Presentations: Fundamentals

Web 2.0 has many component parts. The core concept of the Web as a platform continues to evolve, and recent developments in cloud computing and platform-as-a-service are building out Tim O’Reilly’s original definition. We’ll discuss the state of the art and the relevant open questions around the building blocks of Web 2.0: user-generated content, tagging, collective intelligence, co-development with your users, cooperation, identity, trust, transparency, and data ownership and access. This track is designed to help those newer to Web 2.0 understand how to bring the core concepts of Web 2.0 together to deliver a great web application.

Sessions in the Fundamentals topic will happen on Tuesday, November 17.

Scott Porad (Pet Holdings, Inc)
The team behind the hugely popular I Can Has Cheezburger and Failblog created the web's leading network of humor web sites by putting the power in the hands of their users. The result is a user-driven content model that is disrupting traditional media business models, yet producing better content, happier users, and lower costs. Learn by example how it's done, best practices, and pitfalls.

Presentation

Lauren Cooney (Juniper Networks)
With the introduction of Web 2.0 several years ago, the focus on how to increase customer value, satisfaction and service through the web and through products is constantly changing. As customers and communities look to companies to create more usable and friendly products and websites, companies must adapt to this changing environment.
Karl Good (Truphone)
Mobile carriers and device manufacturers have recently launched app stores or announced plans for one. We’ll hear the developers’ perspective on this newly flooding channel. Is it necessary to build an app for each store? What are the pluses and minuses of each virtual location? How do you price? Does advertising work in mobile apps, and if so, how?
Phillip Torrone (Adafruit Industries), Limor Fried (Adafruit Industries)
Open source hardware is a term slowly working its way into many new projects and efforts, but what is it? There are a few definitions, some of which come from “open source software". Because of the openness of the movement it is increasingly being tied to Web 2.0 services.
Nancy Duarte (Duarte Design)
This interactive workshop helps presenters to develop presentations that engage their audience and turn them into participants. Presentations are collaboration between the presenter and the audience and never has collaboration been more important or the ability to develop and deliver clear, concise and compelling stories been so critical.
