At our March meetup, author Cheryl Platz will be joining us for a Q & A session! Join us as we discuss her book “Design Beyond Devices: Creating Multimodal, Cross-Device Experiences”

~8 hour read | 369 pages | Published December 2020

About the book

Multimodal experiences are experiences that can engage multiple human senses. Twenty years ago, your PC (generally) only engaged you visually, and you only engaged your PC with touch. You have many more options today (see Chapter 7, “The Spectrum of Multimodality,” to fully understand all those options), but those options bring a lot more complexity to the design party. Learn the techniques you’ll need to build fluid, adaptive experiences for multiple inputs, multiple outputs, and multiple devices.
