The 2017 Game Developers Conference is going to be here before you know it, and today organizers want to quickly let you know about a cool UX/UI design talk taking place at the show.
Electronic Arts' Paul Rybicki is a veteran game maker, and at GDC next year he'll be sharing some critical design wisdom in his UX Summit talk on "UX Methodologies for Holistic Product Design."
This talk will focus on best practice methods for creating design deliverables which are readily digestible to other disciplines, thereby increasing product development velocity. If you attend you'll learn how to make your UX designs more holistic and repeatedly referenced, so you can spend more time iterating and revising in each sprint, while still keeping stakeholders from engineering, product or game design well informed of the current design direction and the game's design as a whole.
So make room for this in your GDC schedule, because you'll walk away with a better understanding of your design strengths and an understanding of player-oriented design methods that can be integrated into your existing workflows to provide more visibility and value to UX design across the team.
And there's lots more to come! Conference officials look forward to announcing more GDC 2017 sessions spanning a diverse array of game industry issues in the months ahead. For now, don't miss the opportunity to save money by registering early -- the deadline to register for passes at a discounted rate is January 18, 2017. GDC 2017 itself will take place February 27th - March 3rd at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
