Details

Do you want to learn how to design user interfaces that will help your users accomplish what they need faster and in a natural way without the application getting into way? Our intensive UX training is the right choice for you. The two-day course in UX and user-centered design will give you solid fundamentals of an application design that your customer will appreaciate. The course is designed to give the participants a quick half-day introduction into UX followed by an intensive workshop, where participants work on designing a suitable UX of a real-world application from scratch all the way up to a UX/UI design that can be handed over to engineering for implementation.

Why You Should Choose This Course

UX plays an extremely imporant role in the success of any product. What defines a great product is not just its feature set. To an increasingly greater extent it is the overall user experience that defines a successful product from rest. It is therefore crucial to think of users who will be using the product since the beginning and design the user experience accordingly. Although UX is usualy a standalone role on a project, it pays off to have solid understanding of a user-centered design also as an engineer. The end result will certainly be more user friendly, users will appreciate it and the product will be more successful.

Outline

Day 1 Fundamentals

  • What is UX: purpose and main concepts
  • Understand the challenge: what is the problem we are trying to solve
  • User research: user interviews, journey maps, task analysis, observations
  • Research validation: align our understanding with stakeholders and users
  • Personas: who and how uses the application
  • The stage: screnarios and storyboards
  • Validating the design: prototypes and wireframes
  • Implementation planning

UX workshop: We will start designing an application on which we will practice all of the UX concepts.

Build an interface: What-Who-Which-How:
