“Don't have more than 7 items in a menu.” “Test your application with a focus group.” “All pages should be accessible in 3 clicks.” Really? There are many myths about user-friendly design – and they are simply not true.
Angie Born, UX Researcher & Consultant, will give us a brief introduction on what UX is, what the different sub-disciplines are, and will then debunk some of the most prevalent UX urban legends she still hears at meetings.
We'll also have time for a drink and some snacks. We'll provide the drinks, but ask you to bring along a snack.
Doors open: 18:30
Presentation and discussion: 19:00 - 20:00
Event ends: 21.00
