UX = User + Experience

  • Saturday - 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
  • Westwood Room
  • #ONA15ux

Do you need to read Martin Heidegger’s “Introduction to Metaphysics” to build a great mobile user experience? No, but understanding what makes a tool “present-at-hand” is an underlying principle for the field of human computer interaction. We will look at what Heiddegger thinks about hammers, what Mark Weiser says about “effectively invisible” tools and how, as our technology becomes ever closer to us (keyboards> mice> smartphones > wearables), bad UX can become a physical assault on the senses. Find out why UX is more important than ever and how learning a bit of philosophical hermeneutics can help you design the next big thing.
