Happier deployments through gradual feature rollout
Releasing a big change to an application, whether a large overhaul of
the UX, system migration or upgrade to the internals, can be daunting.
Will the change work technically? Will it make your users happy and
improve the desired metrics? This talk discusses strategies and
technologies you can use to gradually roll changes out to gather early
feedback and prove your assumptions. It includes in-depth looks at
some technologies available (including the rollout gem), as well as the
part that gradual feature rollout has to play within your agile
These are all true stories, most of which Iíve been involved in. Iíll
cover experiences of products and projects of varying sizes, talk
about different solutions for different environments and, just to be
fair, I include the humiliating (character-building) mistakes Iíve
made along the way.

Gavin Bell's Creating Social Applications
Creating a successful social application means building a model of a task we commonly do and understanding the social motivations for your community and the individual. The task and the community may vary widely, but the concepts of social objects and the smallest useful application (or minimum viable product) give focus to the design of the application. Gavin Bellís two day Creating Social Applications course teaches you how to create social applications for the web or mobile, as described in his book. Find out more here
Richard Clark's HTML5 Mobile Mastery
Over the course of three action-packed days, HTML5 Mobile Mastery covers
all the new features in HTML5 with an eye toward practical applications,
especially for mobile application development. The course aims to be
highly practical, too, outlining current browser support, trends in the
market, common gotchas, and how to make the new features work in older
browsers. To find out about learning objectives, course dates and how to
