Infragistics at DevWeek 2012 in London next week Tobias Komischke / Wednesday, March 21, 2012 Next week, Monday 3/26 through 3/30, DevWeek 2012 will open its doors in London. It’s the UK's biggest software developer conference and Infragistics will be there with a booth and a session. The session is on Thursday, 3/29 @ 9:30am and will be about smartphone UX design: Smart UX design for smart phones Tobias Komischke, Director of UX @ Infragistics Designing for smart phones is not the same as designing for desktop or web applications. While many fundamental user experience design principles can be applied 1:1, there are unique factors that impact the UI design. This session provides concrete and applicable design considerations specifically for smart phones. The following topics will be addressed together with examples: Special considerations for small form factors (navigation & user flow, providing orientation, rich interactions, notifications vs. alarms, data entry, text size etc.) Special considerations for the context of use (one hand usage, usage while walking, contrast and glare effects, environmental noise impact) Smart phone design languages: iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone Ways to mitigate the drawbacks of touch screens; recommendations on gestures and touch target sizes, etc. Walking the line between ideating novel design and adhering to phone OS UI guidelines such as Microsoft’s Metro style guide. If you’re attending the conference, please join the session on 3/29 and visit us at our booth (remember the great T-Shirts?)! We’re looking forward to some great discussions!
