About This Class

The half-day course is for designers, developers, product teams of all experience levels with the intent of aligning focus and emphasis on some of the less considered user experience aspects of your product. The two day course option offers a deeper, more hands-on approach to the same principles outlined in the half-day course.

The critical steps that need to happen before coding starts are all-too-often brushed over or skipped entirely. Developers, testers, product owners, and anyone at any level who is looking to refine or plan the critical UX portion of either a new product or revamping an existing product will benefit from this tutorial. read more

Because a first time user experience (UX) can make or break every new app or new version, you have to put your best foot forward. Jaimee explores brand/product voice and personality questions that help teams quickly map out the direction that affects everything—product experience, visual design, and timing of animations and transitions. Learn how to think about copy from writing it to its position on a screen—from alerts to error messages and beyond. Jaimee demonstrates ways to identify your target users, empathize with their wants and needs, create user personas, and map out the most important UX scenarios. She addresses feature prioritization and discusses the secrets of great team communication. Walk away prepared to kick off a new product or evaluate your current project’s trajectory to ensure development is on the right track. read less
