      Org design for design orgs: The workshop
      Peter  Merholz  (Snagajob), Kristin Skinner (Capital One)
      As the move to establish in-house design teams accelerates, there's very little common wisdom on what makes for a successful design organization. Design requires not just process and methods but savvy with organizational and operational matters. Peter Merholz and Kristin Skinner shine a light on the unsung activities of actually running a design team, exploring what works and what doesn't.

      Designing intelligence and trust with chatbots
      Austin Beer (Huge)
      Austin Beer demonstrates how applying design thinking to chatbots can help create more trustworthy experiences and allow you to quickly experiment with designing artificial intelligence. As you work in teams to design your own chatbots, you'll explore human-centered methods, ethical issues, design process, and the heart of conversation design in order to create revolutionary experiences.

      Explore, persuade, destroy: Storyboarding for product development
      Abi Jones (Google)
      Storyboarding converts brainstorming sessions into a real product direction and, in turn, provides a vision that your team can return to throughout the design and development process. Abi Jones explains how to place product ideas in the context of user needs through storyboarding, as she walks you through refining product concepts and shares a variety of sketching techniques and product stories.

      Voice user interface design: How to wireframe for voice
      Ann Thyme-Gobbel (D+M Group (Denon Marantz))
      Ann Thyme-Gobbel outlines the concepts, tools, best practices, and challenges for designing voice-based experiences. You'll learn how to write sample dialogues, build audio wireframes, and test prototypes for voice user interfaces.
      1:30pm-5:00pm (3h 30m)
      Make fast, learn fast: Introduction to prototyping with Arduino
      Kathryn McElroy (IBM Watson), Kelly Lohr (IBM)
      Kathryn McElroy and Kelly Lohr walk you through physical prototyping with the open source electronics platform Arduino. You’ll learn the basics of prototyping with electronics, including tips and tricks on how to get started and how to write code for microcontrollers. It’s easier than you think. You’ll walk away with an Arduino starter kit and the skills to keep building when you get home.
