About this workshop

How do you create best-of-class customer experiences in the native iOS and Android mobile and tablet environments and mobile web?

Majority of the workshop will be activity-based, focusing on hands-on applications of user-centered design approaches such as storyboarding user scenarios, user testing of paper prototypes using Rapid Iterative Testing and Evaluation (RITE) and practical application of mobile design patterns.
