There have been many discussions lately wherein technology is being trumped by design when it comes to developing a product with the user in mind. Rohit Singhal from Sourcebits, in one of the interviews brought forth a very powerful mantra: “User interface and design are more important than engineering”. So, User Experience Design is a definitely a very important factor, especially for startups in India. Keeping this in mind, UX Utsav has tried to provide an opportunity to fill this knowledge gap. Attendees will be taught via practical, in-depth workshops and seminars, and will leave with the necessary skills to create compelling and positive user experiences.
