Session Track: 

Front-end, User Experience and Design

This track covers delivering projects focused on the most important audience—the end user. Learn how to leverage Drupal to help you keep abreast of emerging trends in the mobile, componentized Web world. We’ll show you strategies for fostering collaboration between content creators, designers, strategists, and end-users.

User experience (UX) is the basis for all Web activity, and thus underpins everything we do in Web design and development. Successful projects bake UX in from the ground up, from discovery through planning, iteration, testing and deployment. No matter how beautiful our code may be, of what use is it if it’s irrelevant to our users?   I will show you methods for integrating UX into your process in order to anticipate, plan, and build products that are relevant to your audience. This session will cover an iterative workflow that includes strategic, technical and content components. Most importantly, user empathy will also be covered, as well as methods for including UX into projects with limited resources.
