Poorly designed web applications fail to serve both the business and the users, leading to a unnecessary costs, and frustrated customers. By keeping the user in mind, and following a few simple guidelines, you can make huge leaps in the way your users interact with your applications.
In this session, we will focus on the enterprise - where the user-base is known and fairly consistent, but typically where user interface and interaction are not the top most priorities. We will discuss some rules for good design, look at a few simple design elements that can make your web apps shine, and your users rejoice.
Think Clojure is only for the back-end functional geeks? Think again. Noir is a web application framework written in Clojure.
In this talk we will see how we can create a simple site using Noir, and with Heroku's support for Clojure, deploy and run it in the cloud.
In this session we will take a dive in D3. We will look into how D3 offers no new constructs for visualization, but rather lets you leverage well known web standard technologies such as HTML and CSS. We will see how to "think in joins", and use D3 along with SVG to create a animated bar chart.
Once you understand how D3 works, and how to use D3's APIs to create and manipulate the DOM, along with scales and axes you will be well on your way to creating your first visualization.
