We wanted to create a small repository of sorts for our various presentations and talks at WordCamp Minneapolis 2014. Videos of our presentations can be found at WordPress.tv.
Designing For Interaction, Travis Totz
Touch, gestures and voice control are quickly becoming more important for designers (and developers) to think about and design for. Interaction can enrich a user’s experience of a product or service, and express character and feeling within those interactions. During this talk I will assist in equipping you with the process you need to design for interactive experiences on WordPress and on the web. How can we achieve clean, easy and scalable interactions that are optimized for every device? This talk will focus on current solutions from various experts in the field, as well as our best practices, and optional tools to use.

Topics will include how take advantage of unique experiences and opportunities that arise from working outside of your geographical area, how to overcome language and cultural barriers, and tools you can use to keep your project on track and successful.
