5 Star User Experience:
What Going Out to Eat Teaches Us About UX Design
Are you hungry for a fresh perspective on UX design?
In this fun and interactive presentation, we will step outside the confines of our digital devices, and explore how great restaurants meet their customers needs (and how other restaurants fail to do so). Looking at the principles of restaurant hospitality, we'll discover how these principles apply to building better web sites and mobile apps. We'll discuss what great restaurateurs and great designers have in common and we'll generate some user experience best practices that participants can apply to existing and future designs.
