We all care about making pages faster, but *why* do we care? And how fast is fast enough? Tammy Everts will be sharing findings — from user surveys, eye tracking studies, and neuroscientific research — that answer these questions. She’ll also share some useful tips for creating the illusion of faster pages. Some of the questions Tammy will explore during this session: •Why do we, as internet users, crave fast online experiences? •There are a ton of performance metrics, but which one(s) are the best for measuring perceived UX? •What are some tricks you can use to make pages *appear* to render faster?

As designers, we find ourselves working with increasingly new technologies and data sources — Virtual Reality, quantified-self, RFID, internet of things, interactive architecture, and more. Technological trends change so rapidly: how can we use them in meaningful ways, in enduring ways? This is the challenge taken on by Local Projects, an experience design firm for museums and public spaces. Their work invites visitors to browse an entire art museum with just a facial expression, explore the invisible conversations taking place between smart home devices, become a designer with a digitally-augmented pen, and explore biometric data captured during a museum visit. John will illustrate the core principles that guide the firm's work as he walks us through their most innovative projects. John Ryan is the Direction of Interaction Design at Local Projects, an experience design and strategy firm for museums, brands and public spaces.

The specifics of how UX practice is integrated with Agile can vary widely based on the type of company you work in. Here, we'll get two perspectives on how to be effective as a UX practitioner. Anthony Viviano will talk about how he, as an interaction designer at Bloomberg, performs discovery and design tasks in the same sprint as development, and discuss how he also staggers design tasks ahead of development, while performing research as a separate track. Dan Kalafus will talk about balancing the holistic approach of the designer with the iterative approach of Agile, and how this is a challenge for any team – but even more so in an agency environment, where clients want fixed-price contracts and guaranteed scopes. In this talk, Dan will describe some ways he's found to reconcile these needs. We hope you can join us!

Important: Please register to attend here. Your RSVP on this events page DOES NOT admit you into the event!

In this talk we'll dig into the essential concepts in implementing a proper full-text search, highlighting the challenges such as sorting by relevancy, term and column boosting, stemming and lemmatisation, and the brutality of compound words. Along the way we'll look at implementing full-text search with an embedded search engine as well as with SQLite's FTS3 tables, making sure we don’t clog the UI thread while we’re at it. We'll also touch on integrating your data with Core Spotlight's index on iOS 9. Speaker Lasse Koskela is a principal technologist at Reaktor. Veteran VC Adam Dell will also be pitching YOU his new business… Clarity! Adam Dell is a serial entrepreneur, venture capitalist and academician.

Behavior change products are simultaneously compelling and incredibly difficult to build. For example, how does a product teach users a new language, or even healthy habits that will make them lose weight? Based on the works of prominent behavioral economists, we'll cover the thought process that leads a user to take action and how to foster it. We'll also learn strategies that you can apply to the product design process to help your users change their lives. Presenter from Noom: Logan Merriam, Product Designer. Logan is a product designer at Noom Inc, where he builds products that help patients of chronic disease reverse their conditions through behavior change. Prior to that he was lead designer at Kinsa Inc, tracking the spread of disease using a smartphone-based thermometer.

Over 4,000 U.S. workers die on the job every year, and more than 3 million get injured. New wearable technologies are aggressively entering consumer applications (Fitbit, Skully, Apple Watch) but industrial safety equipment has not seen any fundamental innovation in the last decade. GuardHat addresses this issue with its "smart hard hat ecosystem", essentially an IoT device in a hard hat form factor. GuardHat is an industrial wearable that uses IoT and wireless communications systems to protect and empower industrial workers. By collecting and analyzing sensor-based data, GuardHat blends existing and emerging technologies to prevent safety incidents and to intervene more effectively when incidents happen. Anupam Sengupta is a co-founder and the CTO of GuardHat. Previously, Anupam served as the CIO of Severstal North America, a subsidiary of OAO Severstal, a global metals and mining company.
