RUX February: Designing for Real Time Communications

Wednesday, February 26, 2014, 6 PM to 7:30 PM

SnagaJob, 4851 Lake Brook Drive, Glen Allen, VA (map)

Web design is changing as the browser transitions from a static medium to a fully interactive experience complete with video chat, text, and data communications built directly into the browser. Arin and Mariana will go over the new HTML5 standard WebRTC that allows for video, audio, and data channels in the browser, with no plugins required. This new level of interactivity brings with it new UX patterns, and we’ll share what we’ve learned so far.

Arin Sime is founder and CEO of AgilityFeat, a custom software development shop in the US and Latin America which focuses on web and mobile development for the real time web. Mariana Lopez is AgilityFeat’s UX lead and will join us via video chat from Costa Rica. Mariana holds a Masters degree in Human Computer Interaction from Carnegie Mellon, and Arin holds a Masters in Management of IT from the University of Virginia. Arin and Mariana have teamed up to design real time applications for clients in logistics, IT consulting, and online training industries. The AgilityFeat team also edits a weekly newsletter on real time technologies and WebRTC at
