Event Details

Bridging People and Technology with Design

In this miniconference, we will look at the increasing importance of user interface (UI) and user experience (UX) design, especially in web and mobile applications. Is having an aesthetically pleasing interface enough to keep your users coming back? How does one design an application that is simple to use yet engaging and fun?

We will examine how entrepreneurs and developers can leverage on existing resources and trends to get design inspirations, and also how one can achieve effective simplicity in user experience design. We will also explore the ways to integrate design into the development flow, as well as using analytics to drive design decisions through techniques like A/B testing. 

Join Kevin Fox (Google, FriendFeed, Facebook, Mozilla Corporation), Luke Wroblewski (eBay, Yahoo!, Bagcheck), Jason Putorti (Mint.com, Votizen), Garry Tan (Posterous, Y Combinator), Jessica Mah (inDinero) and the rest of us as we learn more about the importance of UI/UX design.

Rainmakers LIVE! is a series of miniconferences dedicated to educating and inspiring the next generation of student entrepreneurs by giving them the opportunity to meet larger-than-life founders in small-enough-for-comfort sessions. 

Each event is centered around a technological theme on which relevant startup founders from the industry are invited to share their experiences. The first mini-conference was on Emerging Trends in Mobile, held in April, and we had Evan Doll from Flipboard, Bhaskar Roy from Qik, Bowei Gai from Cardmunch, Alvin Tse from TixxMe and Joe Beninato from Tello on our panel. We also had over 80 attendees at the event. More information can be found on http://rainmakerslive.com

We hope that this will succeed in bringing people together and fostering a network of entrepreneurs.
