Plenary Talk P3: Making your killer applications... killer!

#P3: "Making your killer applications... killer!"
Paul Boag, Creative Director, Headscape

Gone are the days when our websites were primarily brochureware. Increasingly users expect a level of rich interaction previous reserved for the desktop. From course finders to contact address books, our websites are increasingly dominated by web applications.

However, best practice for these applications are still emerging. How do you wireframe an application with tools primarily designed for page based sites? How do you enhance your applications with AJAX without compromising accessibility? How do you test a web application?

What is more, as users expectations increase our budgets are being squeezed. How can you build a rich user experience with a limited budget?

Paul explores ways to take your distinctly web 1.0. applications to the next level within the constraints of accessibility, budget and tools.
