Design Matters - User Interface Design for Android - Suzanne Wensveen (UNITiD)
The second presentation of the evening is given by Suzanne Wensveen. She is going to take us on a journey to designing an Android application. It begins with defining the goal and preconditions and ends with the delivery to the developers.
Suzanne Wensveen is an Interaction Designer at UNITiD. UNITiD is a Design Agency that creates designs for digital applications that are useful, usable and meaningful to people.
She is also the creator of AndroidPatterns.com.
"Android design patterns" - Raul Portales (Platty Soft)
The consistency on Android UI and its patterns is one of the challenges of working with the platform. To help with this, Google created the Android Design Site explaining how things should be. But the UI components are only available on newer versions of Android... What to do???
In our last presentation Raul will present the main UI paradigms that Google is pushing forward and discuss them.
Raul is an entrepreneur who focuses on Android. He has over 5 years of experience in mobile development. He landed in Amsterdam to work at Hyves, Nowadays he works on his own apps and games as well as freelancing for other Dutch startups such as Layar or Fashiolista.
