Program Areas

Modern Web

An ecosystem of expressive semantics, beautiful interfaces and rich interactivity, the modern web is robust and evolving. Sessions in this area will explore modern web standards including HTML 5, CSS 3, Javascript and associated APIs, as well as delve into topics such as mobile & responsive design, offline apps, web graphics and the mechanics behind browser engines and networking.

Interoperability

In an ever-connected world, new strategies are needed for improving data access and system interoperability. Sessions in this area will discuss API design practices, the semantic web and microdata, accessibility with HTML 5 and ARIA, and standards such as LTI, PWA and CASA.

Data Collection

Mobile, tablet and wearable computing has created new models and opportunities for data collection. Sessions in this area will discuss how educators, researchers and others are leveraging these mediums to improve participation and interaction.

Gamification

No longer just a pastime, games have become an integral way to connect, engage and immerse. Sessions in this area will explore mobile and modern web technologies that enable this growing field, as well as delve into the strategies for using games to better achieve learning, research and business outcomes.

From Last Year...

  • Conferences are usually more about meeting people and sharing experiences than learning new things. MMWCon was different: not only did I connect with other developers, I also learned a lot of new, cutting-edge tools and techniques.
    Logan Franken
    Application Developer, UCSD
  • It was definitely impressive how the conference this year held everyone's attention until the end. Which is not at all an easy thing to do, and I attribute that to the great talks, organization, and logistics.

  • Good problem to have: tough choosing which track to be at.
