Lately I've been really interested in speaking. It's been not only a great exercise in solidifying my thoughts on design and how to teach the value of design to others but also an opportunity to reconnect with my former college community. I had really forgotten how much of a struggle it was to become a UI/UX designer on a campus with no design community/courses while surrounded by CS and finance/econ majors.
Here are the slides from my most recent workshop at Columbia University for ADI (Application Development Initiative) on the basics of what is UI/UX design. I am interested in other speaking opportunities on design/code/my experiences at Pivotal, so do reach out!
