What is “UX” anyway? UX stands for “User Experience” and when we say UX typically we mean UXD or “User Experience Design.” A simple definition that I lifted from a UX blog is “UX design is the process of designing (digital or physical) products that are useful, easy to use, and delightful to interact with.”
Can great UX design be taught? Is it simply a matter of having good taste? Many believe that great UX is indeed teachable and I’m here to give you wannabe UX’ers some learning platforms and online sources to check out.
