Let's reboot into 2014 with a meetup featuring presentations from our own members.
Arun Ravi will present Mevoked, focusing on using technology to capture the emotional well being of children.
Peter Feytser will discuss Magikid, their Comprehensive Apps, the Chinese Market, and Translations.
Lin Tam will present Digitalmunch, a company providing app video production for marketing and branding needs.
Jacob Esparza, Co-Founder at "Making Friends," will share his journey in developing Making Friends Park, an iPad app for helping kids with special needs learn social skills. You will learn about opportunities in the special needs community, including organizations and resources for connecting with kids, parents, special education teachers and therapy providers. Jacob will also provide design tips for different learners, and identify what levers we have for meeting these unique sensory and usability issues. Finally, you will get a first-hand look at the major design decisions Jacob and his team made through their user research, customer development and user testing.
