Input: Moving Beyond Web Forms

A Web application can't exist without users' input. We need the data,
but do we need Web forms to get it? Traditional Web forms—made up of
text fields, radio buttons, check boxes, and a Submit button—have been
the mainstay of Web application design. In ecommerce, social
networking applications, and productivity tools, Web forms continue to
define crucial Web interactions. Thankfully, new approaches for user
input are now giving designers more to work with and create better
user experiences.

Luke will explore several novel ways in which Web applications can
collect user input, through both mobile devices and desktop software,
without forcing users to complete lengthy, sequential forms. He’ll
provide detailed research-based solutions that articulate not only the
how, but the why, as well. You'll walk away with practical solutions
you can immediately put to use.

Luke Wroblewski is an internationally recognized product-design leader
who has designed or contributed to software more than 700 million
people use worldwide. Currently Chief Design Architect at Yahoo! Inc.,
Luke is working on forward-looking, integrated customer experiences on
the Web, mobile, TV, and beyond.

Luke is the author of two popular Web design books: Web Form Design
and Site-Seeing: A Visual Approach to Web Usability. He also publishes
Functioning Form, a leading online publication for interaction
designers. Luke is consistently a top-rated speaker at conferences and
companies around the world and is a Co-founder and former Board member
of the Interaction Design Association (IxDA).

Previously, Luke was the Lead User Interface Designer on the platform
team at eBay, where he led the strategic design of new consumer
products such as eBay Express and Kijij, as well as internal tools and
processes. He is also founder of LukeW Ideation & Design, a product
strategy and design consultancy, has taught interface design courses
at the University of Illinois, and worked as a Senior Interface
Designer at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications
(NCSA), the birthplace of the first popular graphic Web browser, NCSA
