First Featured Presentation
What all Android developers should know about UI
We often talk about how for years iOS apps simply looked better than Android and we shouldn't blame Android developers. As an developer community though, it's perhaps not your 100% your fault, but it's definitely your responsibility. Hear from Echo's CEO Carlos Carbonell and Creative Director Rainer Flor about the important topic of mobile UI.
- Why design & development should work together
- Best Practices
- Following the 'iOS Standard' (is there one?)
- Cautionary Tales
- UI and UX: are not the same thing!
- Great examples of good design
Second Featured Presentation
Incorporating Video and Photo into Android Apps (Part 1 of a 3-part series continuing in the following 2 meetups)
Android devices allow people to have access to a high-quality photo and video camera at all times. The Android API enables developers to capitalize on the ready availability of a camera to incorporate photo and video into your apps.
In part 1 of this 3-part series, we'll talk about how we can take advantage of Android's Intent-based programming model to add photo & video capture to your apps in as few as 5 lines of code.
Jim Wilson from PluralSight will be presenting.
