In our quest to build great products we can often find ourselves trying to prove the value of our disciplines(IA, UX, IX, etc.) in the hopes of getting buy in from stakeholders who often have a hard time understanding the value of these practices.
This can be a tough hurdle to overcome, and the challenge lies in front of us to understand how to communicate the value of IA and other disciplines in a way that helps these stakeholders understand it's value.
In this talk, Aaron will draw upon personal experiences from working in both corporate and independent environments to share tips and techniques around how we can help communicate IA better in our organizations and with clients.
hort description: I've always been excited by mobile experiences, that make customers feel that they are wearing the Iron Man suit of armor.
Apps that dissolve in behavior and empower users through superior experiences that people can't wait to tell their friends about.
In this talk I will help you understand what makes mobile experience magical, and how to create a magical experience for your own customers using my Cross-Platform UX Design framework. We will discuss unique device ergonomics, new device senors and essential mobile UX design patterns to discover what makes experiences magical. From camera-driven search, voice recognition, Artificial Intelligence and Mechanical Turk to emerging facial recognition technology and Near-field communication -- we will cover the latest digital magic trends on iPhone and Android.
We will see what works, and what doesn't. We will look at how to put all of the key elements of the framework together to create delightful experiences for touch devices, and show you how to create magical delight in your own mobile and tablet apps. If you want to learn what makes mobile magical, you can't afford to miss this talk.
Chris and Lynn will talk about why peer mentoring is important, how and why it works, how to do it, and give you the tools and methods that when properly used can pave the road to power and glory, or at the very least a good job that suits you.

Today’s presenters will join the crowd in a fast-paced peer mentoring session, where you can apply the mentoring tools and methods you’ve just learned. Bring business cards and a sticky UX problem.
