Thanks to our hosts at VMware, we will spend the evening diving into the depths of UX Process by reviewing a few different company/product models. Specifically, what's working, what's not, what's new, and what's disruptive to the process. We'll also learn new techniques to conquer that great divide between designers and developers.
