Android Makers 2017

Last month I was in Paris for the 1st edition of Android Makers, a brand new conference about mobile apps. Organized by the same guys who made the Droidcon Paris, it was two amazing days of talks about Android, with speakers from all around the world.

I was lucky enough to do a talk about mobile app design, and all the though situations you can meet when you’re creating an app for someone else. Here’s the video (in French):

 

 

You can also read the slides on Slideshare (even if it might not be really complete without the stories told in the talk):

 

And to show you how cool was Android Makers, here’s my top 3 from the conference:

 

 

The Fabulous Journey to Material Design Award by Taylor Ling

In this talk, Taylor Ling explained us the key principles he used to design Fabulous, an extraordinary app that won a Material Design award last year. Probably one of the best talk I’ve seen in years.

 

 

The ART of organizing resources by Jeroen Mols

Here Jeroen Mols explains us the conventions he uses to name his resources. We were nicely surprised to see that we were basically doing the same things at iD.apps. So we’re probably doing it the right way :).

 

 

Android Things for IoT by Wayne Piekarski

Wayne Piekarski from Google was here to show us some of the cool stuff you can do with Android Things. Honestly, watch the talk. Now I want to IOT all the things!

 

In the end it was a great event. I can’t wait to come back next year!

Google I/O: I was here

Even if I haven’t posted about it (except if you follow me on Twitter), I was at Google I/O this year, thanks to my company. And it was awesome, as you can expect. I’ve met a lot of people, see some great conferences, and I’ve came back with tons of new ideas.

I’m especially pleased with their work on Firebase (except for this annoying push notification bug). And I really want to try Google Home (who wouldn’t?).

Here is the top 5 of the conferences I’ve seen. Enjoy!

You also have to see this one. It’s not your usual I/O conference. You’ll thank me 🙂

From Nice To Astonishing

I was in Paris two weeks ago for the 2015 edition of the Droidcon Paris. As usual, I’ve met great people and assisted to some very nice conferences.

I also had the opportunity to present a new talk, focused on app design. Mainly inspired by the great book About Face by Alan Cooper, it’s full of advices about how to make your app even better.

Slides are available on Slideshare, so enjoy, and make your apps astonishing!

Holo to material design – Devoxx France 2015

I was this week at Devoxx France. Apart of the amazing conferences, I was myself doing an updated talk about Material Design. Since the Droidcon Paris (where I first did this presentation), a lot of libraries have been created to achieve various parts of the design specifications, and many apps have adopted this new approach.

I’ll update this article when the video will be available on Parleys. You can however get the slides on Slideshare:
