About

MCE is the conference created by developers and designers. Getting bigger every year it touches the aspects of all elements of mobile creation - development, design, UX, and technology. Our goal is to get a holistic picture of mobile devices of all kinds and take a next step in their development, getting to give users the “WOW” impression. 

Do we have your attention already?

Lectures:

The Living Interface: Mutative Design

Mutative design is a theoretical design methodology that would allow interfaces and experiences to be born, live, and evolve according to a user’s realities.

With mutative design, things like physical ability, lighting, and vision are accounted for automatically, allowing interfaces to be engaging and accessible to every user, without compromise.

In this session we’ll give a brief overview of the rationale and process behind mutative design and take a look at the first mutative sample app - Selene. We’ll walk through Selene’s first mutations from design and development perspectives, and explore what’s next for mutative design.

Anastasia Pistofidou

Fab Lab Barcelona



Anastasia Pistofidou is a freelance researcher, practitioner and educator on digital fabrication technologies, digital art installations, textiles and wearable technologies.
With a degree in Architecture AUTH Aristotle University, Thessaloniki and Master Degree from IAAC Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (Fabbots 2011) she has been working at Fab Lab Barcelona as coordinator and later as head of Advanced Manufacturing Office, specialised in hardware development, rapid prototyping and design to production, workshops, lectures and tutoring.
She developed a personal applied research line on textiles, soft architectures and innovative materials : fabtextiles.org. Experimenting with new materials and processes, combining digital fabrication techniques and crafts, her work is demonstrating how new technologies can shift the massive consumption of fast fashion to a customised, personal and local fabrication applied on education and every day life.
She is also a founding member at FirstV1sion.com and collaborates for the development of a wearable t-shirt for sports, that integrates a camera with a HD transmission system.
Her artistic public interventions are together with a multidisciplinary collective, chinos international.cc , an activist group of programmers , interaction designers, anthropologists and artists.


Lectures:

3d Print on Fabric [hands on]

This workshop will introduce participants to 3d printing techniques combined with textiles and patterns in order to created controlled forms, 3d volume and deformation. We will investigate in different fabrics and patterns that can create special properties on our textiles. No previous experience is needed Keywords: 3d printing, 3d modeling, 3d printed fashion, fabtextiles.

Fab Textiles Project. Open Sourcing Fashion Production for a Global Innovation Ecosystem.

Hyper connectivity through digital platforms is becoming symbiotic with the physical realm, creating synergies between bits and atoms in places like Fab Labs and Makerspaces all over the planet.
Digital fabrication laboratories are becoming incubators for innovative technologies and creators of spin off and disruptive initiatives that are being implemented in the “real” world. In Barcelona we have continuously contributing to the change of mindset on how we understand the gaps of our broken economy, and how to open the exclusiveness of means of production and networks through practical examples like: Smart Citizen, Fab Textiles, Open Source Beehives, Fab Store as well as implementations in global scale, such as the Fab City project, Fab 10 Conference, or FabLabs.io. The possibilities to conduct experimental research in a open laboratory gives the physical and mental space for innovative re-thinking, and offer the resources for visions to be materialised, tested, developed and make an active impact in people’s life, no as a linear process, but as a spiral iteration and implementation in the reality.
Fab Textiles offers a cross-disciplinary education and research platform, where production and culture through advanced technologies are making impact in the way we think and act towards the fashion industry. We work locally, while creating connected communities globally. We are not waiting for things to change, we are changing them from the ground up.

Kyle Fuller




Kyle Fuller started developing Swift the very day it was announced and he hasn’t looked back since. He’s an active contributor in the open-source Swift scene with more projects than he can count.


Lectures:

End-to-end: Building a Web Service in Swift

With open source Swift, Apple has created a new range of possibilities. You can now take existing knowledge and code and apply then to web application development.
 
This talk will show you how you can reuse existing skills to build and deploy your first web service in Swift.

Natasha Murashev




Natasha is an iOS developer by day and a robot by night. She blogs about Swift, WatchOS, and iOS development on her blog, natashatherobot.com, curates a fast-growing weekly Swift newsletter: http://swiftnews.curated.co/, and runs a Swift Job board: http://natashatherobot.com/swift-jobs. Twitter: https://twitter.com/natashatherobot.


Lectures:

Practical Protocol-Oriented Programming in Swift

Value types are at the core of Swift (seriously, mostly everything in the Swift standard library is a value type). But how do you avoid subclassing? That's where the power of Protocol-Oriented programming comes in. Learn how to structure your code to (almost) never subclass again! Practical everyday examples and ideas for your own code base will be included.

React Native: Open Source Continuous Build and Delivery

React Native was open sourced by Facebook a year ago.
Since then it had a massive success with the community and keeping the code stable ensures that we can steadily grow the platform.
In this talk I will share what tools React Native team uses to prevent code from breaking, automate deployment and speed up development: Open Source CI systems, BUCK (buckbuild.com) - build system that we use for our large Facebook codebase and GitHub bots.

Carl Smith

Ravensbourne University



Carl H Smith is Director of the Learning Technology Research Centre (LTRC) and Senior Lecturer in Creative Coding, Learning Technologies and Research based at Ravensbourne. His background is in Computer Science and Architecture. He is an academic expert and developer with over fourteen year's experience conducting R+D into the application of hybrid technologies for perceptual and cognitive transformation. He is working on the newly funded Horizon 2020 project '[WEKIT] Wearable Experience for Knowledge Intensive Training’ which will use the latest in wearable and motion tracking technology to create ‘wearable experience’ - an entirely new form of media. He has also worked on a number of large scale FP7 and Leonardo Life Long Learning European projects. His research interests include Embodied Cognition, Spatial Literacy, Perceptual Technology and Human Centric methodologies and Pedagogies.


Lectures:

Context Engineering Reality as a Medium

This session will investigate hybrid transformative technologies and techniques that combine the affordances of the analogue with the digital to enable a new era of Hyper Function, Sensory Augmentation and Perceptual Adaptation. As a result of these contextual interventions and augmentations the lenses through which we experience the world are becoming more adjustable than ever. 


The newly funded Horizon 2020 project '[WEKIT] Wearable Experience for Knowledge Intensive Training’ http://wekit.eu/ will use the latest in wearable and motion tracking technology to create ‘wearable experience’, an entirely new form of media.

Context Engineering will give us new abilities, control over our senses and the ability to develop new forms of perception, providing us with a new type of self-exploration. In this session we will discuss hybrid transformative technologies to enhance our perception and help us see, hear, and feel our environments in new and enriched ways. The following questions will be explored: 


-How adaptable is our perception?
-What is the impact of mnemonics and spatial literacy on memory and cognition.
-What are the biological risks of Context Engineering? 
-How can hybrid technological devices, of often- prosthetic alienation, help us to reconnect to ourselves and to the surrounding environment?
-How important is immersion for overcoming and subverting the human condition?
-To what extent can content create context?
-How can we find an appropriate balance in this hybrid environment that pushes but respects the human condition?
