It has always been challenging to chase Android fashion. For many years, the “style-makers” were pushing designs that would look more appropriate on an iPhone, or that were beautiful and unique masterpieces, yet impossible to actually implement. This was compounded by the fact that the formal guidelines were unclear, and incomplete. This made the role of an Android Interface developer very challenging.
In recent years, I have participated in many high-profile “UI refresh” projects. I have learned a lot from these projects, and will share a few key lessons I have learned from this practical experience.
I will discuss:
– how to build beautiful interfaces that are universally styled, responsive and beautiful
– strategies to work with designers and stake-holders to enhance workflow
– which key Android framework components that should be used to build flexible UI code
– the important concepts of the new ‘Material Design Guidelines
Come to this presentation to learn the techniques you will need to be ready for the next Android fashion fad.
