In fact, many senior citizens today use their phones as an assistive technology through their mobile applications. Considering this use of mobile devices by older people, and most importantly that the global population is rapidly ageing, it is now more relevant than ever to design mobile interfaces that focuses on their needs. Such needs relate to certain changes that people face while ageing, which have an impact on how they interact with a mobile device. However, most of the mobile interfaces are not designed optimally for older people. To address this, some usability and accessibility guidelines for older people have been suggested. But, there is no evaluation on how and to what extent the industry is implementing these guidelines, which will be the focus of this talk.

    What we're about

    GDG Dublin (Google Developer Group) meets on the last Tuesday of the month in Google HQ in Dublin.

    The typical meeting format is a 18:30 kick-off with some food, followed by talks and Q&A until around 21:00.

    The group has a broad scope, covering issues from cloud to mobile and everything in between; while the group does have some bias towards the many innovative technologies developed by Google, the group is generally very open - this manifests in terms of interest in alternative and complementary technologies to those offered by Google, technologies which are not Google specific (eg HTML5) and engaging with other companies. The group also organises hackathons, codelabs & workshop from time to time.

    The group's activities are generally free and all are welcome.

    Disclaimer: GDG Dublin is an independent group; our activities and the opinions expressed here should in no way be linked to Google, the corporation.
