STC New England-The Interplay of UX and Technical Communication

User experience includes every interaction people have with a company and its products…from opening the box to setting up and using the product. When it comes to using an app to interact with a product, the visual and written content on the screens must work together seamlessly to deliver a simple and delightful experience.

In this program, we’ll learn how the partnership of technical communication and user interaction, from the early phases of development through product release, improves the user experience. We’ll hear two perspectives from those in the trenches: a technical writer and an interaction designer at Sonos, creators of the leading whole-home sound system. They’ll share how they’ve successfully collaborated on content in apps to create a better user experience.

6:00 PM – 7:00 PM: Networking and Dinner

7:00 PM – 8:30 PM: Presentation
