P4 BYOL: Interacting with the Real World—Using Beacons
8:30 AM - 4:30 PM Monday, June 6
Mobile content has different requirements from content designed for the desktop. But mobile also offers a host of opportunities. You can interact with content by moving the device around to change views, there are sensors you can use, and you can interact with your physical location and surroundings. Using beacons is one way users can use virtual worlds to interact with the real world around them.
In this session, you will learn:
- How beacons work
- How to create an application that interacts with beacons
- How to use beacons to drive user activities
- How to create a mobile application with HTML5
Novice and intermediate designers and developers.
discussed in this session:
Laptop computer (Linux, OSX, or Windows), mobile device (Android or iOS), and text editor (Emacs, Sublime Text, Atom, TextWrangler, etc.).
