WHO THIS BOOTCAMP IS FOR
UX design can be viewed as the “human” side of the technology. It’s an ideal career path for anyone who wants to be involved in tech, but not as a pure coder. Some key attributes of a great UX designer are empathy, curiosity, problem solving, and being able to communicate complicated concepts clearly to others.
This program is perfect for individuals who have existing expertise, professional backgrounds, life experience or a degree that can be a foundation for your new UX design skills. User experience is a practice that borrows from and lend to a variety of other disciplines. For example, if you’re an experienced graphic designer struggling to stay relevant in the job market, adding UX design skills makes you extremely attractive to employers because of the way you can leverage your design/aesthetic experience into your UX design projects. This holds true for coding, product design, psychology and more.
