Presentation: User Experience Design for Developers
Developers often end up making design decisions, and a cursory knowledge of UX can go a long way towards making products that are user-friendly and intuitive. This talk will arm developers with a few simple activities they can do to validate the usability of the features they are building, as well as provide some methods for talking about UX with clients.
About the Presenter
Eva Penzeymoog is a designer at 8th Light who works to infuse UX into every step of the process, from discovery to front-end implementation. She advocates for users as living, breathing human beings who deserve experiences that are intuitive and delightful. When not designing and coding, she’s playing with her pitbulls Hamlet and Horatio, fundraising for feminist organizations and unabashedly devouring the latest YA novels.
