Don't Design Like a Programmer
We developers have a hard time with user experience design. We get that it’s important now, but we don’t really know how to do it (even if we can write the UI code), and there’s never enough time anyway. Worse, UX design is very subjective and personal, so you might not like what I like and vice versa. It’s so much easier to focus on delivering the features, enabling the key tasks, and depending on user feedback to get the details right. Unfortunately, that approach often fails to deliver the great user experiences our customers expect today.

This workshop starts by quickly exploring the UI design approach typically used by developers and why such designs fail with users. We then quickly review an efficient, practical 6 step design process that you can use to make good design decisions quickly.

The heart of the workshop: You will work with a small team to apply the process by designing a simple mobile app, hands on, step by step. Towards the end, you will get to measure your success by doing an informal usability study and comparing your work with an app created by expert designers.

JavaScript: ES6 & Beyond
The JavaScript language is rapidly evolving. The ES6 specification ushered in arrow functions, templates strings, destructuring, iterators, and other great additions to the language. The next version of JavaScript, ES7, will bring even more features. This workshop will begin exploring some of the exciting additions to the language as well as best practices with the features available today all while building a few fun applications. We won’t be using any frameworks or third-party libraries. Just good-old-fashion vanilla JavaScript.

Workshop Prerequisites:
- We’ll be writing a lot of JavaScript code so make sure you have your favorite code editor installed. If you need one, download Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code (http://code.visualstudio.com/).
- You’ll also need a modern web browser installed like Microsoft Edge, Chrome, or Firefox.
- Course files will be provided when you arrive at the workshop.

Real-World Risk Management Techniques
As with any other aspect of operating a business, managing cyber risk well is predicated on making informed decisions, and then executing reliably within the context of those decisions. Unfortunately today, too many security teams still don’t understand how to effectively translate technical security issues into risk language the business can use.

During this interactive session we’ll debunk the myths about what risk is and what it isn’t. We'll practice techniques for measuring, documenting, and analyzing risks to help the business prioritize IT and security activities. Attendees will walk away with new tools and methodologies that will help them align security and risk with business goals, and help elevate security as a strategic and trusted partner.
