Life After HCDE: User-Centered Design, Consulting, and Clients
You’ve graduated from HCDE and have now been assigned to your first design project for a client. What happens next? In this talk, Rohit will share his story of joining a Seattle design consultancy after finishing his master’s in HCDE, and completing a large project to transform a company’s way of doing business. He will talk about how HCDE is applied to client projects, working in agile software development, and what he wishes he paid more attention to while in school.
