User Experience Engineering (UXE) is a relatively nascent role in our industry, but it's crucial to the product design lifecycle. As creative bridge builders, UXEs rapidly turn concepts into reality through prototyping and develop tools to empower design teams. Learn how this discipline operates at Google—how it came to be, where it fits in to the overall design process, its impact and rapid evolution—and find out if your passions, interests, and skill set make you an ideal fit for this unique role. A talk not to miss by UX engineers Munish Dabas and Mindy DelliCarpini!
