An Introduction to Apps will be the first tutorial presented by the RENCI App Lab. In it, Jeff Heard will discuss what makes a good mobile app, what to consider when designing a mobile app, and how mobile devices and mobile users behave in the field. He will also discuss the strengths of native SDK programming and the strengths of programming in HTML5/Javascript. A Q & A will follow the tutorial. A signup/request sheet will be distributed so that participants can request additional tutorials, panel discussions and presentation topics.

About the App Lab: The RENCI App Lab is a cadre of developers as well as a floating stack of shared hardware covering the Android, iOS, and Blackberry platforms in tablet and small-screen formats.  Members discuss ideas for apps, enlist each others’ help in developing apps, and offer each other constructive criticism on prototypes. The Lab is also a learning forum, and members offer occasional tutorials on the general app writing process and on developing apps for specific purposes.
