Event Details

Note: Dates have been changed to Wed 4th and Thu 5th June 2014

The do.collaboration team will be offering a free 2 day course for West Midlands developers who are interested in learning how to develop apps for multi-user multi-touch tables. It will provide practical instruction and advice on how to design code and deliver touch table experiences.


The course will be delivered by the do.collaboration technical development team, who have a wide range of specialist expertise in the field of digital museums, the computer games industry and human computer interaction. As part of the Digital Heritage Demonstrator project, they have recently delivered touch table experiences at the Hive in Worcestershire, the new "Birmingham, it's People, it's Histories" gallery and the Staffordshire Hoard gallery for the Birmingham Museums Trust and are soon to launch a touch table at the opening of the new Library of Birmingham.


While the course will partially focus on heritage and cultural applications, the skills learned will be completely transferable to a wide range of commercial sectors.


Throughout the 2 days there will be practical coding exercises as well as various hands on activities, demonstrations and opportunities to ask advice from the team.

Some of the topics covered will include:

Introduction to touch table hardware

Usability issues relating to multi-touch, gestures and 360

Experience design

Software development tools and libraries:

WPF/surface SDK

HTML 5 authoring

Testing, deployment and evaluation 

This workshop is open to both developers from SMEs and individual freelancers. However they must be based in the West Midlands. Due to the practical coding elements of the workshops some experience of either C# or JavaScript is required. The course is PC based.


The course will take place on Wednesday 4th and Thursday 5th June at the Chowen and Garfield Weston Foundation Digital Prototyping Hall. Places will be strictly limited.
