TOPIC: Building Products for Humans
People have lives outside technology. We don't use our products in a vacuum. But how do you measure the human friction that exist outside your product screens? General Assembly Chief Product Shiren Vijiasingam walks through common traps and pitfalls that even the strongest teams fall into when building products, and offer practical tips to avoid them. Learn how you can build whole product experiences with a few fundamental techniques you can implement in your next sprint.
