Tuesday, April 19 Is Our Featured Talks Day
New practices and techniques meet theory and expertise at the UX Immersion: Interactions conference in San Diego, CA April 18–20, 2016. Move beyond inspiration and immerse yourself.
On Tuesday, April 19 have your mind expanded, as you explore the edges of what interaction design is all about with six industry leaders plus a keynote from Jared Spool.
Chris will explore the importance of engaging with users at the behavioral level. He’ll explain prototyping’s role in closing the feedback loop on your designs. Leave with an understanding of how to best observe and elicit behaviors.
Dan will share his easy, practical tricks for getting unstuck, as well as simple daily practices that you can use to keep your mind energized and your creative tank full. You’ll be so inspired, you’ll want to use them all right away.
Marc will show you how to facilitate interactions between people and groups that lead to meaningful change. You’ll leave this talk feeling empowered to go back home and start your own conversational revolution.
Hagan will show you where to start, how to approach the problem, and what success looks like. You’ll get a feel for the philosophy that guides her work, the decisions she makes during the process, and the types of user research she regularly employs. You’ll go home with a whole new outlook on enterprise navigation.
Amy Jo Kim
Amy Jo will show you how a game designer approaches their product development and how they get to a design that their users love. From her research in how game designers think, you learn the value of refining and testing a simple, stripped down MVP (minimum viable product), long before you start adding all the fancy stuff.
Richard will show you how to stop making assumptions about your users, and figure out what they really want and need. He’ll demonstrate the value in doing fewer things better, and using features to give your users superpowers. You’ll leave his talk dying to put your new knowledge of biological design principles to work.
Every part of the organization must be infused with an understanding of great design. Jared will show you which path organizations take to become design-infused and how a centralized UX team is a stepping stone to a more UX capable organization. You never thought design strategy could be so entertainingly motivating.
