You’ll be surprised just how simple and quick it can be to craft your next prototype with this true mobile development framework. Join App developer and Harrington professor Andy Hullinger in the school’s iMac lab for a hands-on micro-class in using the CoronaSDK and programming with the high-performance Lua language. You do not need prior app development experience to learn how to use this elegant, efficient, and freely available software development kit as we walk step-by-step through the creation and coding of an animated, touch driven, multi-page iPhone App.

  • Discover tips and tricks for designing a functional mobile prototype presentation
  • Learn the simple syntax behind programming animation to enhance UI design
  • Understand the creation and optimization of images for mobile display
  • Experience the engineering cycle of native App development

Why learn CoronaSDK? In addition to being the #1 cross-platform mobile development framework you’ll find it easy to continue pursuing your curiosity. The Chicago CoronaSDK Developers Group Meetup is now hosted at Harrington and Andy currently serves as a Corona Ambassador advocating for the value of good design (both visual and functional) in App development and promoting the addition of Art education to Science, Tech, Engineering, and Math curriculum to put STEAM into S.T.E.M.

UX Camp 2013: Mobile Camp

How Gesture-Based Design Can Enhance the Narrative Experience of Reading on the iPad

Four years ago the iPad was a rumor! Today our increasingly powerful and sublimely tactical mobile devices have become the primary tools of our networked culture. Is truly “digital” design finally close at hand? How can we design stories that are as delightful to the fingers as they are to the eye?

In this session, Andy shares the secrets, struggles, and successes of exploring this emerging vocabulary of multi-touch gestures by taking you behind the scenes of the award winning children’s book App Dragon Brush and scrutinizing the work of his students in the Magazine Innovation Project at Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism.
