More Than Logos: UX at Hackathons

Danya Azzopardi - More Than Logos

About the Talk

Often in hackathons teams are built with developers, entrepreneurs and maybe even a gun visual designer. UX Designers can find it difficult to contribute meaningfully in the condensed format and fight off the requests for visual design and making things pretty.

So how do you show the value a non-visual UXer brings to your hackathon team?

Danya Azzopardi will take UX Gatherings through her experiences bringing UX practice into a hackathon team — helping us articulate the value we bring to teams.
