CHIFOO presents "Designer Myopia" with Rian Van Der Merwe, Wildbit!

The all-too-common phenomenon whereby, despite our best intentions, we sometimes design with a nearsightedness that results in websites and applications that please ourselves and impress our peers but don’t meet user and business goals.

About the Speaker

Rian Van Der Merwe (@RianVDM) designs and builds high quality software that people love to use, and I wrote a book about it called “Making It Right“.

He spent seven years in Silicon Valley and then moved to Portland, OR in April 2014. He has been working as a Product Manager for Wildbit and an independent author, speaker, and product consultant with Elezea.

Come join CHIFOO for our ninth speaker event for 2016's theme "Bounded Irrationality: Supporting Users and Building Communities".
