It’s all about the user. You build great software and/or design amazing user experiences, but without both development and design/UX working together, and working well, that user eventually becomes disappointed with your product and moves on. You don’t want that.
So join us on July 14th for a multidisciplinary panel discussion with designers, developers and project management roles to explore what you can learn from “the other” discipline to improve your own work.
More information – what’s all this, then?
When working with developers, how can you be a better UX designer? What can you do to work with development teams better, to make their jobs easier (or at least, less of a living hell)? As a developer, how can you better enable UX designers to dream big? What tools can you build that will enable them – not limit them?
Building strong cross-disciplinary teams is vital for every successful digital product today. However, when designers, researchers, and developers get the chance to talk to each other, they often don’t seem to understand each other’s challenges and unique capabilities, which can cause communication breakdown and significant trouble for you, and by extension, your users.
This event will be hosted by projekt202 and held at their roof top lounge, with free drinks and pizza. Organization is through a joint venture between OpenHackATX and Austin UXPA.
