    What Can User Experience Learn from Service Design?

    More and more organisations are turning to the holistic practices of service design to improve their service offering. Service design encompasses both how users experience a service, but also the internal processes and staff experiences that underpin them.

    So what can user experience learn from service design? During this talk Lily will highlight the similarities and differences between both methodologies, and take you through 3 simple ways your work can benefit from service design thinking.

    UX, Psychology, and the Power of 100

    What do an overnight 40% drop in road accidents, a night in on the sofa watching TV and a good night's sleep have to do with digital product design?

    Humans only have limited mental capacity and no-one is ever operating at 100%. We are all influenced by the world around us and by how our minds work. As designers we need to be able to understand this and design for it.  

    The power of 100 is a powerful way to understand the modern world we are designing for. How your website or app will be used in real life and to design for how people live their lives today. Combining psychology theory and the latest in UX techniques, the power of 100 is a modern design framework that matches the modern complex world we and our users live in.

    Automating Access to Development

    It’s never been a better time for individual developers or small teams to work to get their ideas built and launched. Easy to access and affordable tooling, modern frameworks, shared infrastructure and educational materials have helped to drive this renaissance of development. But we can go further into making development accessible with limited resources through the automation of common tasks and processes. We’ll look at how automation is shaping how we’re building now and how automation could help shape the future of development.
