Topics I’d like barred from UX events
I’ve been in this industry a very short while, but after The Great UX Debate this evening I’ve come to a bit of a realisation. All the UX events at the moment seem to have the same topics, being talked about by the same people over and over. Sometimes there’s a bit of disagreement but it’s usually around understanding of the question rather than the topic. I doubt I’m alone in thinking it would be nice to have a bit of variety.
So here’s a list of topics I’d like to see barred from UX events:
- What is UX
- What do / should UX people do
- Should UX people code
- Are wireframes dead
- Moaning about cowboys
- Moaning about recruiters
- Responsive design
- Will UX be around in 10 years
I’m sure there are more, please send them my way and I’ll add them.
Don’t get me wrong I have masses of respect for the organisers of these events and the big name speakers who talk at them. A bit of variety wouldn’t go amiss though.
