geekSessions 2.0: The Art and Science of UI @ Founders Den

For the next Session, we’re bringing together a great group of people to discuss the ever evolving world of UI development. We have retro game emulators written in HTML 5, Flash interpreters written in Javascript, new tools like Unity, Mobile platforms, Multi-touch, and more. The field has never been more compelling or more complex.

Thanks to geekSessions alumnus Jonathan Abrams, we’re teaming up with Founders Den to host the this event.
