If you’re thinking about working with a UX agency for the first time or tackling design on your own, this session is for you. Ari Weissman will cover the key things you need to know:

  • What UX is (and what it’s not)
    -   The UX design process
    -   Measuring and validating experience
  • Points of frequent failure and how to avoid them
