The Ladies that UX came together in May 2017 at Arcane, a local digital agency to explore topics under the large umbrella that is User Experience with ‘Lightning Talks’.
What’s a Lightning Talk?
It’s lightning fast! Speakers have just enough time to get the group excited about their topic so that anyone can do their own research afterwards, or reach out to the speaker themselves!
10 minutes + Q&A
What is User Experience?
Simply put, user experience is how you feel about every interaction you have with a product while you’re using it. This can include the users experience using applications, websites, and every day tools.
Back to back Knowledge
Existing members of the group as well as new faces got up in front and talked about other areas where UX applies to their own careers. Lightning Talks are aimed to be inclusive and allow women as well as men to learn from one another in the field!
Lightning Talk Topics Included:
- Improvisation in the workplace
- The difference between being a UX organization and being an organization with a few designers and researchers
- Search Engine Optimization and User Experience beyond the home page
- UX/UI process challenges and how to overcome them
- The psychology behind social media
- User experience beyond digital: Sales tools
