A lot of (otherwise) brilliant people go about building shiny new gizmos/apps/services without putting a lot of thought into the experience they end up creating for the end user. On August 10 (that’s Wednesday evening), TechCabal and OLX convened a Masterclass at iDEA Hub’s first floor, to talk about building products, interfaces that humans will actually interact with.
In the same vein, we brought
the cavalry a small army of people who spend their days thinking about how the products they build affect the lives of the users that use them, to come talk to designers, developers, and really, anyone else who cared enough about to register and attend the Masterclass.
The speakers were Stephen Ballot (Chief Technology Officer, Sub-Saharan Africa at OLX), Stephen van der Heijden (the Consultant Product Owner, OLX Sub-Saharan Africa), Kene Udeze (UX Lead at CcHub, and convener of a community of UX designers called Usable), Ire Aderinokun (Design & Tech Lead at Big Cabal Media). Oh, and we had SMALL CHOPS.
