Самая интересная ниша - это образовательные игры для детей. Именно здесь открывается простор для работы дизайнера, проектировщика и творческого полета. Текст и слово важнейшие инструменты общения и важны в дизайне интерактивных приложений. Как вкладывать смысл? Как управлять вербально впечатлениями и эмоциями? Ответы на эти и другие практичные вопросы вы найдете на встрече Design Camp. До встречи в Didgital October!

The increasingly popular trends of 'BYOD (bring your own device) to work' and 'work from anywhere' expose corporate IT resources to greater risk. Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) technology on Windows Server is designed to enable end-users to securely access corporate resources from devices of their choice whilst connected from inside or outside your corporate network. Learn how to configure conditional access policies that leverage new AD FS capabilities such as network location awareness, device authentication and multiple-factor authentication in a flexible and intuitive manner. Learn how you can be in control of what authentication methods are made available to end-users, how to plug-in additional authentication providers and how to configure distinct policies governing extranet access. This session explores how AD FS technology helps you avoid 'bring your own disaster' scenarios by confidently securing your corporate resources.
