Return of the Progressive Web

Mark Dalgleish

Web sites have slowly been moving from a series of static pages into full-blown client-side applications, but this has unfortunately come with noticeable tradeoffs for progressive enhancement, accessibility, SEO and first-load performance. In this talk we'll run through a brief history of progressive enhancement, examine the problems we're currently facing, and look at how "isomorphic" JavaScript that runs on both the client and server can offer us a way out.

Mark Dalgleish is the lead organiser of MelbJS and Decompress, and a senior software developer at SEEK. Having got his start with HTML and UI design at a young age, he has since developed a love of software engineering, but always as a means to creating elegant, usable experiences.

The dirty business of UX in hospitals

Tim Evans

One of the biggest challenges facing hospitals today hospital associated infections (HAI). It is estimated there are over 200,000 HAIs each year in Australia, which result in prolonged hospital stays and increased costs to the health care sector and in some cases death. Together with Southern Health Isobar have undertaken a UX design lead initiative to look at the different reasons for this behaviour and how it might be changed to improve the quality of care for patients at the hospital. This talk will provide an inside look at how we researched the problem to uncover the true reasons behind why staff don’t wash their hands, how we then digested this research to create insights that drove the problem solving process.

Tim Evans works by day as a senior experience designer for Isobar Australia. With a keen interest in design and technology he’s also a key member of the Isobar Nowlab innovation team, exploring new forms of technology and how these can be applied to enrich people everyday lives.
