Redmond Xcoders this Thursday

Redmond Xcoders is this Thursday at 7pm. Maura Goodwin will give a talk: “This is your brain on UITextField.”

We’ll look at UI from a perspective informed by reading research and basic neurology. To better understand how these topics are relevant to app design, we’ll focus on two common UI elements: UITextFields and UISliders.

To provide specific examples for each UI element, we’ll consider Type 2 Diabetes. Millions of people have this condition, and some of these patients are functionally illiterate. This raises interesting questions for UI design.

The goal of this presentation is to help coders think about how UITextFields and UISliders can be incorporated into projects, and what unique benefits each of these UI elements can provide.

This sounds utterly fascinating — and a context not often considered.
