  • Between Two Form Tags

    Form design seems very straightforward on its face, but it's full of little but very impactful questions. Where should I put field labels? What about microcopy? How do I make sure my form is accessible for people with disabilities? Should I have multiple pages? Radio buttons or a dropdown? What about error handling? Inline validation? Truly, these questions abound. Form design is something just about every front-end developer will have to deal with at some point in their career. So let's take a few minutes and make sure we're all doing the best job we can.

  • The Business Case for UX

    Depending on the product in question, good experiences reduce development and support costs, generate revenue, increase word of mouth marketing, improve employee efficiency, or any combination of these. Good experiences don't happen by accident, though - they are intentional, iterative, and egoless. Creating them requires multiple touchpoints with end users during all stages of design and development (regardless of the development method used - and yes, you can do it with Agile).

    In this session, we'll cover four major ways good experiences provide business value.
