Our UI/UX Design Workshop is back by popular demand!
"Design is thinking made visible." - Saul Bass
Developing a website is often assumed to purely involve writing massive amounts of code to get them to function. But before all of that goes in, how do developers come up with how the website should look and operate?
As we continue our series of workshops, we now turn to User Interface and User Experience design, more commonly abbreviated as UI/UX design. It's a crucial element involved in the development of a website, as it ensures that design considerations are incorporated into the website, making it appealing and easy to use.Want to know more about what goes into this design process? You are welcome to join us as we will cover what are UI and UX, work on a sample design for a website together and understand what it takes to create a human-centered website.

Any fool can write code that a computer can understand. Good programmers write code that humans can understand.” – Martin Fowler
