People using mobile devices demand excellent user experiences from your apps. In this design-heavy workshop for existing object-oriented programmers, you’ll learn how to craft an application that’s not only functional and useful, but also a pleasure to use.
You’ll learn how to think about designing a mobile app that users love: we’ll start by building wireframes, and you’ll learn how to translate those wireframes into actual working code, and how to evaluate your designs for future improvement. Attendees will come away confident with the skills to build an application for for any mobile platform rivalling the best iOS apps in usability and look. You’ll come away with a functional app that looks pretty and works great on the latest phones and tablets.
You don’t need to be an existing mobile developer to attend this workshop, and while we’re teaching the coding parts using the Android SDK in this workshop (and you don’t even need to know Java to enjoy this), it’s a largely platform-agnostic workshop that focuses very heavily on teaching you great design skills
