Where design + development meet

Join us for a panel discussion with industry experts about collaboration as part of our weekly Master of User Experience Design class.

What's it all about?

How might design, development, and business work better together? What challenges do we currently face and how might they change in the future? Listen, participate, brainstorm, and learn more about how might we facilitate better interactions throughout the design process.

Our wonderful panelists are:

  • Kate Henderson, Lead Android Developer at PaperKite
  • Andrew Millar, Experience Director at PaperKite
  • Shanshan Zhou, UX designer and researcher at Optimal Workshop
  • Andrew Tokeley, Product Leadership Coach

Tweet your questions in advance to @WellingtonICT using the hashtag #techweek and we will try to include them in the discussion.
