    Nikola Živanović / Hacking the design: a guide to extraordinary ux for developers and other non-designer folks

    Nikola, also known as Randoman, is a Belgrade based product designer. When not writing about himself in the third person he does UI & UX design, builds apps and brews his own beer.

    Debunking the myth that you need some magical “feel” or superpower to churn out decent looking UIs, this lecture is a simple enough guide that could (and should) be practiced by anyone, regardless of the level of their design skills. WARNING: We will skip the boring theory and jump straight into the colors, alignments, sizes, fonts and animations. These are immediately applicable, track proven tips that will give your app that delightful experience users are craving for. So be brave and get ready for the design.

    Martin Stanojević / Need for speed: Introduction to web performance optimisation

    Martin is an ASP.NET Web Developer mostly focused on the UI part of web apps. During the past several months, he was working on implementing the new design for Drey Busiess Portal and re-implementing Drey online service, where his focus was on optimizing HTML, CSS and JavaScript code.

    We all know the expression "time is money", but how much time do we spend on making our websites fast? Slow pages negatively affect even how users perceive the content, design and navigation of our website. This lecture will take you through the life cycle of an average web page and show some of the techniques that increase the speed in which your web pages are downloaded and displayed to the user, as well as some tricks you can use to make your app "feel" responsive and fast.
