Manage episode 322986037 series 2573569
How much do you actually know about the history of UX? Think about it, UX has been around since before many of us were even in elementary school. 😳 There are many misconceptions around what a career in UX looks like and how it's evolved.
User experience has been around for decades, but it has only recently become a popular term. This is because we're now living in a world where technology is a massive part of our lives.
This episode focuses on Darren Hood's 25 years of experience as a UXer and the challenges he's faced. There's so much value in this topic, so he'll be back soon for part 2. In that episode, we'll dive into specific misconceptions I've heard in my career that Darren will fact-check.
If you have less than 25 years of experience in UX, I highly recommend you take a listen and learn from Darren's story. Tag @uinarrativeco on Twitter with your questions or comments.
