Abstract

“Amazon does it like that, WHY can’t we?”, “I don’t think our app is difficult to use at all”, “I showed my app to my partner.. He/she didn’t like it.” - These are of some well meaning words coming together to form no meaning; or worse, they provide an adverse value. But, how do you avoid saying or listening to these words?

This talk helps in understanding what design really is, the real role of a designer, basics of design, giving & taking feedback and how you can fill a designer’s shoes and bring design values to your product.

The talk is intended for engineers, freelancers and entrepreneurs with knack for design. This talks doesn’t romanticize with the idea of design; instead we will communicate about designing and shipping in the real time sensitive world.
