In this workshop we will take you through the steps in thinking about (and preempting) user interaction and user experience design. Then we will outline ways in which we can evaluate, test, and analyze interactions to pivot designs leanly. This session will be highly interactive and will use examples from real startups.
Apps have changed the way we communicate, shop, play, interact and travel and their phenomenal popularity has presented possibly the biggest business opportunity in history. George gives you exclusive access to the secrets behind the success of the select group of apps that have achieved billion-dollar success. George Berkowski is an entrepreneur who has built businesses in manned space flight, online dating, transportation and mobile apps.

He is one of the minds behind the internationally successful taxi hailing app Hailo where he led the product team until September 2013. George studied rocket science and economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and business at the École Supérieure de Commerce de Paris.

Speaker: Jordan Lawrence Are you someone whose day job isn't design, but constantly works with designers? Have you ever wondered "what goes into making great UX, and why in the world is testing so important?!" Well, have I got good news for you! Jordan Lawrence here. I have a fantastic new talk about why words are important and why we should strive to delight our user. You'll learn the 6 gems needed for creating great UX. Everything from designing for your data, to things you can practice at home. Once you learn, you'll be critiquing every app you use and web page you visit in no time! You will start saying things like, "that app is awful. Let me tell you why..." OR "wow, the organization of this screen rivals that of a toddler's sticker book." Jordan has focused heavily in the last 4 years on RevCycle, along with countless other contributions such as: icon design strategy, referrals management, eligibility, bill estimation, provider search, and DevCon asset design.

Learn how Android Studio, the Android Support Library and Google Play can help you reduce your app size by using new tools and following simple best practices. Users are more likely to download an app and keep it on their device if it has a small download size and disk usage. Lean apps tend to perform better due to their smaller memory usage. All Android developers will walk away from this session with a new arsenal of tricks to slim down their app. Watch more Android talks at I/O '17 here: https://goo.gl/c0LWYl See all the talks from Google I/O '17 here: https://goo.gl/D0D4VE Subscribe to the Android channel: http://goo.gl/GEh1ds #io17 #GoogleIO #GoogleIO2017
The barriers to users finding and engaging with a specific app are significant. While efforts are always being put into mechanisms to increase app discovery, it's critical for app developers to make sure app experiences are engaging. How can you best connect with the consumer of your app? What makes for a great app experience? What are best practices to help reduce friction so that users convert? This talk will help answer these questions by covering app design best practices based on research.
