You want to quickly design or prototype mobile, web or desktop apps, right? That is why you are here. It’s great to have you because this course will teach you exactly that.

Maybe you are an experienced designer who wants to try something new or create prototypes out of the designs with no coding necessary, or maybe you are new to designing apps and want to learn an easy enough tool that still delivers a lot of features and lets you have a prototype to show the world at the end. Maybe, even, you are a developer, who wants to design an app before developing it. This course presents to you with Adobe Experience Design, and teaches you how to use it from scratch to design and prototype mobile applications.

What makes me qualified to teach you?

My name is Eduardo Rosas, I am a professional mobile developer, and have worked on many mobile apps in the past 5 years, including apps for the Mexican government and brands like Powerade, and during this 5 years I’ve worked close with designers on making these apps better. My experience working along designers taught me the way the apps should look (along with my passion for mobile design, I even have an Instagram account dedicated for that: BeautifulSoftware), and my experience as a developer taught me the way these designs should be delivered to a programmer.

Besides, we promise:

I now represent a startup called AlphaBeta, our main value proposition lays on the fact that we want you to achieve every goal set for the course, so if you feel like there is something missing, let me know and I will gladly try my best to make everything work for you. I will also be here to answer your questions and guide you when you need help. Udemy also grants a 30 day money back guarantee, so if you weren’t 100% satisfied with your purchase, you can have your money back, no questions asked!

As a bonus, and as part of AlphaBeta’s value proposition, you will get a 1-hour coaching session with one of our digital companions (myself or one of my colleagues) to solve any doubt you have regarding design, or even app development or digital marketing. (Please note that this session must take place 30 days after enrolling the course, and must be programmed in advance).

So what will you learn?

Become fluent on the use of Adobe’s latest tool, Experience Design, and design mobile, desktop, web and even smartwatch applications that can be created into prototypes to be shared with stakeholders, developers and the world.

Practice and get inspired

This course is designed to create a community of learners, I encourage you to share screenshots with us to inspire us or to receive feedback on your designs, I myself will be sharing the designs I find beautiful (and that also go into my Instagram Account) to inspire you. You will feel like an experienced mobile designer in no time.

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll be learning:

  • Mastering the use of Adobe Experience Design with keyboard shortcuts

  • Storyboarding your app and designing it

  • Shapes and properties

  • Working more efficiently

  • Prototyping and Sharing

  • Exporting assets


  • Work even more efficiently by sharing styles and color assets

Take your mobile app creation process to the next step by learning how to easily design and prototype your ideas.

With Udemy’s 30-day 100% money back guarantee and AlphaBeta’s value propositions, there is nothing holding you back from jumping in right now and trying the course ou

Xamarin-Certified Mobile Developer, Software Engineer

I am a Software Engineer and Xamarin-Certified Mobile Developer (just got my certification renewed on September 11th 2017, yay!)

I have been developing mobile apps for 6 years now, I started when iOS 5 had just been released!

During this years I have created apps for clients, both for private use, and for public use. I have created some apps that I wanted to release to the app stores, and have created a lot of apps just for fun. The main platform I use is Xamarin, so I can code Android, Windows, iOS and macOS apps using my favorite language: C#.

I have helped literally thousands of students to learn how to code, both online and in-person, and it has become my passion.

I also love to design apps, whenever I get a little bit (or a lot) stressed when coding, I design apps, either out-of-the-blue concepts, or the next app that I have to code, or a design for a client.

I like to think of myself as an entrepreneur, I am the cofounder of a startup, AlphaBeta, focused on helping Mexicans to adapt digital technologies in their lives, so they become more efficient, and live better lives.

In AlphaBeta I have learnt (and taught) how to use tools like Google Classroom, Power BI (super popular with SMEs) and Adobe Experience Design, and some of those courses, have been brought here as well.

My students usually say that I know how to make difficult subjects easy to understand, and that I help them learn in the best way possible: by doing.
