This year’s presentations include:
Karl von Randow — Time to be a Beginner Again
In an industry that moves too quickly we are in a repeating state of beginning again; learning new technologies and starting new projects. Karl talks about his experiences from the birth of the App Store to the present, and how successful the energy of beginning can be.
Dave Wiskus — Be Memorable
Maggie Steciuk — Epiphanies Are Hard Work
Just like flossing, prototyping is good for us and produces better results, yet most of us don’t do it enough. Maggie talks about the value and importance of prototyping your apps, even before writing a line of code, and highlights some of the quickest and most effective tools she’s found for the job.
Li Xia — I Believe
Great leaders found great companies. Li discusses what makes a great leader and why you need to become one.
Simeon Saëns — Telling Stories
If you’re making an app, you can tell a story about it. A story about your app lets you resonate with people, stay in their heads, and be talked about. Simeon shares how he has learned to approach releasing apps — by treating each one as a story.
Emma Stabey — Developing apps with suits masquerading in jeans
Corporates now come in many forms, but mostly they all still seek ROI, professionalism, and timeliness. Emma offers a peek inside how SEEK approaches contractor engagements and product development.
Louise Duncan — Apps for Education
Amanda Rösler — How We Make Digital Toys
Amanda shares what she has learned about creating digital toys/apps for kids while working at Toca Boca.
Jaimee Newberry — Copy & Doughnuts
Copy is one of the fastest, easiest ways we can connect with our users and make their entire experience more meaningful. Jaimee talks about a few interesting ways to think about the personality and tone of all the words used in your apps.
Lex Friedman — Pitch-Perfect Press Pitching
As a senior writer for Macworld, Lex Friedman receives literally hundreds of app-related press releases every week. In this talk, he explains how to stand out from the crowd with your press release, and how to build your app while thinking about how a reviewer will look at it.
Scott Brewer — Creating Site Specific App Driven Experiences
In this talk Scott discusses some of the key concepts Art Processors use in creating applications that drive site specific experiences. Walk throughs of the creation and deployment of “The O” for Hobart’s Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) and “I, Animal” at Melbourne Zoo will be given along with some of challenges overcome to make for seamless experiences that allow for the enhancing of onsite visits.
David McKinney — Design Principles for Making Better Apps
It’s not about visual design, or aesthetics, or style, or taste. It’s not about flat design or skeuomorphism. Instead, Dave shares a series of simple, practical design principles to make your app more useable, more friendly, and more understandable. It’s about the things that will help your users get their tasks done and making it easy for people to fall in love with using your app.
