We’re pleased to announce that this year, UsabilityGeek is an official media partner of Push Conference 2018 which will be held between the 19th and 20th October in Munich.
The following is the official press release of the event as provided to us by the Push Conference organisers.
Come And Celebrate Innovative Experience Design With Us At Push Conference 2018 in Munich!
Here is a teaser of what you should expect:
For the 7th time now, more than 600 experience designers and creative technologists will join us this October in Munich at push conference to take a close look at all things interactive. As always, we will not just feature talks and workshops but also a hands-on exhibition showcasing interactive projects from graduates and design studios all the way to companies like Bosch and BMW. And to continue the conversations during break time, there will be plenty easy going networking and side activities including a free Warmup night, Failure Slam and some more!
Some Highlights Of This Year
From Beautiful Maps to Actionable Insights
Shan He, who is a Senior Data Visualization Engineer at Uber, gives a glance at how her team creates live 3D data visualisation tools for the browser, that also help them understand their users and their business better.
Design in the Era of the Algorithm
What’s next is always the big question. Josh Clark will explore some of the possibilities to use machine-generated content, insight, and interaction as design material in everyday work. The challenges and opportunities of machine learning are plenty; learn to handle this powerful new design material with care and respect.
Creating a movement – How to make sure your ideas don’t die
As Design Tinkerer at Google, Adrian has experienced many times that good design and ideas don’t happen naturally. Adrian will share his recipe for how to transform the fragile idea of one person into a vision and a movement that unites and inspires a whole group to actually make things happen.
Experiment to innovate
Anders, Head of UX at Danish Broadcasting service, will show you how to escape tunnel vision and start focusing on building the right thing. The silver bullet is systematic and constant product testing. Anders will take the boring part out of testing and show you how easy it can be. He will reveal his playbook of cleverly thought out product experiments used by product builders at companies like Spotify, Booking.com, Facebook, Amazon, and Google and recommended by top universities like Havard, MIT, and Stanford. Besides the talk you can also explore this topic deeper in his workshop on Oct. 18th.
These talks are just a few of our 18 relevant and inspiring talks also covering
- Making Research Usable
- Embracing Friction
- Designing Anticipatory Experiences
- UI design outside the box – automotive and physical interfaces
- Animation in UI
A complete look at interactive design in 2018, really..
Get Interactive During Breaks In Our Exhibition
Conversations about interactive experience design can’t just happen on a stage or screen, and they shouldn’t stop during break time. That’s why we love to include a vibrant selection of interactive installations, creative technology experiments and well executed products to try out and discuss with their creators live on site.
Here are a few examples:
Moovel Lab’s “Who wants to be a self driving car” was presented the first time at a public event at push conference last year.
This year, you can meet Sebastian Gier and his BMW Xplore concept, envisioning future touchpoint experiences for mobility as a service, such as an augmented car window.
If you have an interactive project yourself, submit it here!
Join us on October 19–20 to connect to a keen and like-minded crowd of UX and IxD professionals from product teams like Mozilla, BMW or Bosch to visionary consultancies like frog, icon incar and IDEO as well as from aspiring startups.
Learn from a wide range of applied and visionary talks, acquire core skills in workshops and get inspired by a hands-on interactive exhibition while making new friends over delicious Bavarian beer and pretzels. Check out all the details at push-conference.com
See you in Munich in October!
