"Jump Out of Your Comfort Zone!"

Are your nerves stopping you from achieving your true career potential? Change can be scary but making that next uncomfortable jump can also completely transform your career. During this talk, I will share how I navigated my own untraditional career transition and how embracing my nerves helped me to jump out of my comfort zone and welcome untraditional opportunities. You’ll be craving that feeling of nervousness by the end of this!

"Decrypting Design: Cracking the Code of Usability"

Making relevant software starts with understanding the humans using it. Many teams (and products) suffer from a gap in goals between typical design and development roles. Learn how to bridge this gap by aligning on a common goal - the needs of your users. In this introduction to human-centered design, we'll cover the fundamentals of the methodology, and specific techniques that you can use to shift your thinking from system efficiency to user needs.
