It’s challenging to host the conference back stage with the team, live tweet and hold Live Q&A’s so bear with me as I try to recollect the day and recap! I tried to tweet the whole of day3 but that didn’t happen either, not completely at least. Now at almost 1 am I will have to disturb my colleagues and ask them for their takeaways :P
Alright, we started the day with that amazing video (Still gives me goosebumps) after which came in Vincent he spoke about success and leading teams in tough times. Keeping his talk aside, the coolest thing I figured about Vincent is - ‘He is followed by the Barack Obama on twitter.’ Got to ask him how he did that!
Moving on - Raffaella spoke about how they collaboratively conducted user research with a client. Some of her slides in which she showed stats were in Italian though but we got the point Raffaella! Super cool! After her came Paul who spoke about inclusivity and accessibility with some great examples and guidelines. Next was Sneha who spoke about innovating and the process behind it, she also spoke about how Wile E Coyote and Road runner are her inspiration for innovation. Cute reference!
After her was Meena, she spoke in depth about context. After her talk I feel, now I have a real sense of understanding and appreciation for how critical context can be in a research study. She was followed by Aprajit who spoke how they at Gojek use data, design and bring delight to their users with the use of data.
Veena and Ananya from Frog took over from there and spoke about how they designed a next gen smart purifier which uses algae to purify air in your homes. It was really cool, I would surely buy it!
To close the day, Marcelo came in and spoke about inclusive design. He compared and contrasted with some cool examples between real world and digital. He also shared many links, references for accessibility and inclusivity.
It turns out that my colleagues were awake. Hmm..😂
