Bot What? - Intentionally designing conversational experiences. Everyone is talking about chatbots, conversational AI, and digital assistants. What are some of the principles needed to "make" a great conversation? We will explore the artful exchange of information, in our usual interactive manner.  *Please note that the date for this event has been moved from the first Monday of September and is now on September 6, 2019 due to Labor Day* HanaHaus Design Bites Meetup "It is easier to act your way into a new way of thinking than to think your way into a new way of acting" - Jerry Sternin. If design-thinking is all the rage, why are your skills not getting any better? Has your ability to brainstorm improved? Are you now sketching your ideas, rather than writing them? We sum up the current situation as: too much process, too little craft. Our stance is: design should be learned skills-first. As you get better at applying your skills and reflect on your experience, you will naturally develop a better understanding of the process as well. Think design-doing instead of design-thinking. Now, we know just how overwhelming it can be to decide where to start. That's why we created Design Bites. Each session of d.bites takes one skill and teaches it with rigor. See examples from real projects, try it out a minimum of three times and learn from others in a fun, lighthearted way. As you get better at one skill, you will find yourself getting better at other skills, too. Learning how to interview better will dramatically improve your understanding of your product, and your validation skills, too! Like any good gym instructor, we will push you to do more reps as we push the envelope on design-doing skills ourselves. You do not need any previous knowledge of design-thinking to join this series. Just a healthy curiosity on design-thinking and a willingness to be nudged to action. We will not be covering the design process but will refer to it. If this is your first time
