There were some good sessions at Webvisions 2012 this year in Portland, OR. I had a busy schedule, so I was not able to attend the full second day. The highlights for me this year were the HTML5 game design workshop using ImpactJS and the ILM talk with Jeff White. I really liked seeing the visual progression of the Avengers and how large of a data flow multiple teams were working on.
Other great moments were the opening remarks by Baratunde Thurston. I’ve heard Baratunde before on Leo Leporte’s TWiT network, which is one of my favorite places for podcasts. He is a great and entertaining speaker. There was also a good talk on building web applications with web standards. I also heard a good talk on the various approaches to custom mapping.
