Education
    User Experience Design
     - 
    The course covered the hard skills and methods of UX Design, which included, user research, information architecture, strategy and scope planning, prototyping, wireframing, usability testing, and design specification production, but also focused on the soft skills such as stand- ups, agile design methodology, working in teams, and presenting our designs. These skills were put into practice through three conceptual projects, which were presented to a panel of General Assembly assessors: - A team project for Soundcloud to a platform for both tablet and mobile to allow DJ’s to collaborate in real time, changing the way users interactively share music. - Design an event planning micro-website for Selfridges to expand their online business. - Discover a problem that can be solved with an app and deliver a high fidelity mockup for the mobile device: An app to help newcomers of London attend fun and interesting events and meet like-minded people.
