Battling Deceptive Design: The Force is with You!

Deceptive design patterns are real and can create short term engagement and profits, but they also result in long-term pain for users and online experiences. This can leave users feeling tricked or cheated and can have a lasting impact for a brand.

UX Designers have the ability to influence a user through good design, or manipulate them through deceptive patterns, similar to how the Jedi and Sith have to decide how theyଁre using the Force. Weଁll discuss the top ten most deceptive design patterns and the negative impacts they have, as well as smart alternatives that can be used to benefit users, build trust, and make for better experiences.

5 Ways to Ensure Web Accessibility (and Avoid Legal Trouble)

What do Beyoncé, Domino’s Pizza, and Amazon have in common? They have all been sued for non-compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. And they are not alone. Kevin will share 5 ways to ensure your web site is accessible (and can avoid legal trouble) and will discuss what ADA and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines guidelines are. 
UsableNet has found on average, one web site-based lawsuit is filed every hour. This presentation asks and answers: Who is suing and why? What are the consequences? Why is it happening and what can be done about it? Kevin will highlight which groups are served by web accessibility, outline ways to achieve the WCAG guidelines, and provide an understanding of how ADA noncompliance lawsuits originated. You’ll also learn how to broaden your market penetration by ensuring your web apps and sites are accessible to all.
