Details

Without words, apps would be an unusable jumble of shapes and icons, while voice interfaces and chatbots wouldn’t even exist. Words make software human-centered, and require just as much thought as the branding and code. Andy Welfle, co-author of "Writing Is Designing: Words and the User Experience" will show you how to give your users clarity, test your words, and collaborate with your team. You’ll see that writing is designing.

About Our Speaker

When Andy was eight, he wanted to be a poet and a paleontologist. Twenty-seven years later, he is neither, but he uses those skills in his day job leading the UX content strategists on Adobe’s product design team — writing under huge constraints, and uncovering artifacts from big, old software interfaces.

When he’s not working, he’s creating podcasts and zines about one of his favorite topics: wooden pencils.

Find him in San Francisco with his wife and two large cats, or online at andy.wtf.
