User experience for mobile with Roger Attrill from ThinkUI

Considerations for the user experience when transitioning content from the desktop to the mobile platform, whether that's websites, apps, or websites that behave like apps.

What you might want to consider when it seems to be too late for the ‘Mobile First’ methodology.

Designing the user experience around the constraints and capabilities that mobile provides and the types of user behaviour that mobile entails.

The relationship between desktop and mobile content and the cross channel experience.

There will be an in depth look at a couple of examples and the talk should be of interest to designers, developers, researchers (in fact, basically anyone) involved with, or just interested in, projects for mobile devices.
