For our September meetup, Amit Jain will talk about Rethinking User Experience in iOS. With iOS 7, and now 8, design paradigms for apps have changed significantly. The change goes much deeper than just aesthetics. It spans the entire app development process and requires a revision in how we plan for and build apps. We will talk about how to architect apps with a focus on interactions, sensible animations and great user experience. We will look at ways to prototype and implement animations, customizing iOS elements, and weaving everything together in storyboards and interface builder. Additionally, to get your apps ready for the larger iPhones, we will discuss size classes introduced in iOS 8 and how to adopt vectors resources in your UI.
Folks, we have limited seating at this location, so if you decide to not attend please update your RSVPs as soon as you can so that wait listed members can plan ahead. Also, if you are on the wait list, please reach out to me, and we can set up extra seating.
