May’s Expert Connects will be with Jon Lopkin and Heather Mendonca from Jibo’s Design team.
Jon and Heather will provide a background on their roles at Jibo, the joys and challenges of designing for the world’s first social robot, and discuss how to best incorporate Jibo’s unique characteristics including body animations, screen, and personality into your planning and skill design. Some topics they will cover include:
- The design considerations developers should think about when developing for Jibo
- Best practices for incorporating Jibo’s screen into your skill design, including how to leverage existing visual assets (e.g., Jibo emojis)
- Dos and don’ts when designing Jibo skills, with a focus on visual design.
This session is scheduled for Tuesday, May 9 at 12pm ET (9am PT). We will publish the YouTube live stream link here in the forum and send it via email on the day of the event.
We invite you to reply to this thread to post your questions for Jon and Heather in advance, and we will work to address them as part of the session.
Because we want to get to all of your questions on the topic, we ask that you send any general questions about Jibo or your Jibo account to firstname.lastname@example.org. This will allow the designers and our moderators to focus in on the topic at hand during the live stream.
Hope you can join us!
