Would you like to design your own app?
Almost all of us use various applications, or apps, on a daily basis, on our smartphones or tablets, for information, communication, entertainment, etc. Have you ever wondered how these apps are designed and set up?
The goal of this workshop is to introduce you to the word of UX (User Experience) and UI (User Interface). We will analyze the methodology and every step required to set up an application, the role of the designer, the technical requirements we must take into consideration before we start designing, we will play around with drafts and wireframes, and finally… we will implement our new knowledge in action, by creating and presenting a completed app on the screen of our smartphone.
