Rethinking Navigation in Meetup for Android 2.0

Rethinking Navigation in Meetup for Android 2.0

We’re refreshing navigation and design patterns across all platforms we support, starting with our Android app.

Join product lead Jimena Almendares, mobile design engineer John Cockrell, and Android engineer Mike Castleman as we talk about our motivations, process, and implementation.

We’ll discuss how we’re making Meetup more consistent across technology platforms while still adhering to the conventions of each platform and—dare we say it?—creating a more beautiful and enjoyable experience in the process.

We’ll also talk specifically about some of the challenges we faced meeting these goals on Android and how we solved them.
