Intro to User Experience (UX)

  • This location is shown only to members

This 2 part Intro to User Experience course runs Wednesday, 12/7 AND Wednesday, 12/14. The class time will be from 7-9:30pm each evening. 


At its core, User Experience (UX) is defined as how someone feels about in the process of using a product, system, or service. Regardless of what we’re designing--a website, an Android app, or a tangible product --we all strive to make our designs useful. But how exactly do we make something translates our intention and purpose? How do we know if the target audience is having a good or bad experience? This class will arm you with the essential tips to find those answers.

This class is for anyone who makes (or wants to learn how to make) websites, mobile apps, or other software. No coding is required. If you’re a developer, a designer, a project manager, a content creator, or something else, you can integrate UX research and design into your practice.

By the end of this class, you’ll also learn tips and techniques to address the following:

• Fundamental concepts of user experience design
• How to find out who your users are
• Creating user personas
• Identifying usability problems and prioritizing solutions
• How to design and run usability tests 
• Getting useful feedback from your users
• Information Architecture and interaction design
• Where UX fits with project management methodologies
• And more!

This is a hands on course which will give you actionable tools to get started with user experience in your work day! Light snacks will be provided.

    Hello, Is there any way an additional spot could become available? I've been trying to sign-up for this course since there were 3 available spots and had had to get Meetup support due to my account not working :( Thanks, -Kelly

      Hi Kelly - unfortunately we have a limited # of seats to the class space at the venue. If someone cancels, I'll be sure to let you know. We also plan to host this workshop again in Q1 of 2017.

    Hello, would this class be suitable for someone that's just started to learn to code? I only know a bit of Python I learned from a previous class.
