User Experience Design and it’s place in startups [2]

After introducing UX to you in the first part, let’s talk about ways we can implement UX into our companies.

Of course you can think that all this buzz has been created by UX specialists themselves, but tell me – who is more hard-boiled data-driven businessmen than business angels? Marcin Treder, whom I mentioned before, recollects in his book UX Design for Startups words of one of the most important business angels, who said that “this is the decade of user experience design”.

“Hello World” / A few thoughts from World IA Day 2014

World IA Day 2014 - konferencja UX
So the journey starts here! Let me welcome you to Taste UX. Since it’s my first post, let me just introduce you to the type of content you might find here. I intend to regularly write (by ‘regularly’ I might at least once a week, but we’ll see how it goes) posts – shorter or longer about such things like user experience, usability, prototyping, user research or UX events. I hope this blog will eventually get big and rich in valuable content.
