Lightning Talks:

“Surveys: Why do they matter?” – Sarah Cho, SurveyMonkey Director of Research

Whether it’s on the web, over the phone, in-person, or even through the mail, we’ve all taken at least one survey. Why the heck does it seem like surveys are popping up everywhere? Are they actually helpful, or are they just a pain in the you know…? How can they go horribly wrong? Why should you think about using surveys for your work? (And how many questions can be crammed into one lightning talk?) Learn how surveys impact our everyday lives and how you can use them to improve what you do both at work and at home.

“Human Readable: Designing Data for Carbon-Based Lifeforms” – Sarah Goldschmidt, SurveyMonkey Product Design Manager

Data is everywhere — from your work desk to your smartphone to your fridge — and in 2019 it has evolved from the output of a digital product to the product itself. What does that mean for us as builders of products? Let’s talk about how designers can make meaning from data in product experiences and, with it, better, more human-centered technology.

“Transforming SurveyMonkey’s front-end platform with GraphQL” by Mala Neti, SurveyMonkey Software Engineer on the Web Platform Team

We’re excited to share SurveyMonkey’s journey towards revamping our front-end platform using GraphQL. Learn how we used GraphQL and Apollo Client to build out our aggregation layer, and follow along as we talk through some real-world examples and chat about helpful developer tools that we used along the way.
