Hi Visionaries,

I'll be teaching a 6 sessions course on Mobile Design and Prototyping for IOS 8, IOS 7, Android KitKat and more in Silicon Valley (Santa Clara!) If you have any questions, please free to contact me directly. If you'd like to register for this course please click on the link below and not the RSVP button.
Hope to see you there!

6 sessions: Only Saturdays, 9 am-3pm, Jun 21, 2014 - Aug 2, 2014

About this course:

There are hundreds of thousands of mobile apps in the App Store, but only a small portion of them have innovative design principles, friendly user interfaces, and most importantly, widespread adoption by users. In this hands-on lab and lecture course, you will learn the core principles for creating effective user interfaces for mobile devices incorporating iOS 8, IOS 7, Android KitKat, Windows 8, responsive/parallax design, lean mobile UX, form factors, GPS, gestures, tactile experiences, sensors, commerce, tagging and more. You will discover useful patterns for developing mobile products and design a mobile user experience using an iterative and user-centered design process.

Additional topics include: Google Glass UX/UI, wearable computing, and augmented reality.

The school provides short-term licenses of commercial prototyping tools (Balsamiq Mockups and Fluid UI) for sketching wireframe and mobile prototyping. Designing your own prototype will provide opportunities to explore new types of touch- and gesture-based user interaction that can expand the functional possibilities of your apps. This exercise will demonstrate how mobile products can be rapidly developed and released to the market.

The course covers the trends, industry practices and techniques for the most popular platforms, and by the end of the course, you will have created an engaging user interface prototype for a mobile application or the web. This mobile prototype will incorporate the new conceptual and technical skills learned, and can also function as a portfolio piece for future endeavors.

Topics include:
- iOS 8, IOS 7, and Android KitKat Interface Guidelines
- Responsive Design/Parallax Design
- iOS 8, IOS 7, and Android UI patterns
- Google Glass Interface Guidelines
- Lean Mobile UX
- Windows 8 UX/UI design
