There are numerous definitions for User Experience, but without going too deep, we can define it as the holistic experience for the customer who uses a product or a service. Now when designing & developing software products, providing a good user experience is often overlooked in Sri Lanka. However there is a growing interest in the UX field, which was ignited by the UXColombo meetups which started back in 2013. We are finally realizing the importance of good UX.
Now it is being taken a step further, as the first ever UX conference is going to be held this month, on the 19th of March. The conference would be taking place at the BMICH and will feature the following 8 sessions.
