In the context of « ILOCE » workshop of the web and mobile design option at the HEAJ, we are four students to have viewed the conference « Breaking out of the Tetris mind set ». This conference of Christian Heilmann was given in Düsseldorf on the occasion of the event Beyond Tellerrand in 2017.
Chris Heilmann is native of the environment of the radio journalism. He is an important person in the improvement of the web. He worked for some companies like Yahoo and has formed numerous people there. He worked at Mozilla to develop the HTML5 and Firefox OS. He wrote two books and a lot of articles and contributed to other writings.
For about twenty years, the Internet has been more and more used. A phenomenal amount of data is conveyed all the time, and this through a multitude of web sites. As for any domain, opinions between creators diverge, collide and return in rivalry. Web designers can be separated in two big groups: the conservatives and the pioneers. Every current of thoughts can be separated in various groups, each with their preferences of tools/working languages/method.
This not so homogeneous set of personalities forms contemporary web, sometimes practical, sometimes beautiful, sometimes vague. In the conference, Chris speaks of these various groups and forms his personal impression of the future of the web.
The subject approached on this conference is very interesting for every person who is closely or remotely concerned by the web. It is important to know in which environment we evolve on the Internet. For those who would not have the courage or the desire to watch 40 minutes of the conference, we drafted an article which summarizes this one.
