Jody Haneke, president of Haneke Design, will join four other design experts on a panel to discuss how the key to delivering amazing technology experiences begins and ends with user experience. The panel, which will be featured at the next Tampa Bay Technology Forum Engine Network event on June 5, will explore topics including how to make things usable, do user research, test your products and create a culture of testing, and manage the user experience design process in both Waterfall and Agile environments.
“I am passionate about creating great user experiences and hire people who share that passion as well,” said Haneke. “The importance of user experience in technology can’t be underestimated. Yet we still see new products and services every day that are confusing, complicated, and definitely not user friendly brought to market by people who should know better. I’m very much looking forward to this conversation and hearing from my colleagues on the panel.”
Joining Haneke on the panel are Tyler Goelz of Redwoodagile.com, Sean Walworth of Triad Digital Media, and Ken Whaler of Gyroscope Studios. Justin Davis of Madera Labs will moderate the discussion.
Before the panel discussion there will be a “Homepage Throwdown!” exercise – a gut wrenching, no-holds barred design critique, where attendees will be able to volunteer their site to be critiqued by the panelists in front of the audience. There will also be a gallery of user experience design documents available– sketches, wireframes, flows and more – so attendees can see how designers use these methods to design their products.
The event begins at 5:30 pm and takes place at the Tampa Museum of Art, in Tampa. Food and beverages will be provided. For more information and registration, please click here.
