Programme

UX London is a fantastic three-day event which opens with a day of inspirational presentations, followed by two days of practical, in-depth workshops covering core skills, strategic thinking and advanced techniques.

Workshops

Thursday 19 April

Workshop days are divided across three tracks so there will always be something for everyone. You can change tracks at anytime although workshop capacity is limited and seating is on a first come first served basis.

  • Morning Sessions

    9:00 - 12:30
    • Introduction to Axure

      Fred Beecher

      Lead UX Consultant Evantage Consulting

      Have you been struggling to wireframe rich website experiences? Interactive prototypes communicate those experiences much more effectively, and they allow you to integrate effective and iterative usability testing besides.

      Room: Green 1

    • Methods of Design Synthesis

      Jon Kolko

      Author of Thoughts on Interaction Design

      User-centered design research activities produce an enormous quantity of raw data, which must be systematically and rigorously analyzed in order to extract meaning and insight.

      Room: Ocean Suite

    • Content Strategy Will Save UX

      Kristina Halvorson

      Author of Content Strategy for the Web

      Content is often the number one reason people come to your website. But content is hard to deal with, which means it often doesn’t turn out the way we’d quite planned.

      Room: Blue 3 & 4

    • The UX Team of One Bootcamp

      Leah Buley

      Principal Designer at Intuit

      UX teams of one are the most important people working in our field today. They’re the boots on the ground, spreading user experience to products and people who have never encountered it before.

      Room: Blue 2

    Attendees can join one workshop from this session on a first come first served basis

  • Lunch

    12:30 - 14:00
  • Afternoon Sessions

    14:00 - 17:30
    • The Quest for Emotional Engagement: Information Visualization

      Stephen Anderson

      Author of Seductive Interaction Design

      Ready access to information is great. But many times there is too much information, too much data, or too many options to make sense of.

      Room: Blue 2

    • Mobile Input

      Luke Wrob­lew­ski

      Co-founder of Bagcheck, author of Mobile First

      Not only can we make input on mobile faster, easier, and more fault tolerant by focusing on detailed design decisions, we can go beyond traditional modes of input by taking advantage of the unique things only mobile devices can do.

      Room: Blue 3 & 4

    • Lean UX for Product Innovators

      Janice Fraser

      Founder of LUXr, co-founder of Adaptive Path

      Lean UX isn’t a new brand of UX, it’s an approach for employing classic user-centered design in a specific context. Lean Startup has prepared the business community to love what you do.

      Room: Green 1

    • Design for User Experience

      Dan Rubin

      Designer, singer, photographer, polymath

      It’s clear now more than ever that building for the web, mobile, and other devices is akin to product design, not graphic design: Everyone involved is a member of a design team; our roles are design-centric regardless of our title.

      Room: Ocean Suite

    Attendees can join one workshop from this session on a first come first served basis

  • UPA Event at the Carbon Bar

    18:30 - late

    There are (limited) places available for UX London attendees to join this UPA Event - pop along for a drink and a chat with fellow usability-minded folk.
