San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Breaking Borders is an event for web developers and designers to come together, present and discuss the latest in cutting-edge knowledge.
With the aim to innovate and inspire the next best thing, and not be restricted by the boundaries we often think are in place.
A relaxed evening with food and drink to accompany 2 industry speakers and opportunities to meet some of your fellow designers and developers. And best of all, it's free.
This event sees us explore the theme 'Digital Evolution'. This involves us taking a look at the evolution of our technologies and the digital industry.
We are lucky this month to have 2 very talented speakers who have offered to share their vast experience and opinions with us.
Aral Balkan - @aral
Aral Balkan is founder and lead designer of Indie Phone, phone that empowers mere mortals to own their own data.
Indie: a tale of privacy, civil liberties, and a phone
Can a phone really help protect our civil liberties? Aral Balkan thinks so. And he’s embarked on an audacious journey to make one. Join us to hear the introduction of a two-year story that is only just beginning.
Ruth John - @rumyra
Ruth John wireframes, designs and codes for The Lab at O2 (Telefonica). She also tweets and blogs a bit too. You can often find her chatting about web development, building apps and how an extra div is not the answer to your styling problems. Either that or the lesser known Thundercats characters.
Make your browser dance
The Web Audio API, we've seen it, we've played with it, we've heard it. But how does a user interact with it? Let's take a journey through analysing sound and adding some visuals to amazing effect. You'll end up dancing and so will your browser as we use the sound data to trigger animations. Be stunned as you learn how to make sweet user generated visualisations - right here in your browser.
Held at Park House at the University of Reading, this venue is in the heart of the Thames Valley and the epicentre for digital learning in the South.
Chosen to reflect Breaking Borders' ideals of creativity, building on the past and allow for sessions which give the maximum chance for people to interact with each other and hear the talks in a relaxed, informative and social atmosphere.
