Event description: 

Those who don't learn from history are doomed to NOT repeat it.

We know the old adage, but the other reality is that there's nothing new under the sun. The same goes for the practice of User Experience (UX) and it goes back further than you might think.

History can be fun – especially when we see how it relates to our ever-expanding and shifting industry of today. This presentation is geared to new practitioners who want to understand the foundations of our field and veterans who would like to see a different perspective on our profession. Chris Palle will help us see the practice of UX through a historical lens at some of man's most creative pursuits and demonstrate the parallels between the past and today's design trends.
