Workshop: App design: what to do before you talk to a developer

Presenter: Dr Skye Doherty (The University of Queensland)


Mobile applications are increasingly becoming an essential way to deliver services and engage with others. This workshop will introduce some practical skills for scoping and communicating what your app needs to do and why. The aim is to prepare you to approach a developer. We’ll touch on methods for understanding users, developing concepts, articulating requirements and highlight some questions to ask. This is a hands-on workshop that will suit those who have an idea for an app but don’t know where to begin.
