Welcome greeting and introduction.
Thu, 19 Mar 10:15 AM - 11:15 AMEffective Design: is there any way to know if you're good at your job?
After all these years, I'm still struggling with a very basic question: what makes a designer effective? I still don't know. But in this talk I'll present what I've found so far, in the hope that you can help shed some light on this for me. Conrad Albrecht-BuehlerBMW, Interaction Design Lead
Thu, 19 Mar 11:15 AM - 12:00 PMThe UX of User Experience
UX design is all the rage at the moment, but how usable is it as a process? When the top industry experts can't even agree to its definition (or even it's existence) how are you supposed to bake it into your practice, let alone sell it to your clients? In fact should you or your clients even care?In this session Andy Budd will try to demystify some of the rhetoric and dogma floating around about User Experience Design, and explain what should and shouldn't matter to your business, your clients and your day-to-day work as a web designer.Andy BuddClearleft, Managing Director

Thu, 19 Mar 03:30 PM - 04:15 PMChanging organisations to improve products
The key to creating great innovative products, even within slow moving and conservative organisations, is to change the DNA of the organisation. We need to change organisational behaviour to improve products, from showing instead of telling to changing the language of an organisation. It is also important to reduce the distance between the product designers, the decision makers and the people who use the products. This can be accomplished through increased research and team participation in that research. Leisa ReicheltGOV.UK, Head of User Research
Thu, 19 Mar 04:15 PM - 05:00 PMLions and tigers and handling user capabilities
Many applications restrict access to some features for some users for various reasons. For example: Only premium users get access to extra features. Only supervisors can edit product categories. I went on a hunt to gather patterns and techniques for handling the logic around user capabilities in client-side apps. Join me on a safari through the approaches, and Iu2019ll tell you what I have learned. Tiffany ConroySoundCloud, Frontend Developer
Thu, 19 Mar 05:00 PM - 06:00 PMLife is in Beta
Erik Spiekermann treats everything as a work in progress. His work is his life. And vice versa. Spiekermann believes what you do defines who you are; they are not separate. And while everything is in beta, we should constantly be thinking of rethinking design and redesigning thinking. But where do we start? In this talk Erik proposes a series of strategies from his daily life. Erik SpiekermannTypomaniac

Fri, 20 Mar 02:00 PM - 02:45 PMBanish your Inner Critic
Your inner critic is an unconscious deterrent that stands between the seeds of great ideas and the fruits of achievement, keeping you stuck by telling you you’re just faking it, that others have more talent, that you’ll never achieve the success you seek. Let's discover how to anatomize this pernicious inner force, and then learn techniques to banish this critic so that you can have the mental space and energy to let your true talents emerge -- and help you be a badass with your work.
