- Started the day off right --with Breakfast Tacos, of course.
- My first full talk was by Christine Herrin, called "It's not ready yet: the perfectionist struggle". Light & motivational.
It is my favourite time of the year as a designer: the IxDA Interaction conference!
And for the first time since it started, I didn't have to leave my current domicile to experience it! This year, the conference came to NYC.
It had been a while since I took a workshop before the main conference (the last time was a mobile prototyping full-day workshop at Interaction 12 in Dublin). This time around, it couldn't have been in anything more exciting and relevant that chat bots & Alexa.
I recently came across this very interesting article written by Mark Manson called "7 Strange Questions That Help You Find Life Purpose".
I highly encourage you to read it. After all, (like the article says) there are many people out there who don't really know what they want to do with their lives.
I moved to New York City 15 months ago from Austin, Texas.
The reason was primarily professional: I was offered a position as a UX Design Lead at JP Morgan Chase. I was told the main goal of the design team that was being built was to ship a native mobile payment app called Chase Pay.
