Co-creation between UX and Software

Simone de Gijt

Simone is a 30 year old scuba dive fanatic, who loves to dance, sing and go on adventures. She lives in Amsterdam and is currently working for OpenValue Amsterdam, for who she’s a Java and Kotlin software developer consultant. 

In her own time she volunteers as an educator on high schools about gender diversity and sexuality. Mainly to make the world a little kinder.

She loves to be in a group, mingle, collaborate, talk and explain. But she wouldn’t want to work without the excitement and satisfaction she feels when developing a new feature. She’s defined by the combination: social but nerdy!

What would happen if we would bring design, front end, back end etc. all together? How could we improve the user-flows by thinking of alternative, non-happy flows? What would happen to the performance and therefore the user-experience when back end is already involved before the finalised wireframes are handed over?! 

That’s all nice and dandy. But we do need to deal with some concerns like:

– Knowledge gap: How can the different disciplines with their specialty understand each other and come to conclusions?

– Shared responsibilities: Where do start and where do they end?

– Efficiency: What would it do to the efficiency of the team when they get different tasks?

In this talk we’ll try to address and hopefully take away those concerns and focus on the benefits it will bring, working in a hybride team.
