Our Rabbiteer Sessions are our way of bridging the gap between university and the working world as well as a way to upskill yourself as a working professional. With the fast advancement of tech and design, we make sure you never miss out by giving experts a platform to keep you in the loop.

This session: Are you a dev working without a designer, and want to learn the basics of good design practices? Or a dev that does work with designers and want to understand the basics in order to give better input and feedback? Devs often get so caught up in making things work, they forget to consider the people that will be using their solutions. This talk looks at practical examples of how design principles can be used to create better user experiences. It's an introduction to design fundamentals and good practices, with practical tools from Material design that can help you create awesome software effortlessly.

Liz is a Senior Experience Designer at Retro Rabbit who is passionate about human-centered design, research, and solving problems. She's summited Mt Kilimanjaro, plays violin in the Pretoria Symphony Orchestra, and is currently busy with a PhD thesis. She strives to create beautiful and intuitive experiences on any platform, and to always fight for the people that will actually be using the solutions we create.
