Designing for the mobile platform is highly related to usability given there are multiple screen sizes, operating systems, device interfaces, and user expectations to consider during the process.
This session will be a discussion on design trends, do’s and don’ts, and best practices through visual slides and Q&A’s. I will share a few insights I gained from designing and from seminars I attended on mobile design focusing on usability.

VENUE AND PARKING DETAILS AT AOL / ADVERTISING.COM:
Advertising.com has offered their space to us for this meetup, it’s located in Tide Point in the Ivory Building. Enter the building under the large sign that says “Ivory” and walk by the big blue crab then take an immediate left. You can take the water taxi over from Fells Point (landing #8) to landing #10 or you can drive over and park in any spot marked “Visitor” or in the “F” lot.
See below map for detail. The green is where the designated visitor spaces are. Those are marked “visitor” on the pavement. Watch out for ‘reserved’ or handicap. The purple shaded in area is one of the employee lots which is available for us to park in (I think, since it’s after hours). The Blue marker next to the building is the entrance to the Advertising.com meetup space.
