Please join us for another lightning talk round of presentations!
We received countless positive feedback about the previous format, so we decided to do a follow up with a focus on UI, UX, and design. This will be an exciting event with multiple back-to-back lightning talks based on real world UI/UX/Design experience.
Each individual gets 10-15 minutes, followed by a group question & answer period when all presentations are completed.
Hope to see you there!
UX. It’s more than you think.
The term UX is thrown around a lot today but most people don’t really know what it means. I’m going to discuss a holistic user experience process and how that relates to UCD (User Centered Design) along with the differences between interaction design and interface design.
How we integrated UX practices into our Agile development process at Reading Plus.
Mike will discuss Responsive design with CSS pre-processors, Sass and Compass
Have you ever wondered why UI design is so hard? The top challenge is to think about design the right way.
In this talk, Everett McKay (a programmer!) explains the UI design approach often used by programmers, exactly why such designs fail with users, and presents a technique that programmers can use to design in a truly user-centered way.
Michael will present on the role of emotional design in UX development and the centrality of design early in the development process.
