UX Design Boot Camp: User Experience & Design Thinking

December 24, 2016

UX Boot Camp is an opportunity for people to learn about User Experience, Human Centered Design and Design Thinking. Now that we have millions of app available to us, we stick to the ones that provide a pleasant experience until something better becomes available. Companies are realizing that the only way to hold on to their users is by keeping them happy with a good User Experience. And the only way to give them such an experience is by reaching out to them.

Here, at the Design Thinking Boot Camp, you will be taught how to generate ideas targeting a specific problem and come up with an effective solution to it. For your own benefit, we have arranged the Boot Camp as a daylong event, divided into three sessions, so that you can learn to implement what you have learned with our help.

You will have help all along the steps. Mentors will be available to answer your queries and clear your confusions.
