A good app design is more than just modifying Bootstrap and clever usage of Font Awesome — it starts with a solid understanding of your users. In this session we’ll walk through lightweight and collaborative UX techniques that you can use in your development process to better understand your users and their workflows. We'll demonstrate how user experience goes beyond UI design and discuss real world examples of how knowing your users can put your application ahead of the pack. You’ll leave this session with techniques that you can apply to your current team without the need for complicated software or a complete shift in your corporate culture.

No UX experience? No problem! We’ll introduce you to lean UX practices that you can start using with your teams right away.

Come sit around the (metaphorical) campfire while we sing Kumbaya and learn how to get in touch with your users on an emotional level.
