usable experience online requires that we broaden our perspective.
Buttons are arguably a design system’s most important component. Devilishly simple, they offer a simple label in a defined region you can press. As such, buttons are where you apply a design language’s base attributes in ways that’ll ripple throughout more complex component later. In this talk, Nathan will cover 12 lessons that he has learned when working on primary buttons, secondary buttons, and a whole host of other button types in an emerging system.

There’s been a lot of discussion about how to build a progressive web app but not a lot of discussion about why businesses should invest in them. Better user experience, faster performance, more engagement—Jason Grigsby explains why progressive web apps are no-brainers for most websites.
Who would win in a showdown between HTML Links and Buttons? Marcy Sutton will settle it once and for all by pitting these opponents against each other in a dream match. Battles as simple links vs. buttons when designing and developing web interfaces can have significant impacts on users, including those with disabilities. By considering the strengths of each competitor, we can be more informed about making the right choice; from lesser-known features of HTML forms to conventions in client-side routing to effective use of WAI-ARIA. Come for the showdown, leave with practical UI tips for your next project.

You’ll learn: —How to adapt activities, technology, and processes for the 4 stages of design systems —How to govern a design system for years —How the Carbon Design System was created, adopted, governed, and evolved
Bethany Sonefeld Design Lead at IBM Bluemix Originally from the mitten state, Bethany moved to Austin, Texas in 2015 and is currently working as a Design Lead at IBM Design.
She leads the team in charge of developing and maintaining the Carbon Design System, which enables teams to design and build experiences that contribute to IBM Cloud products.
Bred a morning person and a warm weather gal, she’s always on the search for the sea, sun, and fresh air. Away from designing, you’ll find her soaking up the sunshine, nose deep in a good book, or attempting to memorize lyrics to rap songs.

Writing Less Damned Code
Description: ———————- Concatenating, minifying, compressing, caching: all serviceable ways to improve the performance of web interfaces. But none are as effective as not coding something in the first place. Code that don’t exist is infinitely performant and extremely easy to maintain and document. This talk will identify some examples of front-end code that are either not needed at all, make the interface worse just by being there, or can be replaced by something much, much simpler. Say hello to unprogressive non-enhancement. ———————-
