Event: HIVE 2011 – Where Design and Tech Meet

by dberlinguette

Event Details:
A one-day event exploring the value of design in technology

The role of UX design in the software world is too often misunderstood. Companies aren’t sure how to hire for it, devs don’t know what to expect from it, and businesses aren’t able to effectively evaluate if a design solution will meet their goals.

But let’s face it, designers and developers need each other. Getting them to understand each other better and work together more closely is what HIVE 2011 is all about. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill lecture series. HIVE 2011 is a unique opportunity to jump in and directly engage with industry leaders on a broad range of topics that all impact the way designers integrate with other disciplines throughout the tech industry.

So whether you’re a company leader striving to infuse better design into your products, a software developer who wants to work more effectively with designers, a traditional designer looking to cross over to UX, a recruiter who needs to attract and evaluate talented designers, or a student trying to learn what it takes to design experiences in the software world­ -— you’ve come to the right place. HIVE 2011 is for you.
