Programming with Purpose


Ken Tabor


Design shapes our feelings. It generates responses from a fundamentally human place inside each of us. It happens as we touch real-world objects and internalize the virtual reality of software.

Should you purposefully include design in your programming work, and designers on your development team? Yes!

I’ll share why through real-life lessons:

• Why programmers should learn how to talk with designers.
• When your team should embrace design strategies for better code.
• How to use empathy and learn what your users need.
• What the word “design” means, and what problems design-thinking solves.

Attend this talk and let’s consider the future together!
