2-day training: UX and UI design for developers

13. July 2019

In a 2-day crash course, a high concentration of compact knowledge about user experience, usability and UI design. During the course, this is immediately applied in practical exercises, so that the trainees will even take tangible results with them.

The challenge:
"Every developer also has to be a bit of a designer." Especially development departments smaller companies do not have their own designers in the team. And the advertising agency or marketing department delivers things that don't technically fit. Nevertheless, software solutions, websites or app should look modern and good and be sustainable and easy to use. After all, design and usability is the key to sustainable product success. As a result, developers often have to do UI design and usability on the side – without having the appropriate training to do so. This leads either to moderate results or to over-reliance.
