CocoaLove is an annual conference that focuses on the people, rather than the tech. My goal with this talk was to show that one of the greatest success stories in tech history, Apple's rise to dominance in the 2000s, was largely due to a number of key people on Apple's team working in concert. It was more than just well designed products, in other words, that made Apple great.
In Amsterdam, March 2019, I presented my thoughts on best serving customers by honoring their needs and preferences. Topics covered included Dynamic Type, Color preferences, and Screen size accomodations.
At a monthly CocoaHeads meeting in Philadelphia, I told the story of how I came to work on a watchOS update for Slopes, the skiing and snowboarding tracker. I also discuss the differences between User Experience and User Interface Design.
In 2017 I gave a business talk focused on the science of moving others at 360iDev in Denver, CO.
I have spoken at 360iDev on many occasions, usually on business-related topics. In 2014, I decided to change gears and instead give a technical demo of my process for creating App Preview Videos.
Mobile Conference Europe gave me an opportunity to speak about my favorite design topic: focusing on the people who use our products, rather than the judgment of our peers in the design community.
