DESCRIPTION
"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
-Arthur C. Clarke, "Profiles of the Future", 1961 (Clarke's third law)

At most companies, designers and engineers live in completely different worlds. For many designers the work of engineering is indistinguishable from magic. This unfortunately makes creating a finely crafted user experience much harder than it should be. Not knowing what is possible or proposing the impossible both hinder the synergy between design and engineering. Understanding the interface engineer's bag of tricks can go a long way to closing the gap between these two worlds.

What is now possible in the browser? And what is still hard to do? In this session, Bill will focus specifically on the challenges and the opportunities for DHTML-based web sites and applications.

Drawing from 25 years of experience in designing and engineering interface solutions as well as leading design and engineering organizations, Bill will provide a set of guiding principles as well as concrete, real world examples of what is now possible and what is still hard to do given the current technology landscape.
