Join Mobile Twin Cities on March 14th for two presentations.
The Mobile Development Spectrum
Nick Curran, US Director of Development, MentorMate provides an overview of the spectrum of mobile app development architectures. From full-on native to web clips, with long stops on the popular platforms in between like Xamarin and React Native, he’ll update us on the latest.
Nick Curran is MentorMate’s US Director of Development and a highly experienced and versatile software developer. He has worked in a wide variety of industries, and his technical knowledge runs the gamut. For the past several years, he’s focused on mobile, making him well versed in all sorts of native and cross-platform methodologies. Nick earned his MS in Software Engineering from the University of Saint Thomas and his BSB in MIS from the Carlson School.
Ensuring the UI/UX Design Develops as the Project Develops
Jay Miller, Chief Engagement Officer at MentorMate addresses User Experience and User Interface design as they continue to mature as disciplines, where once they were highly specialized, highly time intensive and requiring highly skilled individuals to lead. Now, it is a shared burden – it’s a team effort. With developers and designers working together, we can proactively shorten the timeline and speed to market to get the product in front of users allowing organizations to iterate much faster; instead of spending 6-12 months and sharing it, we recommend spending 6-12 weeks and sharing it as you go. During his talk, Jay will discuss the shared responsibilities of designers and developers to ensure the UI/UX design develops as the project develops, saving companies money and speeding time to market.
Print, Broadcast, Retail and Interactive all share one thing in common – providing value to the end-user. Another thing they share are 20 years of Jay Miller’s life. Whether designing an album cover for the Jayhawks, the on-air identity for Twin Cities Public Television or retail experiences for Bank of America, the purpose is always the same – bridging the gap between client objectives and customer needs.
Food and beverages will be served at 6:00pm. Presentation begins at 6:30pm.
