Shane Ginsberg, Nathan Moody, Michael Neuman, and Rick Barraza discuss topics ranging from the critical importance of user empathy when designing and building software for people, to design's role in the age of ubiquitous computing and ambient intelligence. Online viewers provided several great questions for the panelists to explore. Lots of topics and important information for designers and developers alike. Tune in.
In this episode you'll get to explore the cross-platform mobile strategy we took with the project, and how we built our app using Apache Cordova framework, just once, with it working on any device a volunteer would want to use. We also dive deeper into how Visual Studio 2015 enabled us to build this app quickly and easily, along with how we took advantage of our own (free) Android emulator and other cool debugging experiences.
We'll end the episode with a tour of the mobile app we made over the 3-day event, with all source code available now on GitHub: https://github.com/htbox/
Adam Ralph was gracious enough to spend some time with me explaining NancyFX, an open source project for creating "lightweight, low-ceremony, framework for building HTTP based services on .Net and Mono." It is so lightweight, in fact, that Adam builds an entire web application using ScriptCS, a text editor, and his wits using this interesting framework. I've heard great things about the Nancy community as well.
