Presentation: Clipboard Meets Mobile: Integrating Mobile Apps into Your Business

This is a great opportunity to learn about how to fit real world tasks into a mobile app.

Please bring your domain areas and use cases and let's have a spirited discussion about how make powerful mobile apps that successfully solve real world problems.

The talk will focus on the critical issues of mobile app design:

  • what to present to the user and when?
  • what to cache on the device?
  • what of all the use cases included on the desktop need to be left off the mobile device?
  • what operational details of device use need to be captured, managed and stored for future analytics?
  • when do you interrupt the user and what kind of interruption?
  • the importance of abstraction and “white label” approaches

This is not about user interface design, and not about programming tools or libraries, but rather about how to think through the actual user needs and translate them to the very particular and constrained world of a mobile device.

Again, I urge you to bring real world problems so we can bring alive the principles with your examples.
