Modern apps are now mainstream for many businesses, but they require new skills and processes compared to traditional business applications. In this highly interactive workshop, you'll learn principles and concepts you'll need for modern app design, plus process options for adding design phases to your development. Hints and pitfalls for designing mobile and touch applications will be covered, but most of the content applies to all modern applications, including those on the desktop. You'll also be challenged to solve real modern app problems, and work in small groups to apply your newly-learned design expertise. You'll also see examples of modern apps to provide you with inspiration for your own circumstances. This workshop is appropriate for anyone working on or starting work on a modern UI stack, such as XAML, HTML5, iOS, or Android.

You will learn:

  • Learn the most important fundamental design principles that inform the design of modern apps
  • Discover a path to continue learning design principles on your own
  • See options for a structured design process
  • Learn specific design hints for mobile and touch applications
