You don't need a UX Designer!

A session at UX Cambridge 2015

Wednesday 9th September, 2015

11:00am to 12:30pm (GMT)

Building good software takes more than just having a user experience (UX) designer or two. It takes a whole development team and guess what? Your team might not need a UX Designer for everything UX-related.

Seems like an odd thing for a UX Designer to be telling you, doesn’t it?

UX Designers come in many flavours, with varying competencies, each subtly different from the last. But the one thing that unites each one is knowing that putting the user first in product development always leads to better products.

Should User Experience always be a function? What if it was a process that every discipline in your team could follow?

During this session, Jonathan and Revathi will describe their experience of making the process of design and research more accessible, and how they give development teams at Redgate the confidence to take on some of the more fundamental UX tasks for themselves. We will share our experience of what to do and which things to avoid when working as a team to improve the user experience of your product.

This report will be useful for:
-UX designers who work with product development teams
-Development teams missing UX designers
