This is a pilot event. Seats are limited.
LET'S GO YUM CHA!
Literally meaning "drink tea" in Cantonese, going to yum cha is an important Hong Kong breakfast/brunch tradition and dining experience. For the uninitiated, dim sum can be intimidating. Through a workshop focused on design thinking activities, designers and non-designers alike can practice concept modeling, ethnographic research, and mapping. You get a chance to think about what it means to design for accessibility and usability through a yum cha experience.
WHAT'S SPECIAL ABOUT UX OF DIM SUM
San Gabriel Valley UX events are focused on active learning, sharing and connecting as a community. As the first UX of Dim Sum event, we're still figuring things out and fine-tuning the workshop experience. It's the first of its kind and we will rely heavily on you to learn about the challenges and questions you have about approaching and thinking about user experience, service design, and content strategy.
WHAT YOU'LL GET WHEN YOU ATTEND UX OF DIM SUM
We'll provide you with plenty of opportunities to learn, network, and have fun -- it's a two-part workshop. We'll start with the food. You'll receive a workbook to take notes and sketch your observations around understanding the environment, the players, the challenges, and the opportunities.
In part 2, we'll relocate to a classroom nearby. It's a 7-minute walk from the restaurant. Armed with stickies and markers, we'll map the domain of dim sum and talk through how objects are connected, structured, and related to the customer/you!
You'll come away having practiced service design methods, such as personas, service blueprints, stakeholder maps, journeys, jobs to be done.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND UX OF DIM SUM
