Our course is designed for people who want to become a UX designer and would like to learn how to design and research interactive solutions in a way that will allow them to achieve the goals of users and business. You don't need to have previous designing experience. We will teach you everything from scratch.
From zero to UX Designer hero. How to do it?
We will show you the whole path from collecting requirements, creating concepts, through preparing prototypes and their verification and cooperation with the team that is implementing your solution. You will learn all aspects related to the work of a UX Designer and create your first project under our supervision.
You will be able to become an independent UX Designer or a team member with all the skills needed for the job. You can further develop your career by specializing more in the design aspect, conducting research or analysis.
Bootcamp. How do we teach?
We teach by using the bootcamp method. The word "bootcamp" comes from the US Army and means extreme training which transforms recruits into proper soldiers - capable of fighting immediately. Programming bootcamps are intense, practice-oriented training programs. Students will spend many hours working hard. After finishing our bootcamp you are a junior programmer ready to go to work (but also to continue learning).
- We focus on small groups and a relaxed atmosphere!
We run our courses online or on-site in Warsaw, Poland or at your company. Throughout the whole course you work in a small group - just like in foreign language schools. This way you learn faster but you also prepare to work in a team - because a programmer does not work on a desert island - you need to be able to work in a team!
- We focus on practice and contact with the trainer!
No boring lectures - you only learn practical things with us - our course is more of a workshop than the lectures you know from a university. There is always a trainer with you who you can ask for help at any time. We know from experience that theory alone is never enough. To program professionally you need to have specific practical skills - then you become an attractive candidate on the job market.
Learning from home
The course is organized in daytime and extramural (weekend) modes. In both cases there is a break between the blocks of classes - a week or 2 weeks. The break is needed for individual study at home, consolidation of knowledge and practice. Your trainer will provide you with properly prepared materials for learning at home and tasks to which you must apply yourself. A large number of exercises will make you consolidate the acquired knowledge.
If you have a problem with the task - you can always contact your trainer.
Course program - what will you learn?
The program of the course was created by a team of experienced UX and UI analysts who have been working in the industry for many years. Our trainers are practitioners, they lead teams or conduct research commissioned by external companies. The course is divided into modules and designed so that you can learn from our specialists exactly what is needed in the job market. The course will give you a solid foundation that is necessary for everyone!
What will you learn?
Thinking like a designer
UX design combines knowledge from many fields - psychology, technology, and visual communication. One of the most important goals of the course is to teach participants to think like a UX designer. Adopting the user's point of view and properly defining problems is necessary for the subsequent effects of work to bring the desired value.
Working with people
Working with users of various technologies is crucial for UX - both from the perspective of discovering and addressing their needs, as well as validating our work with them as designers. The course contains the basics needed to develop soft skills such as assertiveness, active listening, and effective communication.
Designing user interfaces at multiple levels of detail
When looking for this course, you have surely come across divisions into UX, UI, IA - we will try to disenchant these concepts and show you what areas you will be responsible for as UX designers. We will design mainly for the web and mobile applications, but we will also try to show that using this approach and tools, you can design virtually any technology-based product. Thanks to the available templates and design systems, we will be able to create a product visualization that is very similar or fully reflects the appearance of the final product.
The continuing development of design tools makes it easier and easier to create realistic, interactive prototypes of user interfaces. The ability to create a good prototype allows you to check whether the product is useful even before it is implemented thanks to the work of programmers.
Working in a team/organization
The work of a UX designer requires communication with users but also daily cooperation with programmers, business representatives and analysts. Understanding the role of a UX designer in the wider context of technology companies, software houses and start-ups is crucial to properly fulfil your duties as a designer.
Course program - adapted to the job market
The program of the course is focused on preparing participants for their first independent project - from the discovery phase, through prototyping, to research with users. The main areas we will cover are:
- UX design in the context of projects and cooperation with other IT specialists
- designing and prototyping the user interface
- user research, workshops and key skills needed to carry them out
After completing the course, you will receive a certificate signed by ALX with a detailed list of your acquired skills. Each certificate has a unique identifier and an electronic version (regardless of whether the paper version has also been ordered). If you wish, you can share your certificate by pasting its URL – for example to your profile on a social or professional network or into your CV.
Trainers - knowledge combined with practice
The trainer who will run this course is a lecturer and practitioner in one person. Our trainers come from the best Polish universities and have been carrying out projects for external companies, organizations, and public institutions for many years. They work in the profession on a daily basis, which gives them the opportunity to conduct ultra-interesting classes, filled with examples from real-life projects.
