How Things Change

TYPO San Francisco 2013, April 11, 2013, 11:00 am (Lam Research Theater)

Our industry is in the midst of a paradigm shift, moving from the book to the API — from a static, finished artifact, to a living, incomplete, and abstract design. That revolution encompasses everything from responsive web design to adaptive content and progressive enhancement. It affects not only what we make but how we work — and, specifically, how we work together. Mandy will outline this shift, putting it in context of those that came before, and exposing a better and more honest way of working. Along the way, she’ll share her own path — and show how she didn’t get here alone.
