Mobile UX / UI - Pushing the Boundaries










As the mobile development industry continues to accelerate, it is critical for us to revisit user experience and user interface design. We'll clearly differentiate the two disciplines and feature a group of speakers who make it their mission to do nothing other than provide the best UX and UIs they possibly can. At this meetup, we'll cover the following areas:

  • Definition of UX vs. UI
  • The latest trends in mobile UX
  • Platforms & tools for getting there
  • Native vs. mobile web and the impact on UX
  • What really happened at Facebook?
  • Where industry is headed
  • And more...

App premiers:

Treater presented by Courtney McMahan, Product Manager, Treater

More meaningful than a “like” or a post, but less formal than a present, Treater makes it easy for friends to instantly send and receive “Treats.”

YellowFlag presented by Jason LaFollette, CEO of Citrrus

YellowFlag provides a virtual tailgate for you to communicate with your friends before, during, and after college and pro football games.

Product demo:

    Incredible array of new products on "Lumina Day"; I find it interesting that the data-driven design that makes so many web projects successful is often forgotten in the mobile space due to the importance of successful mockups and UX

    Will there be an opportunity for us to show off our own UIs if we wish?I'm far more interested in discussing dynamic styles rather than native vs web, in which the answer is always that native provides a better experience.
