We're all UX!

DroidCon Turin 2016, MaterialUp Berlin April 2016, GDG Berlin April 2016 and DroidCon Berlin 2016

Does your team consist of developers and designers? Do you sometimes feel the two speak a different language? Do you feel like the overall user experience of your product could be improved with better communication? Yes? We will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the two perspectives and provide you with practical methods to facilitate efficient designer/developer communication. Finally, we’ll talk about some tools and processes that have helped our teams overcome some common challenges.
