National Ladies Learning Code Day: Intro to User Experience (UX) Design

This workshop is hosted by Ladies Learning Code.


Why learn about UX design?

With great design comes great responsibility. User experience (UX) design isn’t just about creating pretty or functioning websites - it’s about creative solutioning and trying to make people’s lives and experiences better.

As designers, it’s important to remember that we aren’t designing products for ourselves, but for other people. Being a UX designer allows you to work with and problem solve for a variety of different people, and empathy plays a huge part in this.

During this collaborative learning experience, the difference between UI and UX will be explored, and how they work together. You will walk through the design cycle; including discovery, user testing, and user personas. Learners will also have a chance to experience different UX methods through hands-on exercises, including building physical and digital prototypes.

Prerequisites:

None! This workshop is designed for beginners.
