I believe in the power of software as a tool for social change. But apps won’t change the world. People will.
My main experience report orbits designing and developing a mobile app in India and conducting research in Africa, working alongside Amnesty International, an inspiring organization exploring digital tools to support their constituents. I’ll be focusing on the human factors techniques we used to understand peoples’ needs, and elaborate how our agile approach is valuable when thinking about creating tools that scale. It is a global, multi-stakeholder story about crafting strategies based on human empathy and understanding.
Everyone can gain insight from the unique challenges that the non-profit, NGO, and social enterprise space faces. Attendees will learn how our methods can be applied to any sort of product development, and how anyone can apply design insights to a project lifecycle.
