My Notes on Jared Spool’s presentation – The Essential Principles behind Great Design Principles

As a perfect end to this fabulous event, our host Jared Spool talked about the essentials behind the design principles we apply to our individual projects. I personally really liked it, I think it was a great way to wrap up. Here are my notes on it: We need to provide clear copy explaining any […]

My Notes on Mike Lee’s presentation – Designing a Strategy for Organizational Transformations

Almost at the end of the event and it was Mike Lee‘s turn to illustrate us on the internal strategy of AARP towards going mobile. Overall very interesting data, although I didn’t really know how to write it down, and I’m sorry about that because he had a lot of interesting insights to share. I […]

My Notes on Luke Wroblewski’s presentation – Designing Mobile Web Experiences

So we’re almost done with the Web App Masters Tour, just two more presentations to go, and I don’t want to sound biased when I’m saying this but Luke’s was, to me and because of my current focus, positively the best presentation up to now. I was so excited to listen to all this immediately […]

My Notes on Kate Bringham’s presentation – PatientsLikeMe: Adventures with Data Visualizations

Kate’s presentation was a very interesting specialized topic. It was very interesting to see how they handle health data, mainly because I really had never thought about health data handling at all. It’s very delicate and complex data and I really liked how people at PatientsLikeMe are doing things. Here are my notes: Eight out […]

My Notes on Steve Portigal’s presentation – Design Fieldwork: Uncovering Innovation from the Outside In

I really liked Steve Portigal‘s presentation, it was a ver insightful description of how fieldwork should be handled and considered. I also remembered some of the procedures of my previous job and I was actually very surprised to find out how much of it we had been doing wrong. Can’t really change that now, since […]

My Notes on Julie Zhuo’s presentation – Data-Informed Vs Data-Driven Design

Facebook has to be one of the most interesting applied examples that can be presented because of the hug number of users it currently has. I had the opportunity of listening to Mark Trammell talk about Twitter on last year’s Web App Masters Tour at Philadelphia, and now I was able to listen to Julie […]

My Notes on Noah Iliinsky’s presentation – The Steps to Beautiful Visualizations

It surprised me that there was a talk such as Noah’s embedded in the program since it takes considerations back to a conceptual phase purely, and I personally really liked it. He basically went into detail with the premise “What’s obvious isn’t always that obvious bu it should be” and “People tend to complicate things […]

My Notes on Josh Clark’s presentation – Mobile Apps: Native or Web Based?

It was a very interesting lunch, meeting new people and talking personally with Luke Wroblewski, who I’ve admired a great deal since I met him last year in Philadelphia. And now it was the turn of Josh Clark. I gotta say I enjoyed his presentation in quite a special way because of his way of […]

My Notes on Bill Scott’s Designing for Mice & Men

As follow up to my Web App Masters Tour report, this last talk with Bill Scott from Netflix was focused on cross-platform experiences. Very interesting perspectives. My notes on it: Many companies think one size fits all, but the reality is we need to design for many different devices. Not just web, but mobile and […]

My Notes on Jared Spool’s presentation – Mobile & UX: In the eye of the perfect storm

Hello everyone! It’s the first day of this year’s Web App Masters Tour, Seattle stop, and I’m right here listening to what the experienced Masters have to say about what it takes to design a good experience today, highly focusing on mobile topics (which is why I’m here). I’ll be documenting the key points of […]
