In design the user experience is paramount and getting the little details right can make a huge difference. In this presentation Brad talks about his experience designing interfaces for mobile devices and looking at how little changes can have a big impact on how we use them. You will be introduced to the world of human interface guidelines for mobile devices. What can we learn by comparing and contrasting the guidelines of these mobile players and how can we incorporate it into our apps and websites? What are the main differences in developing for these platforms and what do user experience designers need to take into account before starting a project? Should you focus on building an app or make your website mobile friendly instead?

Are agile and user experience design compatible? Can they work together or is agile a square hole to the UX round peg? We contend that they are compatible. We help you recognize your company's UX appetite, regardless of software methodology. We then look at how agile changes things, discuss some of the UX practices developers need to understand (including CRAP), show how UX and developers can collaborate, and finally discuss agile and UX in the wild.
