Evaluating technology — with Jeremy Keith — Thursday, May 18th 2017, Nuremberg

A master class workshop for web developers

Let's get together to examine some of the web technologies you've been hearing so much about. Browser APIs, dev tools, frameworks… What's hot? What's not? And how do you decide whether a particular technology is right for you?

Tunnel vision is a phenomena every developer knows too well. Each of us has their preferred workflow to make things run smoothly, but sometimes we tend to get so stuck in refining details that we lose the broader view on the «bigger picture». How well do the components such as the tools we work with serve the project? How well does the final product work? And, more importantly, how well does it fail?

At this point, there are no bad ideas.

Jeremy Keith about the first part of the workshop


Let's meet up for a brainstorming session that helps us view our daily tasks as fresh ideas from a different angle. Let's replace the «No, but...»s with «Yes, and...»s and combine tools, technologies and techniques into a huge pool of possibilities to choose from when it comes to re-evaluating and re-setting our focus.

Jeremy Keith is an Irish web developer living in Brighton, England, where he works with the web consultancy firm Clearleft. He wrote the books DOM Scripting, Bulletproof Ajax, HTML5 For Web Designers and most recently the web book Resilient Web Design. His latest project is Huffduffer, a service for creating podcasts of found sounds. When he's not making websites, Jeremy plays bouzouki in the band Salter Cane.

This is an exclusive all-day workshop with a limited number of seats. Lunch and coffee will be provided.

The workshop is happening during the Nürnberg Web Week 2017, so there are lots of other events you might want to visit (the web week event programme will go online soon).

We're having a very short Early Bird phase until Monday, March 20th — act fast and grab yourself a reduced ticket while they're available!
