What you will learn during the UX/UI design bootcamp in Berlin

Prework

In the first 40 hours of your UX/UI design training, you’ll learn the basics of design thinking, interaction design and state-of-the-art design software. Once you’ve received instructions for setting up your tools, you’ll complete specially designed exercises to:

1. create your first usability evaluations and site redesign

2. develop your design sensitivity through fascinating activities

3. perform basic HTML and CSS practice work that is essential for the bootcamp’s design implementation section.

Once you’ve wrapped up these online prep materials, you’ll be all set to start the course off right!

Module 1: Understand user experience

During weeks one and two, you will learn the fundamental UX/UI industry frameworks: design thinking, agile methodologies and lean structuring. Then hone your UX research methods, interaction design principles and information architecture.

Topics include:

- Applying design thinking in conjunction with lean structures and agile methods.

- Learning user-centered design and conducting research on the needs of your users and businesses.

- Sharpening your skills in interaction design and information architecture.

- Building your first interactive prototypes for testing.

In week three your first project begins! Manage your first product design project with agile methodology to discover your users and then plan a product roadmap to solve their problems. Finish up with guerrilla testing and presentations to enhance your public speaking skills.

Module 2: Learn to design user interfaces

In weeks four and five you will uncover the fundamentals of branding and design for UI close-loop design. Then implement this knowledge to generate engaging, elegant and scalable user interfaces.

Topics include:

- Generating original ideas for digital products and bringing them to production.

- Mastering design systems in order to create a fully animated interactive prototype.

- Testing your prototype to balance market demands and desirability.

Week six calls for your second project: creating a state-of-the-art website design with engaging animations and a refined style! Document the entire process to ensure a smooth hand-off to “Development.” Then, after completing your project, you will present it to the “shareholders.”

Module 3: Design implementation

The final module begins in weeks seven and eight, where you’ll start implementing your designs in real life. Build your first responsive one-page website by utilizing the developers’ best practices you’ve learned.

Topics include:

- Designing your site for production.

- Considering technological constraints from the very beginning.

- Preparing all of the correct assets.

- Learning essential soft skills, such as portfolio fine-tuning and client connections.

Your final, and by far most challenging project takes place during the last week of the module and the course. Develop a digital product for a problem of your choosing. When you finish your project, you will compete alongside your classmates in our live Hackshow. Do you have what it takes to win?

Artists and the community they formed drove this one-of-a-kind city into a new age of development and growth. In turn, these communities have formed effective lobbies to promote their spaces, rights and events. Within this affordable, safe, inclusive and collaborative atmosphere, the UX/UI sector has exploded and helped push Berlin to become one of the top startup hubs in Europe.
World-renowned conferencesNumerous incredible events have arisen in this hotbed of creative energies and design-oriented startups. Among them is webinale, a holistic web conference for digital professionals, trendsetters and designers. Dozens of speakers touch on subjects ranging from ideation and design thinking, online marketing, user experience design, and web design and development.
Hands-on UX/UI gatheringsBerlin’s massive UX/UI ecosystem is also home to hundreds of meetups and work-groups that gather in all manner of spaces and formats to focus on the bleeding edge of the sector. The constant conversation has led to more hands-on events, like UXAlive. This the largest international UX/UI event featuring both presentations and workshops. Speakers from up and coming companies share their experiences and expertise, then guide you through hands-on workshops.
