Can we learn from other professions? Sure!
On the 27th of May, in the beautiful city of Leiden, I will be one of the speakers at the wonderfully eclectic GeeUp conference. I am very much looking forward to listening to all these fantastic speakers. There will be talks about some very, very interesting subjects: what about the legal side of writing code? And what does it mean to provide support for the code you wrote? There’s a talk about ethics and clients. There’s one about making sure your responsive design keeps working once it touches a CMS. A talk about things we can learn from other professions when it comes to responsive design — by yours truly. There’s a talk about automated testing. And there’s a talk about guerilla user testing.
There is room for one more talk, and Lodewijk Schutte would love to hear your ideas. I suggested there should be a talk about inclusive design. The idea that we can create exciting experiences that work for everyone. I think this is the coolest attribute of the web. I suggest you suggest the same topic.
