Talks:

1. "Agile UX: Designing for Users on the Run" by Stefanus Sunarja

Bio: Hi - I’m Stefan, UX Designer at Market Logic Software. When I'm not obsessing over the design of everyday things, I devotedly follow German football, go for a run, make some music, and binge-watch TV series. So if you want to have a chat about any of those things ("will Leverkusen ever win the league?", "awesome running track in Spandau?", "wanna join my band?", "Don Draper or Harvey Specter?"), be sure to hit me up!

Abstract: Since its inception nearly two decades ago, Agile Software Development has attracted devoted followers from almost all camps. Almost. Designers continuously struggle to justify Agile adaptations in their workplaces. Why do we, as designers, seem to have a hard time finding our place in the world of Agile? How do we reap the benefits that Agile has to offer while maintaining our user-centric vision?

2. "How being a 0.25x engineer makes you a 10x designer" by Florian Peninon

Bio: Florian has been working in the tech for the last 8 years. Working with agencies, startups and big corporations, he worked on a multitude of different projects across different industries. As a code-minded designer, he believes the future of product design lives between design and development.

Abstract: « Should a designer learn to code? » is a trendy question, but not the one we should ask ourselves.
« Should a designer pick the right medium to find the best solution? » is the right one. We will dive into how and why code can help you be a better designer in the long run.
