Last week I had the privilege of attending and speaking at my first UX Australia conference. This year it was held at the Grand Hyatt in Melbourne.
UX Australia is the largest conferences in Australia for our industry — there were 850 of us running around apparently — so it was only appropriate for the keynote speakers to be industry heavy-hitters.
With big names like Steve Portigal (California), Lauren Currie (NOBL Collective) and Alan Cooper (The "Father of Visual Basic") floating around, the bar was set very high and it did not disappoint.
Web Directions Design was held over three days in April 2018 with great presentations spanning a broad range of topics across the design industry. Some were focused on emerging technologies such as eye tracking, Blockchain and voice UI, others on the importance of research and ethics in design.
