When Saturday, April 9 Noon - 5PM Where Infragistics Headquarters 2 Commerce Drive Cranbury, NJ 08512 Why Should You Attend? Designing great user experiences isn’t easy. It takes a great deal of knowledge, experience and passion. Now add the complexity inherent in legacy business applications and you start to get an idea how daunting it can be when the decision is made to take an existing desktop application and migrate it to the web. Key to a successful migration is NOT responsive design. It’s an understanding of how the web-based environment (and access to it via mobile devices) changes the user’s interaction dynamic. Allow users to get up from their desks and suddenly you notice that they want to do their jobs (and interact with your application) in ways not previously considered (work from the train anyone?).
