The great debates

Season 7 of the Boagworld show focuses on the great debates raging in the web design community. Whether it be responsive design vs native apps or flat design vs skeuomorphism, we are going to investigate the facts and discuss the options.

Suggest a topic

We would love your suggestions for debate topics. To make things more fun we are going to follow traditional English debating rules. That means you need to submit your debate topic in the following format 'This house submits that…'. For example 'This house submits that Paul is more talented than Marcus.'

To submit a topic just use the comments on this page and we will include it on the show.

Join the debate

Each show will consist of two debate topics that will be posted the week before to the Boagworld blog. Subscribe to the blog and then submit your arguments to the comments of each post.
