    Piccia Neri: UX for everyone

    WordCamp Nordic 2019Speaker: Piccia Neri

    June 10, 2019 — Think that the UX process is only for big agencies with big clients and big budgets? Think again! UX research and methodology can, and even must, be part of any web project, no matter the size. It’s possible, and I’ll show you how. In fact, you’re probably doing UX research already in some form, and you don’t even know it.

    This talk demystifies UX and shows you how to make it an integral part of your web design process. The improvement is guaranteed: for you, your clients, and your clients’ clients.

    Michelle Schulp: Squash & Stretch & Good UX: Using Animation To Enhance User Experience

    WordCamp Phoenix 2019Speaker: Michelle Schulp

    March 11, 2019 — Modern browsers, JavaScript libraries, and CSS3 have made it easier than ever to create exciting, dynamic animated experiences within web interfaces. But we have also seen the unfortunate side effect of trying to do too much: websites that are resource hogs, eating up bandwidth and slowing load times to a crawl, all for effects that are ultimately just there for the “show” factor. This talk will discuss how to use these animation skills for good: to establish context, convey status, give feedback, and yes, even add a little delight. Along the way, we’ll discuss the principles of animation that guide everything from your favorite feature films to the actions of a button on your screen, and learn how deliberate animation choices can improve the experience for your user.

  • Andrea Zoellner: Copywriting for Better UX

    Andrea Zoellner: Copywriting for Better UX

    WordCamp Toronto 2018Speaker: Andrea Zoellner

    December 28, 2018 — When we think about UX, we’re often so focused on fonts, colors, and flow to think about those small bits of text that guide users through almost every part of a web interface—the microcopy. Gutenberg makes it easier to craft engaging multimedia content and improve the user experience of your site. But what about the less sexy parts of a website like menu labels and buttons, error messages and interface instructions? These words may be tiny but they can make a significant difference in the usability of your design and affect crucial aspects of your site such as its conversion rates.
    This presentation offers copywriting and communication tips that will immediately improve your user interface microcopy so your users experience is a more delightful and less frustrating one. The talk will focus on interface copy for end-users and note where elements can be edited with Gutenberg.

  • Laura Strader: Designing a Conversation - An Intro to UX Writing and Conversational Microcopy

    Laura Strader: Designing a Conversation – An Intro to UX Writing and Conversational Microcopy

    WordCamp Philadelphia 2018Speaker: Laura Strader

    December 5, 2018 — We’re all humans, right? The primary way we exchange information with each other is by having a conversation and that’s what users expect from websites and apps. They want to know the how and why when they’re asked to give up valuable personal information. Everything from lead forms to loading screens are a part of the conversation and should be answering those questions. And just like a conversation, the flow of information is expected to go both ways.

    In this talk, we’ll discuss the art of designing the words people see when they interact with software and how to craft a genuine conversation with your users.

    Alisa R. Herr: The Ultimate Guide to Building the Worst Product

    WordCamp Raleigh 2018Speaker: Alisa R. Herr

    June 20, 2018 — Let’s face it. There’s a gap between what developers care about and what users care about. In this session, we’ll explore what happens when we ignore this simple fact. We’ll discuss what UX is and why the user’s experience matters, how to think like your users, and some new rules we can all get behind. After all, UX is more than just about visual design, but also about making sure systems are set up in a way that makes them easy for people to actually use.
