Frontend Makers - Making usability, design & frontend work together

Malaga Makers is creating a new series of events targeted mainly to all the people working in the different parts of the apps and webapps frontend, Frontend Makers.

The talks will be targeted mainly to designers, experts in user experience and frontend developers interested on learning new skills, though everyone will be welcomed.

As always we will be having free beers and wine for the networking!

Where?

Edificio Luxfor, Bloque 1
C. Bodegueros, 21 29006 Málaga

About Rafa Latorre

Rafa Latorre is UX chief and lead frontend developer at Tolq.com with more than 9 years of experience tackling user interface challenges.

Session

Three main roles are involved in the creation of the frontend of a good application: the usability expert, the visual designer and the frontend developer.

Those different roles can be taken care by one or more people but way too often the needs and requirements of each one of them clash with horrible consequences leading to arguments, poor specs, frustrations and slow development.

In this talk we will go through a story based on true events involving said roles that ended in a huge waste of time and a really disappointing design. After that we will go through the insights gained from the experience and the steps to make those roles play well along.

A quick overview of the several options we have right now when choosing the architecture of our data storage system.

We will review a few different DB engines and we will see examples on how we can use them from our Microsoft .Net applications (or any others, really).

Besides the love for real time, he also write/teach courses and talk at conferences/code camps. He have had the opportunity to speak at conferences and code camps in the U.S. and Europe in recent ye

    Session

    “Internet Of Things” has been hot for a while now, and these days we are expected to be able to view data from sensors in our smart devices in real time. Data that in the past was viewed (if viewed at all) historically… One of the challenges with IoT is that different sensors/clients has different abilities. There is no standard way of communication for IoT even though there is work being done in that area. In this session we will build and deploy a real time communication solution to Azure so that we can view sensor data in real­time. Hopefully there will be people in the room that will help me to produce sensor data to the cloud service. Things we need to solve in this session:

    • The sensor­tag (from Texas Instruments) being used will not have a network connection so we will need to bridge the BLE connection to something with network access
    • We need to be able to connect client using different communication protocols to each other
    • Monitoring clients have individual needs/demands, so we do not want to broadcast all sensor data to all clients, so how do we solve that?
