Sessions

Get inspired to come up with an own!

What's a session?

A session is your slot of 45 minutes to tell us your latest experiences, discuss your UX toughts or share new ideas with the crowd. The only rule: your talk should be no longer then 30 minutes, so there is 15 minutes left for your audience to ask questions. – It would be nice if you could prepare your talk in English. But don’t worry, if you do not feel comfortable, please stick to German.

You are the camp!
As a barcamp participant you are strongly encouraged to come up with your own session idea. You will have the possibility to pitch it in the morning to all campers. If there are enough people interested in your topic, you will get a time slot and a room. – And there you go!

Proposed sessions

Best Practices in Agile UX and Lean User Research

Eva-Maria Schön (Senior Consultant, CGI)

From my experience as a researcher in the field of Agile Product Development I learned that we need to adapt classical methods of user research in order to succeed in an agile environment. I like to learn from your experience and reflect your learnings in a group discussion.

UX-Nachwuchs finden, ausbilden, übernehmen

Stefan Freimark (Lead UX Consultant, Aperto GmbH)

Absolventen von Weiterbildungen oder Studiengängen haben ganz unterschiedliche Wissenshintergründe, und gleichzeitig hat sich unser Berufsbild sehr aufgefächert. Um Berufseinsteiger fit für ihren künftigen Job zu machen, bilden die UX Designer bei Aperto daher selbst Trainees aus. Das ist nicht so einfach, wie man denken könnte…

Workshop: Empathy in Decision Making

Ming Lee (Lead customer experience researcher and designer)

I will share a way of giving empathy and building understanding when there is a challenging decision to make. I outline the approach and then we will all experience working with a real decision that we have recently made or need to make. It’s an approach that can add lightness and insight to challenging situations. It can also help you to build your understanding of why you and other people feel or react in different ways to situations. A useful tool for a UXer.

Anticipating User Needs with Data

Alina Cvetkova (Interaction Designer, XING SE (Barcelona))

These days it is not enough to simply provide an interface for the users to reach their goal: users expect so much more from their experience in using products. That’s why it is important to address user needs in a smart way, and sometimes they are user needs which the user hasn’t even expressed yet. In this session I will explain how anticipatory design and smart data help address this through Jobs-to-be-done framework.

Alexa, liebst du mich?

Dirk Platzek (User Experience Consultant, Wunschfeld)

Ist es soweit, dass sich unser Drang Beziehungen zu formen bereits auf Sprachsysteme überträgt?

Für den Beziehungsaufbau wird viel getan: Neue Algorithmen lassen die Stimmen immer menschlicher klingen. Familienmitglieder werden an der Stimme erkannt und persönlich angesprochen. Sie scheinen Humor und eine charmante Persönlichkeit zu haben. All das verstärkt die Bindung. Mit wem treten wir in Verbindung? Wie sieht Siri aus? Warum haben Sprachsysteme meistens weibliche Stimmen? Haben sie ein Geschlecht?

Flughöhe UX Strategie – Vision versus Machbarkeit und Angemessenheit

Diana Frank (Diana Frank – Nutzerzentrierte Prozesse)

Ohne Überblick UND Tiefe, lässt sich keine nachhaltige Strategie entwickeln. Im Gegenzug dazu steht die Herausforderung, dass Stakeholder für eine gewisse Zeit aushalten müssen, keine schönen glänzenden Bildchen zu sehen… und sich gegebenenfalls damit konfrontiert sehen, dass schöne Ideen manchmal einfach nur genau das sind, Ideen.

Prototype and create Voice User Interface (VUI) without coding

Alexey Vidanov (Founder Vidanov Digital / Voice Design Mentor at CareerFoundry, Vidanov Digital)

Voice it the most natural form of humans’ interaction, and VUI is the next big thing in technology. In the session you will learn how to test and implement VUI in the form of Alexa skills.

Talk to the inner voice of your design

Anil Kumar Krishnashetty (bitgrip Gmbh)

Anil will share why voice first/conversational UI gives engaging and great user experience. How to create voice first UI design.

Asking the Impossible. And whether we should.

Hartmut Obendorf (VP UX & User Care, XING SE)

This session is a test for you: experience how it feels to ask the impossible. And let’s discuss what we should be asking ourselves before we do.

From TestFlight into Apple and Play Store

Andreas Sonnleitner, Tim Faltin (SinnerSchrader Deutschland GmbH)

The way to the Apple and Play Store is sometimes hard. TestFlight helps to quickly integrate real users working productive. Starting with 10 manually delivered ipads, the app today has become an important milestone of a fully integrated marketing approach.
