Having an idea and having a team is just the start of the process; this session will investigate the vital role that empathy plays in creating user-centered, engaging interfaces, products, and communities. We will explore a variety of exercises and activities targeted at understanding yourself, understanding your team, and gaining a real understanding of your audience and product. Stop making things, and start making useful, valuable solutions that people love. Help your team connect and collaborate beyond a superficial level, turning your process into an efficient, shipping pipeline.
