Applied Data: Transforming UX from the Ground Up

With all the discussion circulating about data (and it’s power to transform industry practices and disrupt behavior in digital), there's a surprising lack of discussion on data in UX. Data is an undeniably crucial aspect of User Experience; from conducting user research well before wireframing begins, to iterative testing throughout implementation, UX collects an astounding amount of data that directly impacts every aspect of their day-to-day.

Huge’s Jessica L’Esperance moderates a panel featuring Method's Catherine Nygaard, Stamen Design’s George Oates, Facebook’s Matt Gallivan and AnswerLab’s John Cheng, as they provide their distinct perspectives on how they use data, both big and small, to make decisions about design. 

Open bar provided!
