DESCRIPTION

My presentation introduces the notion of 'context' and why it is especially important when designing (products/services) for mobile. I introduce a hypothetical local example, the Gautrain Bus, to illustrate this and close with some practical and strategic considerations to help people effectively design products that have a mobile nature to them.
