This Saturday June 18 I will be co-presenting a session with Paul Laberge titled On Mobile App Design: Experiences that Don’t Suck at North by North East Interactive (or nxne-i) which is a week long conference held from June 13th-19th.
What is nxne-i all about? (taken from nxne website)
It starts with the presentations. Three solidly packed days of presentations, both technical and creative. Presenters from around the world have been hand-picked for their skill and talent, and all are eager to share and meet you. It’s also about the networking. Being able to meet and talk to people who share your passion for this industry. Meet them at the presentations, in the exhibitor hall, or at the evening party.
I’ll be there discussing things to look out for as a designer and developer. It’s all small things, but it’s the small things that can completely ruin a user’s experience when using your app!
Here is a description of the session.
On Mobile App Design: Experiences that Don’t Suck
Clearly, modern mobile devices have changed the way we interact with the world, each other and technology in general. What is true about this disruption is that while state of the art hardware makes it possible for people to create amazing apps, it’s the creative implementation of those ideas that really make the apps and games popular. In this session, we’ll show you how mobile app designers and developers create effective experiences for their apps and why design is absolutely essential to the success of those apps. Examples will include sample applications on the Windows Phone 7 platform and a discussion on Microsoft’s Metro design language, with the intent of showing how designing great experiences on mobile platforms is not a cookie-cutter process.
