Our next meeting is October 13th at CoCo Downtown Minneapolis
This month we team up with our friends at Mobilize MN focus on mobile UI and UX.
Asking for action when a user first launches your App is like popping the question at the front door at the start of a first date. We humans don’t interact this way, and neither should an App! In his presentation, Dug Nichols, will examine a few strategic UX principles designed to maximize Push Notification opt-in rates and build trust with your users. He’ll also take a look at how the strategy is working for Minneapolis startup Kidizen.
Dug Nichols, Co-Founder of radi8r and CEO at Kidizen, is a repeat entrepreneur with two previous successful Silicon Valley startups under his belt prior to Kidizen. He’s been designing for mobile since before the Treo and the RAZR and gets a kick out of building businesses that solve human problems with technology solutions.
UX/UI and the Big Updates: A Conversation with Ryan Johnson of BuzzFeed
We’re fortunate to have added the Vice President of Mobile Engineering from BuzzFeed, Ryan Johnson, to our October agenda. Ryan will share the latest efforts BuzzFeed is making on the Push Notification front. He’ll also discuss how the developer of an app with millions of users and thousands of downloads a day addresses major OS updates like those in iOS 8. This will be a casual presentation with plenty of opportunity for Q&A.
We hope you can make it October 13th!
Pizza and drink will be provided, compliments of Google for Entrepreneurs and Hyper IQ, beginning at 6:00pm with presentations beginning at 6:30pm. Register now via Eventbrite.
