ADDC 2017 - Jim Forrest: UX discothèque: How to DJ design & development thinking!

Using techniques from DJ culture and music performance, we will explore how UX design and development can be elevated to new dimensions using some tricks of the trade. Having worn both hats, Forrest will talk about empathy, dynamics, and uniqueness in both scenarios and how ultimately thinking like a DJ may help you build your best product yet.
