Software In The Sky

Each year for the holiday season, artists and engineers of AKQA collaborate with a mission to create a never-been-done-before greeting card. In 2013, we sent our software into the sky, allowing people from all over the world to send their holiday thoughts written in the stars. Join Brian Fegan and Yi Liu from AKQA as they discuss how the mobile web experience was concepted and built, and how it was transported to the virtual stars of Oculus Rift.

Danny Newman , Roximity

Software Nerds Making Hardware

Roximity CEO and Founder, Danny Newman, will talk through the details of their iBeacon hardware production, from 3D printed prototypes to breadboards and Bluetooth development kits, learning more than anyone knew existed about different battery technology. Danny will then discuss their approach to building a scalable platform that meets the needs of many different types of end users, as well as designing APIs and SDKs. He'll also discuss how our SDKs and APIs together allow for a multitude of different types of interactions and data gathering to meet a variety of use cases.

Video Everywhere

Internet video is everywhere - on our phones, watches, computers, eyeglasses, TVs at home and in stores, you name it. Considering the vast number of different viewing platforms, creating elegant solutions for displaying video ubiquitously can be complicated. But it doesn't have to be. Find out from Rodolfo Dengo, Technical Manager at AKQA, how implementing responsive video can simply and efficiently solve this in a repeatable, maintainable and easy to implement way.
