Emoji & Visual Communication in a Text-Based World

Online event

📢 Cincinnati Software Craftsmanship welcomes Cassandra Faris! 📢 💬 TALK DESCRIPTION 💬 From cave paintings to emoji, humans have always used images to communicate. Now we live in a world where communication is increasingly text-based. It can be hard to convey the emotion, subtext, and nuances of verbal communication through email, Slack, texts, and social media. This talk will discuss how emoji and other visuals can enhance your written communications. You’ll learn how and when to use them, with a focus on professional settings. You’ll also consider the challenges of relying on visuals to communicate. Along the way, you’ll discover how ASCII art and smileys became emoji and how they continue to evolve. If you’ve ever wondered why it took so long to get a taco emoji or why your social media feeds are full of memes, this session is for you. 👋 ABOUT CASSANDRA 👋 Cassandra Faris is passionate about the human side of technology.
