UI design by front-end devs

Talk Abstract

Being a front-end developer doesn’t always mean being aware of good design. Join two front-end engineers to learn how they built their design portfolio without any formal training. Experience their struggle through the Daily UI Challenge, how their designs improved, and what they discovered during the process.

Speaker Bio

I'm a frontend developer at Rokkincat and a human-computer interaction graduate student at Iowa State University. My bachelor's degree is in psychology, so I love to integrate knowledge of user behaviors into how I develop to provide a user-oriented experience. I also have a passion for promoting developer experience and believe this aspect of design and engineering is critical to create a successful project.
