Phill Farrugia - Real World Usage Patterns

Aug 10, 2017 · San Francisco, United States of America

Are you looking for Contract Work? email [masked]

People are always designing, developing and testing apps in an office where connectivity is fast and reliable. They neglect to cater for real world usage patterns on buses, trains and in places where connections are slow and unreliable. 

This talk is for both designers and engineers. It will deep dive into the concept of asynchronous operations and each of their states - Initial, Loading, Failure, Success. It will outline the ways designers can communicate these states clearly through User Interfaces, and it will provide ways that engineers can optimize their applications for unreliable network connections.

Phill is an Australian Software Engineer at Prolific Interactive in SF, who recently gave up Bondi Beach for Blue Bottle Coffee and BBQs for big slices of Pizza. Having studied Communications and Journalism, Phill writes, talks and is passionate about the role of language in the design and development of modern day software. When not writing code, Phill enjoys taking photos of people and places that he comes across on a daily basis.
