Designing the Conversation

Le sujet

Over time, your users will become more accustomed to and reliant on voice-based interactions with their computers--and, thereby, the web. Enabling them to complete critical tasks without a visual user interface will be crucial for the long-term success of your website.

So how do you design a "headless" UI? That's easy: You design the conversation.

Conversation is at the root of every interaction we have, be it with another human being, a game, or with a website. This session will discuss how to design every experience as the conversation you want to have with your users and how to ensure that the technological decisions you make with respect to HTML, CSS, and JavaScript respect and support that conversation.
