Our regular monthly meeting on the first wednesday of every month, hosted graciously by Pakhuis de Zwijger.
Peter Boersma will tell us all about the valuable lessons he learned from over 200 projects.
After the talk there will be plenty of room for socialising, exchanging experiences, and enjoying some drinks and snacks at Eetcafé de Zwijger.
19:15 Start (sharp!)
19:20 "What I learned from 200 projects"
Talk: What I learned from 200 projects
Focussing on teamwork, deliverables and processes, I will walk the audience through a selection of projects from my 20 years of experience with designing interactive systems, sharing the lessons that I learned the hard way, and showing how some things in design agencies have changed while others have stayed exactly the same. I hope that some of the lessons resonate with the audience, and that the models I plan to include (like the T-model, or overviews of where UX can live in organizations) helps them reflect on their practice and consider improvements to the way they design.
