Building amazing (software) product experiences

schedule Nov 9th 03:10 - 03:40 PM place L10 Small Room

Around 10 years ago, the "App" revolution made it easy for consumers to access a wide range of product experiences and created a new paradigm in design practice. Over time, the overall user experiences when interacting with products have improved steadily. Present day applications no longer have the luxury of providing anything less than an amazing product experience, if they wish to retain consumer mindshare.

This talk aims to run through instances of well designed user experiences and moments that provide customer delight, along with providing pro tips on how to design amazing product experiences.

 
 

Target Audience

Product Managers, Developers, Business Analysts and anyone interested in design

Interest in the area of design. No other technical skills required.

    This talk aims to help you, the developer, start with machine learning as quickly as possible.

    Go from zero to hero, and get an understanding of how deep learning neural networks work, build and train your own DNN in TensorFlow and deploy it in production using TensorFlow Lite.

    The talk will utilise a blend of high-level theory and (hopefully working) live demos that aim to demystify Machine Learning and work as a primer for further exploration.

    Andrew Murphy - EQ for your IQ - Experiments in Testing and Teaching Emotional Intelligence

    Talk
    Beginner

    "Soft skills" is a terrible name, isn't it? There are all sorts of challenges in leadership that one would typically class as "soft skills" but are most definitely hard. Letting someone go, for example.

    I prefer "Emotional Intelligence" or "EQ", to counter-balance your IQ.

    For the past 2 years I've been teaching EQ to Software Developers and I will layout the model I use to train it ... and the concepts I use to convince the more technically minded individuals that it's important.

    Oh, and we will also test your own individual EQ.

    The Android Theming system is powerful but easy to misuse. Proper use of it can make themes and styles easier to maintain, make branding updates less scary and make it straightforward to support dark modes.

    This talk will start with a crash course in themes and styles. We’ll cover the platform, AppCompat and MaterialComponents functionality that you should know about and build upon. We’ll look at how to support both light and dark modes without going crazy. We’ll show how and when to create your own theme attributes, how to tint drawables, how to theme sub-sections of your screen and how to isolate your theme dependant resources to make them maintainable.
