Description


Why learn about UX design?

With great design comes great responsibility. User experience (UX) design isn’t just about creating pretty or functioning websites - it’s about creative solutioning and trying to make people’s lives and experiences better.

As designers, we need to remember that we aren’t designing products for ourselves, but for other people. Being a UX designer allows you to work with and problem solve for a variety of different people, and empathy plays a huge part in this.

During this collaborative learning experience, we’ll explore the difference between UI and UX, and how they work together. We’ll walk through the design cycle; including discovery, user testing, and user personas. Learners will also have a chance to experience different UX methods through hands-on exercises, including building physical and digital prototypes.


Who is this for?

Our Ladies Learning Code workshops offer female-identified and male-identified, trans, and non-binary adults hands-on, project-based learning experiences that are designed to give beginners the skills and confidence they need to become digital creators.


Prerequisites:

None! This workshop is designed for beginners.


What's Included:


4:1 student-to-mentor ratio with an awesome lead instructor. Great venue with a fun, social and inclusive learning environment. Catered lunch. Yum! We'll try our best to accommodate any dietary restrictions (no promises)!
