Event description: 

UX is a field that is getting really old... really fast. It came on the scene promising instances of glory and grandeur, and has instead fallen flat on its ideals and promises. Why isn’t UX bringing us the wonder that it has promised? Well, in short, it’s because it has begun to move backward in a big way. In this talk Lis will explore why and how UX is de-evolving from a field of design thinking to a field of wireframe machines, what problems this causes our web and mobile teams, the solutions to this de-evolution and how we get to a place where UX is delivering as it said it would. This talk is for anyone that works on products that are used by people and whom is interested in learning how UX should be integrated into their teams, for optimal results. It is a discussion not to be missed.
