FINN.no: A closer look at our brand new filtering experience 

FINN.no is one of those digital services that has always been there in modern Norwegian culture. It is the leading digital marketplace where you can find everything from second-hand iPhones to your dream apartment. Through the iOS and Android app alone, we get about half a million unique visitors every day looking for new opportunities.

Functionally and visually, the app has been heavily inspired by the desktop experience, but as we've seen traffic moving more and more over to apps and mobile devices, an opportunity to refresh and rethink the overall app experience has presented itself. Our first step towards the future has been to iterate on the filtering experience.

Thuy gives you an in-depth design geek-out on the work behind the brand new filtering experience for the app, principles that guided the way, surprising discoveries, their designer-developer relationship and how he believes that they've created the most complex, but still user-friendly, modal bottom sheet in the world.

19:30—20:15
Vipps

Ninni, Product Manager, and Max, Head of Design, will share their story of how a multidisciplinary team went through highs and lows to create Vipps for kids after failing multiple times before. 

They will start from the very beginning and take you through the story of how they tackled organisational, legal, design and technical hurdles, ultimately creating a great onboarding experience for kids and parents.
