As always we have 3 awesome talks for you.

You’re probably a designer

Front–end is all about bringing products to life. Whether you realize (and like) it or not, if you’re coding up a site, you’re probably making design decisions. Scott’s talk is all about how we can be responsible for delightful experiences using the skills we already have as front–end developers.

Scott is a freelance product designer and front–end developer.

Martin Blackburn - @walking_fishy

Martin has been the senior front end developer for 4 years at Labelmedia and organiser of Leeds php and part time blogger. He'll be talking about the usage of style guides and the role they can play in the design and development process, both visual and code.

Mark Skeet - @mark_skeet
