Session Title Multichannel User Interfaces

Session Type Case Study

Duration 60 minutes

Session Description

Every year companies have to choose among several platforms and User interfaces technologies to create their products. The constant arisen of new technologies such as mobile devices and the withdrawal of old ones provide too much investment in technologies that does not pay off in terms of ROI.

Model Driven Software Development (MDSD) provides paths for focusing on the key factors of the user interaction, describing it in a model and generating code to different platforms or channels to deliver services.

In this session, key points, constrains, problems and opportunities in UI modelling will be addressed to stress the value of modelling, also in the multiple devices user interface development domain.
