Finessing Your UX Foundation Skills for Real Life

Saturday, April 2, 2016
9:00 am - 4:00 pm
South Hall, UC Berkeley
Uday Gajendar, UX Consultant

This one-day workshop led by accomplished UX leader Uday Gajendar will offer a high-intensity yet fun overview of major UX methods for software design projects. We’ll look at proto-personas, stakeholder empathy, storyboards and journeys, as well as identify critical “touchpoints” for brainstorming. In addition, we’ll explore issues around designing for cross-device situations including coherence vs. consistency and patterns vs. principles. Discussions will be punctuated with real-life dilemmas from Uday’s fifteen-year career, to reinforce the complexity of UX practice, and pointers for how to apply UX judgment back at the office on Monday.

Lunch and snacks provided.
