  1. Disposition: Must be comfortable with using a pencil and paper for drawing simple things like flow-charts, simple charts, boxes, arrows, lines, etc.
    Comfortable with the English language.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q. Hi Niyam, I am associated with UX design for past three years. Can you provide more details about the iOT topic, so that I may have a clear idea of what value i will get out of it. Thanks, Yogendra
    10:09 AM, 25 Aug, 2017
  •     A. We are copying the organizer on this email to share the information with you. Design Revolution - Please share the information with Yogendra about the workshop. Thanks, EH
          5:37 AM, 26 Aug, 2017
  •     A. Hi! Yogendra, Thanks for writing in. You ask about the iOT topic detail specifically. This UX Design workshop covers principles of UX Design that are universally applicable including for iOT. These are based on over 50 aphorisms of Design, and for iOT around the insight offered by Tanenbaum and how it has come to fruition in the 21st century. I've had to remove specific modules for iOT and hardware product design though I started with these about 3 years ago. The understanding of UX Design is still in its infancy stage in India and there are huge gaps in the knowledge of even professionals and veterans. So focussing on all of those. Plus, the demand for iOT based design specifically, has been close to nil so far. However, in the real world simulation project that we do on the second day you are welcome to work and present your own iOT project or a sample iOT project as a test-case, applying all the new principles you'll learn in the UX Design workshop. You could start working with the UX Design of it at the end of day 1 on your time, and based on the topics we'll cover so far. Then let's see how it goes. One things for sure. Your fundamental understanding of UX Design and your creative approach towards UX Design will change after this workshop, should be able to grasp and follow the deep concepts shared here. I've had a guy who was into hardware medical appliance design, attend this workshop about two years ago. His work and his career went into a new trajectory after this workshop even though we did not specifically cover iOT. He later come to one of our Temple of Design meets to present his work and share it here. Another guy at a workshop in Hyderabad working on Home Automation also had a similar epiphany. So it's all up to you. You have the freedom to choose if you wish to enroll, obviously. Design can't be taught. It can only be caught. By you. Regards niyam
