As mobile devices proliferate and we move toward a pervasive computing environment, our ability to build applications quickly for these devices becomes increasingly important. In this workshop, we will use ScriptKit, a framework for constructing application prototypes rapidly for Apple's iOS. We will place an emphasis on applications for personal data collection and generation, as well as techniques for visualizing this data. More generally, we will discuss the types of data appropriate for collection by mobile applications as well as the user interface and user experience (UI/UX) considerations relevant to these types of applications.
As ScriptKit is alpha software, experience with XCode and Objective-C will be beneficial. Attendees who own iPads are encouraged to bring them.
Pre-registration is required. Please reserve a spot by emailing Lori Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org. Only 15 seats are available.
Kyle Buza (http://buza.mitplw.com) worked at Sun Microsystems developing experimental Java technologies and embedded Java Virtual Machines before getting an M.S from the MIT Media Lab in 2008. At Sun, he was a member of a small team focused on the design and investigation of novel Java technologies, including 3D browsing interfaces, mobile phone networking software, and UI design tools. At MIT, he built systems to explore and interact with web data ranging from gesture-based interfaces to browser-based collaboration tools. He currently works as an iOS designer and developer at BuzaMoto in San Francisco, CA.
