UX Axiom

A session at Stir Trek: Darkness Edition

Friday 17th May, 2013

10:30am to 11:30am (EST)

User Experience (UX) theory and practice can be confusing for the uninitiated. This talk outlines a set of UX Axioms designers and developers alike can use to integrate UX into their practice. Erik isn’t espousing a specific dogma like LeanUX or AgileUX, he’ll be sharing hard-won lessons learned from practicing UX in the real world for the past 10 years. Building real products involves an ongoing series of design compromises. There is no ideal process or magic bullet for integrating UX or creating amazing user experiences. However, understanding and applying UX Axioms will allow you to adapt to the situation at hand and build products that resonate with and delight your end-users.
