The WeAreDevelopers conference that is taking place in Vienna right now is a world congress for developers. It’s lovingly called the “Woodstock for Developers” and this year, 8000 techies from 70 countries are roaming the conference (and the city) from May 16th to 18th.

We’re excited to tell you what has happened so far  ?

More and more brands are designing their products for positive emotions. The reason for this is simple: While brands used to ask questions like “Does this application work?” or even “Does this product work for you?”, there is one more pressing question at work when it comes to user experience. The question is: “How does our product make you feel?”

Positive associations are what makes users coming back, and brands are recognizing and designing for positive emotions.

In this article, we are exploring some ways to design positive user experiences.

In 2009, Tim Brown published his now famous book “Change by Design”. His idea: Design strategies and techniques can be used at every level of business. In 2018, Design Thinking has become a methodology and is used for innovative activities by project teams around the world.

Jake Knapp’s sprint concept and his book “Sprint: How to Solve Big Problems and Test New Ideas in just Five Days” are used in teams all over the world and has become a staple in agile process management.

Building a successful digital product in 2018 means developing products with your users and customers in mind.

89% of customers will switch to a competitor if they are not happy with your service or digital offering.

It’s as simple as that.

But the good news is: You only need to test your digital product with 5 users before you launch.

Only 5 user tests help you identify most major usability issues and, therefore, help you build better products.

Everyone wants to get more done in less time. However, that is not what Greg McKeown’s New York Times bestseller book “Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less” is about. It is rather a book about getting the right things done and focusing on the things that are essential while eliminating the clutter.

In the last few weeks, we covered productivity and communication topics here on our blog and asked how they can be applied to working together with your dev team.

In this article, we want to take a look at the tipsMcKeown’s is suggesting and ask how they can work when you are building digital products with your dev team.
