Tweak Your Talk (A Cranky Talk Workshop)
    Friday March 9, 2012 2:00pm - 6:00pm @ Holiday Inn Town Lake (Marigold) (20 N. IH-35, Austin, TX 78701)
    Who gives a crap that you spoke at South By Southwest? It only counts if you crush it. We created the Cranky Talk Workshops a couple of years ago in a dedicated effort to eradicate mediocre conference presentations and now we’re bringing our six-pack of kickass to Austin. If you want to test drive your SXSW panel or solo presentation in front of a critical, but highly supportive workshop audience, consider participating in this intense event. (You must sign up in advance at http://www.crankytalk.com). And if you’re speaking at another conference soon after SXSW, we can help with that, too. Just stop by during the workshop with your prepared presentation and get some Cranky one-on-one coaching. (No advance sign-up required.) What’s the deal is with all this Crankiness? Cranky means that we don't waste our time or the time of others. It means that we have no patience for bullshit so feedback is direct and blunt. You have been warned.

Mind Reading: Seeing Needs Users Don’t Articulate
    When your product is facing serious competition, knowing what unmet need still exists is crucial to planning your next move. But in surveys you find that everyone is reasonably satisfied with all of the key features in your competitor’s products and they do not perceive that their experience could be better than it currently is. So how do you identify opportunities that seem not to exist? In this session, using Bing’s insight development practices as a case study, we will discuss techniques for gaining deep understanding of and empathy with customer’s pain to spur product innovations. We will share insights that we’ve identified that point to broad cultural shifts in how people think about knowledge that impact what is perceived as trustworthy and what is complete information required to make important decisions. We will share both how we were able to identify these needs and specifically what these needs are in an effort to encourage thinking about how to better meet them. This session is sponsored by Bing.

Building Great Games in HTML5
    I took a platform game published on Win/Mac/iOS and its 100,000 line C++ code-base and turned it into an HTML5 game running on desktop, mobile and even TVs. This talk is the story of how that happened and also gives some great tips and tools for anyone aspiring to make games using HTML5.Building a game is never a trivial job and doing it on a platform in constant development can be even harder. That said, the advantages of HTML5 greatly outweighs the disadvantages. HTML5 is quickly turning into a great game development platform which offers well tested solutions to many of the peripheral problems you normally have to deal with when making games.With these solved for you already you can focus on creating a great game and an awesome user experience!I'll share what I've learned and hopefully the talk will make the process easier for anyone else building games in HTML5. I'll also talk about a new exciting open source project allowing you to leverage WebGL and COLLADA in your games.

Dear Google & Bing: Help Me Rank Better!
    If you build it, they might not come, if you haven't thought about how search engines view your web site. Forget testing for Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari. Search engines are the common browser that everyone uses. The good news is that search engine optimization (SEO) doesn't mean terrible design or some type of black-magic trickery. Rather, there are good, sensible things that everyone should do that pleases both search engines and human visitors. In this session, representatives from Google and Bing provide this type of advice. They'll even get you up to speed on the impact that social media is playing on search results. Even better, it's all Q&A. Bring your top questions about how they rank sites and get answers directly from the source.

Client-Side Templating in jQuery
    This session will review the options available today and in the future for client-side templating in jQuery. We will show the libraries available today, including jQuery Templates, knockout.js, and JsRender/JsViews.The past year has been rather tumultuous in the jQuery Templating space. Before the jQuery Templates plug-in even had a chance to come out of beta, the project was terminated in favor of newer templating libraries currently under development. However, even though it is still unclear which templating library is the best to use, the concept of client-side templating is too important to ignore or put off using. This talk will review the various options Web developers have today for performing client-side templating, and will present guidance on what to look for in the coming year as newer libraries are released.

Jeffrey Tambor's Acting Workshop
    Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development, The Hangover) returns to SXSW with a version of his workshop that film conference attendees have loved for years. By breaking down the performing process, he’s explored the practical and philosophical approaches that lead to a great performance. Jeffrey has worked with some of SXSW’s favorite actors on stage, helping them (and the audience) to identify and release those fears that keep us all from true artistic freedom. This year, Mr. Tambor will bring his Workshop to both Film and Interactive conference attendees. His career as a Master Teacher of actors has given him insight into human behavior that translates to helping ALL people. Part one-man show, part seminar, part question and answer and endlessly entertaining, Jeffrey’s hilarious and empowering presentation inspires the viewer to discover the artist within.

Simplify CSS Development with Sass & Compass
    Simplify and speed up your CSS development with Sass. Overcome browser differences – particularly with CSS3 – and build grids the right way with Compass. Sass is a CSS meta language that brings more functional programming to the css language and complies to standard browser supported CSS. It adds tools like variables, functions, and mixins, as well as compilation tools for debugging and optimization. Compass builds an additional framework of tools on top of Sass. It adds mixins for almost all the new CSS3 modules to abstract away syntax inconsistencies and browser prefixes. It also enables the development of CSS frameworks *the right way*, using semantic classes instead of presentation oriented classes. Compass has ports Frameworks like Blueprint, YUI, 960.gs, as well as even some Compass only ones like Susy. On top of that, there are also loads of extensions to Compass for everything from CSS3 button generators to more complex sprite and image generators.
