    I oddly feel the same way towards using the UX title

    I have used the UX title for over 5 years. I never went to school for HCI, but I continually read books about the topic. It wasn't until 2 years ago I started to actually do anything UX related in my projects. I felt like a fraud because I don't think I deserved to use that title. It always left a sour taste in my mouth, but I knew I had to use it for my past company.

    Even today I still get squirmiest despite all the research, interviews, and usability tests I've done.

    I prefer the couple sort paragraphs each section. I think people skim more often. The

    1. Witty Open Liner that summarized the project.
    2. What this company and problem statement
    3. Feature 1 how we to solve it
    4. Feature 2 how we solve it,
    5. More pics of the app
    6. Result Summary and data stats

    I would add any common questions you receive. If you always get asked about your tech stack, are you 508, what systems have you integrated with. I would add that in , but in brief. You can always link to other pages about your companies abilities.

    I have a serious question for iPhone users... How often do you use Siri?

    I personally hate it and try to disable it on my phone. Every year I try it and never works. Especially find it frustrating when it kicks on when I don't want it. I asked my colleagues as well and they said no. Which lets me wonder who uses it?

  • Posted to I'm passionate about UI & UX where do I start?, Sep 10, 2018

    The goal is to find what you like and what drives you. There are many different elements and positions in both fields.

    For Design

    Practice. Practice. Practice.

    • Start recreating designs right off of dribbble. This will help you learn modern design techniques and styles as well as your design software.
    • Play around in recreating your favorite websites. This will help you explode more creativity. I did a lot of spec work for my one job in the past. Annoying, but help me explore new ideas.
    • Start picking up freelance jobs and flip projects quickly. This will help your skills working with people and around parameters. You will get abused and leave you crying in the corner. Lots of life sessions with this one, but joyful as well.

    For UX

    Learn, Apply, Fail, and repeat

    • Read blog articles, books, (lean ux, ux research, just enough research, User story mapping, sprints)
    • Apply what you learned in one of your freelance jobs. Fail and adapt to why it didn't work as well for the next time you do it.

    Ha, I actually did this today. I skimmed the article and share it with my personal experience. Half the time, I try to be that "Redditor" that summarizes the article in their comment, so you don't have to read it.

    Current me: I love these simple portfolios, I really want to update mine from 3 years ago.

    One week Later: Finally! I am working my portfolio. I love this.

    Two Weeks Later: Ugh this design looks soo boring. I want to do more!

    Three Weeks Later: I give up

    2 Months Later: I love these simple portfolios, I really want to update mine from 3 years ago.

    I like the idea, but I would hate the never ending feedback on everything I buy. It would be interesting to have a review field with that. I am sure they have already have data points on how often users repurchase similar items to auto populate that duration field.

    I am guessing Apple earbuds would have like durability of 6 month how many times I lose them.

    My personal opinion the larger problem is the amount of knock-off crap they allow on the site and how easy it is to create fake reviews. This creates fake confidence that this product is good when it isn't.
