National Ladies Learning Code Day – Intro to UX Design
September 21 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Join thousands of Canadians coast to coast to coast taking their first steps learning about application development.
With great design comes great responsibility. User experience (UX) design isn’t just about creating pretty or functioning websites – it’s about creative solutioning and trying to make people’s lives and experiences better.
As application designers, we need to remember that we aren’t designing products for ourselves, but for other people. Being a UX designer allows you to work with and problem solve for a variety of different people, and empathy plays a huge part in this.
During this collaborative learning experience, we’ll explore the difference between User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX), and how they work together. We’ll walk through the design cycle; including discovery, user testing, and user personas. Learners will also have a chance to experience different UX methods through hands-on exercises, including building physical and digital prototypes.
