    This course is organized by the local chapter of Girl Develop It (you do not need to be a girl to join or attend the course). You can learn more about the group at Meetup (

    This 3 part Intro to User Experience course runs on Wednesday evenings: February 26th, March 5th and March 12th. The class times go from 7:00pm to 9:00pm each evening.

    At its core, User Experience (UX) is defined as how someone feels about using a product, system, or service. Regardless of what we’re designing--a website, an Android app, or a toaster--we all strive to make our designs useful, easy to use, and enjoyable to use. But how exactly do we make something useful, easy to use, and enjoyable? How do we know if the target audience is having a good or bad experience? This class will arm you with the essential tips to find those answers.

    This class is for anyone who makes (or wants to learn how to make) websites, mobile apps, or other software. If you’re a developer, a designer, a project manager, a content creator, or something else, you can integrate UX research and design into your practice.

    By the end of this class, you’ll also learn tips and techniques to address the following:

    Fundamental concepts of user experience design
    How to find out who your users are
    Creating user personas
    Identifying usability problems and prioritizing solutions
    How to design and run usability tests
    Getting useful feedback from your users
    Information Architecture and interaction design
    Where UX fits with project management methodologies
    And more!
    This is a hands on course which will give you actionable tools to get started with user experience in your work day!

    Your Teacher: Sarah Kahn, Senior UX Designer at Deutsche Bank
