  • Hands-On UX Strategy & Prototyping Workshop by Jaime Levy (with JustInMind)

    UX strategy is a process that should be started before the design or development of a digital product commences. It is a practice that when done empirically is a better guarantee of a successful digital product than just crossing your fingers, designing some wireframes, and then writing a bunch of code. It's the method by which you validate that your solution actually solves a problem for real customers in a dynamic marketplace. Take this workshop to experience a deep dive into the subject matter with both lectures and hands-on exercises. Who should attend UX/UI practitioners of any level, product teams and managers, business executives, and startup founders that want to learn how to be more strategically sound in their process. What you will learn: Why the empirical practice of user experience strategy is crucial for devising successful online products How to validate a value proposition and a provisonal persona How to identify direct and indirect digital competitors of your value proposition How to use storyboarding for creating a narrative that focuses on a products’ value innovation and business model How to create a basic rapid prototype using Justinmind Having a laptop is highly recommended, but not required. You can work in teams of two on the exercises that require a laptop. Laptops will not be provided. What’s Included in the Day: Full day of interactive, hands-on learning Lunch and snacks A copy of Jaime’s book “UX Strategy: How to Devise Innovative Digital Products that People Want” DATE AND TIME Thu, November 16,[masked]:00 AM – 5:30 PM PST LOCATION: Intersection for the Arts 901 Mission St.3rd Floor San Francisco, California 94103 Cost: $379.00 Use Discount Code "CardinalHire" RSVP: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/hands-on-ux-strategy-prototyping-workshop-by-jaime-levy-tickets-38662660057

Venture Beat (https://www.geekwire.com/2017/hewlett-packard-enterprise-machine-mars/) calls it a "..monster made for Mars". Business Insider (http://www.businessinsider.com/hpe-the-machine-prototype-computer-big-data-2017-5) calls it "..unlike any other in the world". Talk Title: Programming models and tools for Memory-Driven Computing Abstract: New technologies in persistent memory and fabric-attached memory present opportunities for software. We will explore programming frameworks and solutions we have developed in the context of The Machine program at Hewlett Packard Enterprise, which demonstrate to application developers how to access persistent memory, focus on in-memory data, share data easily and maintain data consistency in the face of failures. These tools illustrate how software can benefit from Memory-Driven Computing. Speaker’s Bio: Susan Spence is a senior research engineer working on Managed Data Structures software for The Machine at Hewlett Packard Labs. Her current research focuses on ease of programming and data sharing for data structures created and used directly in persistent memory. She has experience in distributed systems, storage systems, information management, and persistent programming languages. Susan has a PhD in computer science from the University of Glasgow in Scotland on persistent, distributed systems, a number of publications and patents, and has worked for Hewlett Packard Labs for 17 years. Also our wonderful hosts Hewlett Packard Labs will be providing pizza and beverages! Silicon Valley Robotics is delighted to bring you this special presentation. 7 to 7.30: Arrive, refreshments and 'petting zoo' 7.30 - 7.40: Introduction to 'The Machine' 7.40 - 8.30: Speaker, Susan Spence, Snr Research Engineer 8:30 - 9: Q&A and networking.
