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 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.

    Hi Jessica,
    Great thought! We've done a few on kid testing in the past ( and I'm sure we'll discuss it again in the future...

    Great meetup! After watching a few of them in one night, I wanted to learn more about best practices for user testing with kids. Could this be a future talk at an upcoming SVAK? I was really impressed with the volume of learning that Making Friends got while testing with kids.
