Training 2014: Designing for Mobile Learning Devices #trg14

View & download a copy of presentation for 2/3/14 at Training 2014 in San Diego.

This presentation will provide you with the foundation you need to get started in mobile design and development. You’ll learn best practices for designing for mobile and what challenges you may face in platforms, smartphones vs. tablets vs. next generation touch devices. Floro will discuss and provide techniques for designing mobile apps that work, from sketching to wireframing to prototyping and launching a course, web app or mobile app. You’ll learn what tools you can use to help visualize concepts and how to prototype quickly without breaking the bank.

Getting to meet Steve Wozniak at The Wharton Web Conference

Wow, last summer I had the opportunity to attend The Wharton Web Conference which featured Steve Wozniak in a Q&A Keynote. I also had a special opportunity, thanks to Wharton and Tim Allen to have dinner the Woz.

Growing up on Apple, this was an amazing experience. During his keynote, Steve talked about Apple, Google, open vs closed systems, education and shared his thoughts on several technology trends. One story that stuck with me, was how he had less than a week to create the first disk drive for the Apple II right before a conference. He created the first gen version which then went into production and provided a way for us to save less than 1mb of data onto a portable media.

After dinner, he signed the groups phone or anything you had with you. I went with the iPhone 4, which was my phone at the time. A couple of the guests had him sign an Android device, which I expected to explode (haha).
