The 2016 MMWCon Mega Post

Hey friends,

Once again, it’s time for another one of my conference “mega posts,” this time from the 2016 UCLA Mobile & Modern Web Conference. This mega post links to the notes I took from almost every session I attended, and proves that I was here and learned something. Some of this will be more useful than others…I drifted at times. There was some great work on display at this conference; I always meet awesome people and take away at least a couple gems that I didn’t know going in. As always, any mistakes, omissions or just plain crappy coverage are totally mine. Who knows, I may have even gotten something right 😉 Enjoy!

A Watch Hands-On Session: Distraction-free Notifications with Apple Watch and Android Wear

Presenter: Wren Reynolds, @wrenjs

This post is short, but it was a great session…the interactive pieces unfortunately prevented an in-depth writeup. Nice session, Wren!

Interactive Exercises

We did a couple exercise demonstrating how difficult it is to create and interpret ultra-short messaging. Implicit was the challenge of over-notification.

Principles of Good Notifications

Minimal, concise, only when you really need them!
