“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.” ~Alvin Toffler.
Team at Rapidops grows in their experience and learning with learn, unlearn and relearn approach. And we love sharing such refined learning and rich experiences with like minded people at large. Our expert’s open session at GDG DevFest at DAIICT University was one such initiative.
GDG DevFest, is a large, community-run event that offers speaker sessions across multiple topics namely product development, progressive technologies, latest trends and developments in designs, innovations, start-up stories etc.
Our team was invited to share ideas and know-how on design innovation and start-up ecosystem. The one day event was quite engaging where domain experts from different organizations spoke on variety of topics. Let’s take a sneak peak at insights shared by few speakers.
The event kick-started by Mr. Samir Motiwani, co-founder of Rapidops Inc., who shared his ideas on Material UI.
According to Samir “Google has attempted to bridge the gap between the physical and digital world for a more relatable UI design process.” He goes on explaining it more in detail: “Google’s Material design considers material to be a homogeneous digital “fabric” created with pixels. Users can tap, swipe, or pinch this material fabric and it will move according to user interaction. Mobile interfaces are created out of layered material objects like rectangular bars or circular buttons. Content (text, imagery, video) is laid flat onto material.”
While he explained the terms and philosophy, he also shared few tools and tactics of implementing material design on various platforms.
He was one of the attendees when we had conducted a meet up on Introduction on Angular Js; he got the inspiration to learn and work on the technology and now he has come a long way where he delivers quite insightful sessions on Angular JS technology.
Amongst these technology focused sessions, few speakers were invited to share insights on how to build successful products with such top notch technologies. Dhaval Pandit, sales and marketing head at Rapidops Inc. exchanged his views and experiences about few important factors apart from technology that are pivotal in making of digital product and an organization at large.
According to Dhaval “Though the technology plays a vital role on the success of the product and organization at large, there are many other factors which need consideration; starting from need identification of mass to creating an MVP, taking feedback from early adopters and iterating the prototype to make it a desired, useful and sticky product, integrating lean analytics approach to measure the growth and engagement from users with various tools like hitmap, google analytics and finally launching a scalable complete product in the market with right marketing tactics, do make or break your venture.”
Mr. Ishit, start-up and business strategist shared his start-up story and learning experiences as to how he made it to a successful venture from a failed trial. And at last the event ended with an engaging session taken by Mr. Dushyant Jadeja from GDG Bangalore on Material UI.
Overall the event was quite insightful and engrossing where experts came together to share their learning and the audience made it more interesting with thoughtful question-answer sessions. Well, keep watching this space for such more announcements and updates.
