Getting touchy - an introduction to touch and pointer events


Beyond smartphones and tablets, touch screens are finding their way into laptops and even desktop computers. With hardware support for touch becoming increasingly ubiquitous, it’s time to explore what new possibilities are available to developers.

Patrick H Lauke will take us through the basics of handling touch in JavaScript — from making sure simple single-tap interactions are as responsive as possible, all the way to examples of full multitouch, gesture-enabled elements, with a particular focus on common pitfalls and browser inconsistencies.


Tickets are up for grabs here 11:00 on the 23rd of February. Make sure you're on the mailing list and you'll get a reminder email on the morning of the 23rd.
