There are frequently too many things to cover and too little time to properly address them all. This will be an experiment in fixing that.
Along the way you will find yourself with not enough time, not enough people, or not enough resources to do everything you know can be done to do great work. We’ll go over usability, design, interaction, consulting, and accessibility techniques, or maybe go off in a different direction entirely. The choice is yours and yours alone in this “Choose Your Own Adventure” talk
Chris Wilkinson, is a Product Designer with Pivotal Labs out of their Chicago office. He’s previously had such roles as Interactivator, Experience Designer, and Interaction Developer at agencies, start-ups, and ThoughtWorks. All of these have been efforts to contextualize the multi-faceted nature of UX and design in today’s software development landscape.
As a character reference, he’s been a life long fan of Cleveland sports, for better or worse. How that happens is a mystery since he’s originally from Muskegon, MI. When not behind a screen you’ll find him on his porch enjoying the last days of summer or at one of Chicago’s many summer festivals.
You can find him on Twitter @cwilk where you’ll hear about UX, music, craft beer, Chicago and most importantly, gifs.
