    Tweet my wedding dress

    Inspired by a love of rainbows and silly tech projects, I decided to make my own first wearable tech — a wedding dress full of lights that could be controlled by tweets from my friends and family! This talk will go over the tech I used (suitable for absolute beginners), the mistakes I made and the lessons I learnt. From using the Twitter API, writing my own API, coding for an Arduino and wiring the whole thing up to the worst bit — THE SEWING. I aim to share the message that it is ok to make mistakes, we all do! If you keep trying you can make something magical!

    Usability testing

    Testing usability of a digital product takes on a wide variety of test types and feedback processes that I will elaborate on in this talk. Designers, developers, product owners and anyone with a vested interested should all partake in this process, from defining the tests to measuring the success and failures of different usability testing.

About the event

We aim to provide a variety of interesting talks on peoples’ experiences in front-end development. Previously we’ve had talks on process, tooling, performance and technology, to name a few. Expect more of the same and lots more.

To kick off the evening there’s pizza (with veggie/vegan options) and refreshments (wine/beer/soft drinks/etc). All finished up with an obligatory trip to the local pub — if that’s your kind of thing.

See our code of conduct.
