UX and Human-Centered Design for Happiness and Fulfillment / UX設計師們如何打造完美情人
This speech will go through how UX research and design is essential to ensuring that tech products really do make life better for users. UX research tests the developer's design and helps the developer see their work's impact through the eyes of their users. UX design allows the developer to design around the user's lives, habits, expectations and needs. We will discover how UX helps with: convenience, revolutionizing the workflow, impact and breakthroughs, as well as community and career support.
