Description

The Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership Business Improvement District (BID), in collaboration with General Assembly and local institutions and businesses, presents eight weeks of free education classes on the Flatiron South Public Plaza.


User Experience (UX) Design | General Assembly

What exactly is UX? User Experience is the overall experience of a person using a product such as a website or computer application, especially in terms of how easy or pleasing it is to use. Designing an object, product, website or application must include thoughtful decisions that encompass all aspects of the user's perception, needs, behaviors, attitudes and emotions that will ultimately lead to a desired outcome and result. Can these principles be applied to designing and optimizing the experiences in your life?


During this workshop with General Assembly explore the decision-making process that dictates how users interact with digital products and how you can apply those skills to your day to day life.

• Learn what the world of UX design encompasses and why it matters

• Touch on fundamental tools and techniques used by professional designers.

• Discover resources to continue learning about UX. General Assembly asks that participants bring their own laptop to this class.
