UX Meetup with Indy.rb

Hey folks!

This month we're joining forces with the Indy.rb meetup group to present:

Making Our Users Feel Great: The psychology of making things easier to use
by Josh Walsh

The design industry has lost focus on what it means to be a user experience designer. It’s not about writing requirements, drawing wireframes, graphic design or even user research. It’s about making your users feel great.

While those other skills are important, they are just a means to an end. A way to enable users to accomplish what they need to accomplish.

We conduct user interviews and usability testing to learn directly from our users, but our brains aren’t wired to express how we feel. So, how can we learn from our user’s feelings to make our products better?

Josh is on a UX Tour and presenting at various cities in the Midwest/East. Join us and our friends at Indy.rb in welcoming him to Indy.

We'll have all the usuals: food, beer, non-beer, great people, good discussion. See you there!

    I enjoyed the presentation as well. Not something I haven't heard before though and I wondered how many of us are actually following a similar approach already. Loved to talk to Josh after that and discuss the preliminary ux design deliverables and such. Thanks to the organizers for putting this together. I look forward to attending more meetings when I can.

    My mind was kinda blown. A far bigger idea of UX than I had expected, in all the good ways.
