Objective

To help developers, entrepreneurs and designers feel emotionally connected to the creative process — and care for details that could help them create meaningful products and services for today and the future.

Description

The evolution of Android over the last few years has been interesting – from a mobile phone OS to a platform that spans across mobile use cases, wearables (Glass), and even space exploration - http://googlemobile.blogspot.in/2010/12/android-in-spaaaace.html
This very thought that a platform can scale beyond a simple mobile phone to a system of intelligence has brought tremendous potential to its design, technology and social impact.

Here, I'd like to focus on design; my talk would broadly cover the following topics:
1. Caring for the process — thinking beyond design delivery
2. Detailing — from evaulating metrics to emotions

Speaker bio

I'm a designer working at Khosla Labs, a startup incubator. My role as a design strategist involves shaping the company's product portfolio by creating and standardising a design process. Prior to Khosla Labs, I worked at frog (a design and innovation firm), July Systems (cross-platform mobile solutions), hp labs (design research) and several startups. I'm really passionate about Android's design evolution. If you share the same interests, feel free to reach out to me @ramprakash_r.
