When the opportunity came up to attend the Artifact Conference 2013 my immediate reaction was “Oh Hells Yeah!” I mean come on folks who wouldn’t want to be in attendance with such great names who sweat night and day to figure this responsive web stuff out. Have you heard the pod cast? Have you seen their dedication to this making your mobile life a better place? Do you know what they have done to push our industry forward? Do you know who these people are?
It’s okay if you say “No” to any of the previous. Most of these nice people aren’t rock stars to every day people. But you know what, they are too me. Why? Because they challenge every mobile moment out there and they do what they know is best for not only their clients but the person who is living in this new responsive web world we live in today. There is an overt willingness to share everything we know going on within our industry and the Artifact Conference continued to share the love and the kindness in a huge way.
I don’t need to drop names because I think I harassed most of them on Twitter enough for one week. They didn’t seem to mind though, they just kept responding and hitting me back. Bottom line is my mind is blown, my little design heart is about to burst and I thank you for that Artifact organizers. I feel like I made a lot of friends in a really short time and it’s time to put this stuff into practice.
High level recap: Traditional thinking is not gonna work anymore. We as designers, developers, project managers, etc, need to adapt to our surroundings and make our clients aware of the new possibilities. The future is responsive, the future is touch, the future is design patterns, the future is the past doesn’t work anymore, the future is unknown but it’s okay because we are here for you and we’ll figure this out together.
I look forward to coming back down to Earth so that we can share some more thoughts and give you more insight on the process we are constantly evolving and working on here at White Lion. Thanks!
