Communication techniques and social engineering hacks for software engineers
The Career Design Patterns soft skills framework consists of four collections.
Your Individual UX
User experience is more than just the UI on a piece of software. It is the entire journey a user takes while interacting with a company’s products and services. Similarly, a person’s individual user experience is not just how they dress or whether they prefer written versus oral communication. An individual’s UX is an outsider’s perspective; it is the experience others have when interacting with the individual.
We help software engineers refine their individual user experience for building trust, brand loyalty and higher engagement with peers, employers and customers.
Extend your individual user experience by leveraging the right Presentation patterns at the right time.
