UX Boot Camp 2019

Design Thinking Workshop

UX Design Boot Camp 2019, we will focus on the issues E-commerce services face while trying to provide customers with a good experience. During the design-thinking sessions, we will help participants identify the real-world problems users face while interacting with E-commerce platforms and help them find design-based solutions to them.

The E-commerce industry in Bangladesh is all set to grow as internet becomes more readily available to the people. People every day are making the conscious decision of buying products online as the e-commerce platforms are providing consumers with a greater variety of choices and, helping them save both time and energy required to visit physical shops. The size of e-commerce market crossed the BDT 17.0 billion-mark in 2017 from BDT 4.0 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach Tk 70 billion (Tk 7,000 crore) by 2021, according to the data available with e-Commerce Association of Bangladesh (e-CAB).

With the constant technological advancements, companies are realizing that the only way to hold on to their users is by keeping them happy with a good User Experience. As the demand for UX Designers is increasing, we are facing a shortage of skilled UX Designers. After successfully completing three consecutive UX Boot Camps, we are arranging the next one in this year in order to create a surplus amount of skilled UX designers that can compete with the international market.
