Earlier this month we brought our expertise in mobile development and design to MobileUXCamp in DC. This BarCamp event gave us the opportunity to interact with other motivated and creative mobile enthusiasts. We facilitated discussions around several topics including one on how mobile design standards have influenced web design; we also talked about our UX process, and even delved into consulting strategies.
We enjoyed listening to Matt Forr, of MindGrub, speak on the differences between the mobile and desktop experiences and how to display content to the user in his Responsive vs Redirect talk. He raised interesting questions such as, “should all content be available to the user”; this is something we’re all thinking about right now as more companies are deciding between creating mobile versions of their websites or optimizing their existing sites for mobile.
Mobile development is new enough that best practices for design and development are constantly in flux and the future is being created now. MobileUXCamp provided an open forum to join mobile experts in dialogue on the topics that are relevant and pressing in the mobile space today.
