This Deep Dive Bootcamp will cover a variety of topics including why we need design, methods of design persuasion, UX research methodologies, software development methodologies, introduction to information architecture, data visualization, systems thinking, and the life cycle of product development.
While this course will mostly be focused on UX/UI design in the context of software development, students will also learn how this new skill can make them a valuable asset to any company, regardless of industry.
UX applies to anything that can be experienced, such as a website, a vehicle, a commercial, etc. It’s about the interaction between the user and the product or service, and the design elements that shape that experience. UI is the point of interaction between the user and a digital device or product that gives it a unique look and feel. Researching how individuals interact with products and services is a valuable skill, particularly when it comes to web and software development. As of January 2020, there were over 1.94 billion websites in existence. There are currently over 4 million mobile apps available for download on Android and iOS combined. Globally, more than 4 billion people are using the internet. Someone needs to design that experience, and that someone could be you!
Thanks to a partnership with the Thoma Foundation, the August 2021 cohort will be offered at no cost to New Mexicans outside of the Albuquerque and Santa Fe metro areas who are age 18-29. Learn more.
