The Digital Pond is one of London's largest tech events series, with 2,444 members and growing. Our community welcomes everyone in the digital industry who wants to learn, network and be inspired.
Delivering a phenomenal user experience (UX) is all about connecting with your user and deducing exactly what they want and need. To do that, we rely on extensive research. But are we neglecting something?
The latest Digital Pond event will show how we risk forgetting our users – the very people we’re building for! – in mountains of data. We’ll explore how to reconnect and return our users to the heart of our UX designs. To do this, all we need is a little empathy.
Join us on Thursday 14th of September from 6.30pm for Empathy in Design. To save your seat, click on the attend button below and take a few minutes to fill out some details.
