Lightning Talks Announced

  • Mickela Perera, The why and how of mobile accessibility
Through this talk, we would like to provide a slightly different perspective on mobile UX by discussing aspects of mobile design that leave people feeling disabled. We will begin by talking about how considering the needs and wants of all your users will result in a more accessible and usable experience for everyone. We will then discuss some of the key tools used by disabled people to consume mobile content (for example, VoiceOver on iOS) and finally provide a few top tips on what to consider when creating mobile apps and sites.
  • Chris Myhill, Five Steps for Mobile-Friendly Navigation
My talk will go through 5 'top tips' to creating a more mobile-friendly information architecture, and then translate this into navigation. Step one. Do your research. Step two. Let go of the words. Step three. Consolidate. Step four. Prioritise. Step five. Test.
  • Iona Seligman, Design for Super Niche
How do you design for gay fetish men as a female junior UXer and solo product designer? Guerrilla 101 is how. Hustle hustle hustle and you might end up with over 100 fetish guys on your phonebook. - Think outside the box - Develop empathy - Craft meaningful personas - Go to strange places - Make friends with Marketing - Get used to Analytics.
  • John Pagonis, UX Design + Scrum
Where does UX design fit in the Scrum framework? What is the role and placement of a UX designer in Scrum? How can a UX designer contribute to the backlog refinement, how much and when? We will quickly seed some ideas from experience on how to perform with a Scrum team if you are into UX design.
