DCA Design and Development team stays on the forefront of web technology.
Miami, FL - September 15, 2011 - Learning new and innovative ways to better our craft is all part of cultivating the creative process. So, when we heard that An Event Apart: For People Who Make Websites was going to be in Atlanta, we knew we had to be there. DCA developer Thomas Nagl, designers Jorge Uribe and Ryan Dalisay and project manager Alfred Smith attended the two-day seminar where they geeked on the latest CSS features and programming languages, including animation through CSS and the new HTML5.
“It was a really insightful and inspiring program in the way it introduced the latest web design trends and best practices to help produce a more ideal user experience,” says Ryan. “Each presentation offered in-depth examples and new ways to implement various techniques for us to create some really unique interfaces.”
Consisting of 12 presentations, the topics ran the gamut from crafting the user experience, typography and animation to using flexible boxes and ways a company can “cultivate a culture of making amazing things”. Jeff Veen, CEO of Typekit, discussed how his company braced for industry changes and the steps they took to ensure that they stayed at the top of their game.
