I was the session manager for “Responsive”. Design For Web + Mobile apps”
on November 8, 2012 (Thursday) Nasscom Product Conclave held in Bangalore. My task was to bring in experts from Responsive Design area and share their experiences with the audience.
The panel consisted of
- Moderator: Philip Thomas, Director of Design and User Experience, Flipkart ( Twitter )
- Ravi Pratap, Co-Founder and CTO, MobStac
- Umesh Gopinath, Senior Information Architect, Sapient Global Markets ( Twitter )
- Shiva Kumar, Executive Director Apparatus Media Lab ( Twitter )
Idea Behind The Session
Today our apps (web and mobile) are accessed from devices of various sizes. The accessibility also varies from device to device (touch and non-touch devices). With the mobile internet penetration increasing in India it has become important to design apps which are usable on all devices (desktop, mobile, tablet).
The panelists who have deep knowledge about design aspects throw some light on Responsive Design.
