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?

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.

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.

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.

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?

Lectures:

Design Sprints: No, Design Doesn't Go Faster, You Just Make Better Products.

Considering creating a new product or re-think of an existing one? Why not increase your chances of success with a design sprint? Design sprints are time-bound prototyping exercises that help your team explore new solutions, test product ideas, and validate your findings—all in a short amount of time.

Organizational Dynamics of Innovation

It is not the strongest that survives, rather the most adaptable. What structural, behavioral, cultural, and organizational factors play into a company's success in producing hit product after hit product? Examining both successful and unsuccessful examples, this talk presents a framework for teams to set themselves up for repeated innovation success

Lectures:

Visual Design Research: Capturing Experiences & Telling Stories

How can we connect organisations with the lives and experiences of their customers, to enable designers to step into the shoes of others?

At the core of design research lies empathic conversations with others to explore the often messy, sometimes mundane, and always fascinating realities of people's everyday lives. Film and photography are engaging mediums to creatively capture these nuances and share them with others, encouraging design rooted in real, lived experiences.

This talk will use a recent STBY project as a case study to look at how we can make the most of the qualities and capabilities of 'the visual' in our work through fieldwork research, to analysis, to presentation and deliverable. Of interest to both seasoned and amateur researcher and/or designer, we'll see how film and photography can be rich research material, an ongoing repository for reference and design inspiration.
