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?
Practical approach on pure coding, hardware, tools, libraries, applications, IoT solutions and new technologies in mobile devices.
UX, interaction, and mixing science with art - everything you need to design a great interface and more.
We invite you to take part in the workshop event at MCE - JITTER. With the option to choose from several different topics, each attendee will have an opportunity to participate in workshops related to technology, product and design of mobile applications. On top of that you can choose to roam freely around the venue where it’s going to be held, allowing you to pick up and try out new, exciting tech products. Stay tuned - we’ll be announcing more about it.
An unusual chance to meet a lot of exciting individuals - programmers, designers, trendsetters, managers, product owners and creators of future in the mobile world! We took a lot of care into assembling a rockstar team of incredible speakers. Are you as excited as we are? More coming soon.

Android App Security on a Budget
Even with all the time & budget in the world you can't make a completely bulletproof app, so how do you stand a chance with a real world app? Real world apps have limited budget, are short on time and the task priorities are often decided by the security oblivious client/project managers.
So what can we developers do to increase our app’s security and help protect our professional reputation? Where should we focus our app security effort? Isn’t security really difficult? and what gives us the biggest bang for our buck?
We will answer these questions and show that improving your security need not be technically challenging or time consuming. Also I’ll illustrate that it doesn’t necessarily need buy-in from stakeholders. We’ll be using commercially viable open source libraries to level up your app’s network verification, tamper protection, device integrity checks and more! while keeping in mind a shoestring budget!
Many of the presented security protection techniques can be applied to iOS apps too, however the focus and examples will be Android.

In his spare time Antoni enjoys cooking, sailing, and doing various DIY projects.
Hardware Hacking with Raspberry Pi [hands on]
The idea behind the Raspberry Pi project is to provide a small and cheap PC replacement, that can be used for teaching children basic computer science. But its able to do so much more. It has GPIO, a lot of processing power and multiple connectivity options. All this makes It a potent Arduino replacement. I would like to invite you to a hands on exploration of the Raspberry Pi GPIO port. We will start by interfacing some basic components (LEDs, buttons, etc). We will also play with a cool (and surprisingly simple) technique called Capacitive Proximity Sensing. Then, when we have learned enough, I will encourage you to let your imagination drift, and hack together a cool contraption.

The Fiction of No Friction: Thoughts on the Future of Human-Centered Design
Designers translate human needs and desires into experiences that fulfill them. Over the last decade I've practiced human-centered design and believe it demands more than just empathy with others; it requires a deep understanding of our own selves.
In this talk I will share thoughts on the future of human-centered design, the dangers of empathizing with the needs of the few, and the importance of designing for friction and self-reflection.
I will share principles and practical tools for designing experiences that help us — practitioners and consumers — know ourselves, and the impact that this knowledge can have on customer satisfaction, delight, behavior change, even transformation.
Matteo is the co-founder and CEO of Empatica, a company focused on wearable computing for the medical space, based in Cambridge, MA and Milan, Italy. The company recently developed Embrace, a medical quality wearable for monitoring Epilepsy, Autism, and other neurological conditions.

Making a Medical Wearable End to End: Empatica War Stories from the Trenches
Empatica develops wearable product for medical research and monitoring of neurological conditions. We have a end to end approach (making sensors, device, software, algorithms, cloud), which can be quite challenging. We will tell some stories in the development of Embrace, our latest product.
I have strong passion for the transformation process society, organization s and individuals go through when information from connected devices and persons become abundant. If we call this Internet of Things, Smart livong or digitalization doesn't matter, it’s a huge challenge and opportunity at the same time.
All organizations will face a need of transformation when their existing revenue streams will be challenged and new business models need to be put in place. Products will become more personal and become a more intimate part of a consumer’s life. Understanding the consumer in depth is required to create a new level of user experience, while at the same time having much respect for their personal life is crucial for success.
And all this in an extremely rapid pace where changes happen week by week, rather than year by year.
I have 10 years of experience as a Project and Program Manager within the Energy, IT, Manufacturing, Automotive and Public sector. The last years I’ve been working with all aspects related to an organization going through the digital transformation process from business models and organizational changes to hardware development and bringing new types of product into customers personal life.
The Digitalization Journey
When large blue chip companies approach digitalization it's often either with a sense of fear or somewhat misplaced enthusiasm and always with a lot of confusion. When making "analouge" companies successful through digitalization, the product or service is seldom the largest obstacle. This talk highlights areas within large companies that are crucial to not only succeed with digitalization, but to have it transform the whole organization.

Full-Text Search on iOS and Android
"Search" is one of those things that our users take for granted but is surprisingly difficult to get right. In this talk we'll dig into the essential concepts in implementing a proper full-text search, highlighting the challenges such as sorting by relevancy, term and column boosting, stemming and lemmatisation, and the brutality of compound words. We'll look at implementing full-text search with an embedded search engine as well as with the true workhorse of both iOS and Android developers alike – SQLite and its FTS tables.

Android Studio Internals
I'll talk about how the Android Studio IDE interacts with our Gradle-based build system and how it could affect your build speeds. I'll cover some lesser known parts of the build system and give a high-level overview of the new Instant Run feature.
Born in Bangalore, India, Shaam has an MBA from Harvard University and worked in the auto industry and financial services before moving to Berlin in 2012. As a passionate traveller, it was while backpacking around Europe in 2010 after completing his studies that Shaam first became aware of the need to improve the transport booking system on the continent; and the inspiration behind GoEuro was born. Although the trip was a fantastic experience, Shaam found he was spending too much time planning the trips rather than enjoying the travel. There was no centralised, clear platform, to compare train, bus, rail, and car hire options. The travel operators were not all presented in one search engine, and each country had a different way of showing data and managing user experience, making it a very challenging process, in need of change. He decided to move to Berlin and found GoEuro
PODs – New organization to optimize your team improving autonomy and alignment
Trust in your people is a very important part of GoEuro’s culture and PODs structure are the best example of it and of how to improve and dynamize in processes in product and tech teams. PODs are self contained independent units with a clear objective or product ownership that delivers superior results/value to our customers. They are self sufficient and cross functional teams independent of other PODs, and contain people with all the skills and tools necessary to deliver their part of a product: from design to release and maintenance
