Viktoriia Leontieva: The scientific method of product design

For centuries, the scientific method has been used to validate all kinds of hypotheses in various sciences—chemistry, physics, geology, and psychology. Scientists from different scientific areas use the same core approach to find answers that are logical and supported by evidence. Within our life framework we too explore environment through experimentation. In this talk Vic will draw the parallel between the scientific method and product design, and how it can be introduced into our design workflow.

Vic is an end-to-end designer who takes interest in psychology, social studies and neuroscience. After taking a psychology course by University of Toronto, she enjoys finding parallels between psychology and design, and introducing them into her work process.

Radimir Bitsov: What you see is faster than what you get - ways to speed up perception

How do users perceive time? Why is it important to achieve better performance perception in comparison to the actual expectation? How can we be good to our users, and care more about their experience? Radimir’s talk will focus on these questions by presenting insights, practical techniques, and an overview of the experiential aspect of web performance.

Radimir is a front-end engineer with a passion for web performance, accessibility, and interface animation. He is a follower of the clean, intuitive and engaging UI/UX standards and as a self-learner he is looking everyday to expand and share his knowledge and skills.
