About Fragments Ahmedabad: State of Platforms

The Ahmedabad edition of Fragments Conference is a technical, deep-dive conference, discussing:

  1. React: where Vipul AM, director at Big Binary, elaborates on tooling, resources and how to get started with React: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/proposals/state-of-react-BDg5te9DaeahZN9kVaahRV

  2. React Native: working with the React Native team at Facebook in San Francisco, Parashuram explains how you can build high quality applications with React Native: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/proposals/building-high-quality-mobile-apps-with-react-nativ-T4xVLyEQFFGKzgvNsdRuta

  3. Flutter: Pooja Bhaumik explains the ease of development with Flutter in terms of reduced development times, ease of learning, and other technical features which make Flutter an attractive platform: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/proposals/flutter-do-more-with-less-code-jbAn8PKhyFgna44bvJ8fHf

  4. Comparisons of the above platforms with Kotlin and NativeScript: Arnav Gupta, known for his active involvement with the Android community, demonstrates the pros and cons of different platforms by showing how he built an app using Kotlin, Flutter and NativeScript: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/proposals/what-i-learnt-by-building-the-exact-same-app-in-ko-NuZgd4bLfKkcck2yHEGRmg

While platforms have brought in frameworks and ease of development, at the heart of a good mobile app underlies sound engineering. One such practice is that of end-to-end testing. Preeti Wadhwani argues about the importance of E2E testing, in her talk at the conference: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/proposals/meet-my-new-friend-testing-Y5FuAn6jCmXDdyL7o72LtM

How much UX is too much?

Submitted Feb 12, 2019

Good design is good business they say. But what if the UX is too overwhelming? Will the business rise proportionately or be the sinking Titanic? UX is neither insignificant nor over-saturated, rather it is seen as a short-term, revenue driven process, where businesses fail on fetching the organic users. Caricaturish UX serves none. It is therefore important for the businesses and designers to know what UX is good for their business, how to start and where to stop.
Key Takeaways: A sketch of a UX Design Pendulum to know the boundaries of UX Design according to the Business Model
Intended Audience: UI/UX/Interaction Designers and Enthusiasts with some knowledge on UX Design (Means all!):P

Outline

UX and its introduction - Need and Importance of UX - UX Design Flow - Setting Boundaries for UX - Case Studies when UX destructed giant businesses - CheckPoints for an optimum UX Design

Requirements

Just knowing what UX is!
Specifically, people who have designed earlier and faced problems or suceeded after a good design implementation

Speaker bio

I’m Rashi Desai, a full-time engineering student and a part-time interaction designer, UX analyst & consultant, workshop speaker, content writer, and a blogger!
