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:

Let the Symbols Do the Work

Syntactic symbol manipulation may be the universal way of deriving new knowledge in science and engineering, but the technique is still rarely used in the act of writing software. We will explore this alternate way of reasoning about code, while demonstrating the power of formal refactoring and its potential for automation.

Liam Spradlin

Touchlab



Liam Spradlin is a UIUX designer working primarily on Android. He’s the lead designer at touchlab, and a Google Expert in UIUX.
Liam has worked with clients including GE Appliance, the National MS Society, and the independent developers of apps like Nova Launcher, AllCast, Today Calendar, and Focus.
At touchlab, Liam helps partners craft Android experiences with great design as a foundational principle, whether the product is Android-first or expanding from other platforms.
Whether it’s type design, interface, or illustration, Liam spends a lot of his free time continuing to explore design. Outside of that, you can find him behind a camera or writing blog posts.


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.

Jasson Schrock




Jasson moved to Berlin last year from Silicon Valley to lead the User Experience team at Onefootball. He has worked for a variety of large companies and startups as both an employee and founder. Jasson was the first designer hired by YouTube after the Google acquisition and was able to participate in growing a startup into an international destination with billions of visitors per day. After leading multiple international projects at YouTube, he transferred to Google News and was tasked with building and managing their first user experience team. With over fifteen years of experience in design, he also holds a variety of international patents from interactive videos to recommendations and advertising systems.


Lectures:

Integrating UX Into The Company Culture

User experience is not just limited to designers. For a product to be effective and viable, the user experience needs to meet the core needs of both the users and the company. This makes everyone a stakeholder. However to help ensure that the right product is built it's critical that there is a shared language between roles.

Lasse Koskela

Reaktor Ventures



Lasse Koskela is an experienced technology and a methodology consultant. He has consulted and trained some of the largest organisations in the Nordics and worldwide in their adoption of agile software development, including Nokia, F-Secure, Nordea and HBO. Alongside his work in methodology consulting, Lasse works hands-on with mobile technologies. During just the past two years he has shipped several iOS, Android and even Windows Phone apps for leading consumer brands. Lasse has also written two internationally published books through Manning Publications and has presented his thinking to thousands of fellow professionals in international conferences as well as closed gatherings from small businesses to large entities such as the European Commission.


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.

Workshops:

Design Challenges - how to analyse information, how to form insights, how to divide them into categories to form design challenges. [brains on]

The design process should have a structure to be efficient and enable managing change. Creating a design challenge is a cruicial part of developing any project - after studies and research, after gathering insights comes the time to synthesize all the information and look for new ways to answer peoples' needs. A well defined challenge should be an effect of thorough work and not just intuition or pre-concieved ideas about solutions. It should describe the people involved and the final state we want to reach. If the challenge is defined correctly, it opens up new pathways to create new products - even those that are not so apparent at the first glance.

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 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?

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:

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?
