2016 marked the first edition of the UX+DEV Summit, the largest South Florida conference focused on user experience and development. This event came to life out of sheer need: the need to learn more about what lies behind great UX and why UX designers and developers need to work synergistically, not separately.
The 2016 Edition
From its first year, the UX+DEV Summit reunited numerous thought leaders in the industry, as well as more than 200 attendees. Students, UX designers, software developers, entrepreneurs, and digital marketers joined us to learn what end users expect from them, how their business can remain ahead of the trend and how to be the best at what they do.
Aside from the complementary approach and advocacy for development, UX, and testing working as a single team instead of three separate ones, last year’s edition also brought some valuable insights about up and coming technologies. Forecasts, analyses, predictions and case studies – all designed to help designers, developers and entrepreneurs better understand what the ingredients that make good UX great are.
If you’re curious about what happened last year, you can get a sneak peek into the summit via our YouTube channel.
With roughly half a month separating us from the 2017 edition of the UX+DEV Summit, we already have a pretty clear idea of what will be happening and what our best keynotes will be. But we’re not spoiling that for you! Instead, we’re just giving you the big picture and waiting to see you there for the “juicy” details.
The UX+DEV Summit of 2017 will have a hands-on approach. You’ll still get to learn a lot from the keynotes, but if you truly want to get your hands “dirty”, you’ll be able to do so in one of the numerous workshops held by UX and development professionals with more than 10 years of experience in the field. There’s no better way to steal valuable trade secrets!
We are also happy to introduce a plethora of new speakers, each of them with a unique perspective on user experience and development. From psychology insights to the right tools to create your web or mobile app, everything worth knowing will be covered during the summit’s three days.
The 2017 edition also brings a more focused approach to the Internet of Things. IoT is no longer just a buzzword; it is here to stay and change our personal and professional lives. At the UX+DEV Summit we will analyze how this will happen and what businesses can do to leverage the power of IoT.
