About This Event

User experience is so important today for any company that has a digital presence. The way that users use and navigate a website or app plays a huge role in how customers interact with a brand or business.

Join GA for a panel discussion on the good, the bad, & the ugly of UX design. What good and bad examples of UX/UI come to mind with apps, websites, or other technologies you've used? We're bringing in the pros to discuss their thoughts on the subject in an effort to do more of what we love and to stop doing what we don't.

Takeaways

You'll learn about awesome and not-so-great examples of user experience and user interface design, straight from the experts themselves.
