UX for Developers. Say What?!

User Experience is becoming more and more crucial aspect while creating new applications. It aims to make life easier for the users, but at the same time is a huge pain for developers. The conflicts between UX designers and developers are inevitable, if you don't see benefits that UX brings to the project. I'll help you explain why it is so important and I'll shed a new light on UX from developers' perspective. After this presentation you'll never treat UX as a non-explainable magic or simply designer's whim. The presentation was given during conference for Java developers - Confitura, organized in Warsaw, on 4th of July 2015.
