Level: Introductory

Developer. Designer. Speaker. Author.

If you've ever wanted to experience what it's like to do hands-on design of an app, this is your chance. In this workshop, you'll spend the first couple of hours learning the steps in a UX design process. Then you'll be challenged to design a replacement for an existing app. You and your team will ask questions, prioritize design tasks, and then sketch and evaluate ideas. After seeing what other teams have produced, you'll then get to do another round of ideation and sketching. We'll finish up by have the class as a whole do evaluation on designs, with prizes for the team producing the winner.

You will learn:

  • A lightweight UX design process optimized for developers
  • Get hands-on experience at design techniques
  • How to help your own team embrace UX design as a discipline
