The MassTLC UI/UX Union, Syrinx Consulting Corp & the CIC Present:
Breaking Down "Where the MBTA Breaks Down"

Featuring UX Guru David Platt


Why is it that the apps that should be the most practical and utilitarian often are the most useless and frustrating? Did the developers just phone it in? Were they pressured to include branding over functionality?
David Platt has been a software industry expert for the better part of 3 decades and pulls no punches when it comes to the design and user experience he encounters.

Join us for an evening of enlightening education, engaging conversation, and an opportunity to pick the brain of an industry legend.
