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:

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.

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.

Lectures:

User-Centered Service Design Innovations in Healthcare

Since 2014, more money has been invested in digital health than in traditional healthcare.
This is creating a shift in the industry towards more user-centered, democratic and customized processes.

What are the specific needs and constraints of the stakeholders
and how can design help enhance and support this development?

Workshops:

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.

Lectures:

Building Swift Libraries for iOS

I'll look into the internals of a Swift library developed for iOS that heavily uses UIKit and the ObjectiveC runtime. Since those are two dependencies you can't get rid off why not make the best out of them? I'm going to look into how I could stand of the shoulders of giants to deliver a slim but flexible Swift lib with the ObjectiveC runtime blessing.

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.
