Event description



Product Designer previously from customer centric e-commerce giant Amazon, Sena Filsoofi, will teach you how to design delightful user experiences at this fun and immersive 2-day workshop. Participants will form small teams and learn through hands-on exercises, lectures and class discussions

  • The layers of UX and all phases of the design process

  • Presenting the business value and ROI of UX design

  • Design thinking, user-centered design, and industry-proven methodologies like Amazons’ “Thinking backwards” and Google Design Sprints

  • Learn how to align user need, business goals, and technology

  • Understand how cross-functional collaboration gains buy-in and builds great products

  • UX Career Advice, building design within your org and finding work

This workshop is intended for anyone interested in learning more about user experience and how they can implement user centered design in their process. If you’re a designer, product person or developer, you’re probably already doing some UX whether you know it or not.

With a decade of experience designing across industries (E-commerce, Cybersecurity, Government, Logistics, Education, Startups) and mentoring at universities such as Columbia University and San Jose State University, we’ll break down the UX layers and help you formalize your instincts into a structured design process and documentation.

Ask your employer for training budget and consider inviting members from your cross functional teams to join if your organization is still new to the process. Participants do not need previous UX design or software experience to be successful in this workshop. A digital certificate of completion is available for participants who complete the workshop.
