The seminar of ‘We Know Mobile, and You?’ held by Green Tomato and CityU Apps Lab on 14 January 2016 has curated and delivered ideas that give inspirations to people who have interest in the field of information technology. Those who aspired to pursue a career particularly in the mobile application sector had obtained essential ideas and advices on how to prepare themselves to embark on the journey to work in three different positions: user experience (UX), user interface (UI) and product development.
An excellent project requires coordination of various resources. The designer team from Green Tomato who has accumulated a wealth of experience emphasized on strong project management skills by implementing a detailed plan and be well prepared for any changes within the process. They encouraged the green hand not only to communicate with the customers to understand their needs and wants, but also to make numerous attempts to fulfil their requirements.
Besides, the team also shared their real world experience and challenges to draw the participants’ attention to the need of thinking from customer’s perspectives. They once undertook a project regarding an app specially designed for doctors when performing operation. Since none of them has professional medical knowledge, it became a necessity for them to enter the operating room to gain first-hand experience in order to plan and execute a project that fits the target users’ conditions.
“No product will ever quite be right for everyone. It is an ongoing process of continuous development to make it better,” quoted the project manager Carla Cheung. Indeed, continuous improvement is crucial for everyone who is working in this rapidly-growing sector. Hopefully, more ambitious talents will be inspired to create more excellent mobile apps!

Mobile app is one of the fastest growing sectors in recent years. As the demand for I.T. talents has been rising steadily, mobile app development companies, start-ups and even traditional companies are so plagued by the shortage of I.T. talents. GT Group and CityU Apps Lab proudly presented the seminar of ‘We Know Mobile, and You?’ It covered first-hand sharing of developing mobile applications on user experience (UX), user interface (UI) and product development.
CityU App Lab and Green Tomato had organized a career talk to help on it. The sharing on one hand acted to facilitate audience to have a overview of mobile app development and dedicated job duties, as well as to prepare students and job seekers for being employed.
