The UXLX eXperience
UXLX in Lisbon was a blast, one of the most inspiring conferences I have attended so far. A brilliant mix of high quality speakers, really valuable workshops, great networking opportunities, awesome food and lots of talented and inspiring people from all over the world.
A lot has been written about UXLX on Johnny Holland, Usabilitytalks, Quodis, Frankwatching (in dutch) and even sketched by my friend Eva-Lotta Lamm and by Bauke Schildt, so I won’t go into details again, just pointing out my favorite sessions:
The Conference Highlights

The Sticky Quotes
- Question the obvious.
- Good UX is all about communication.
- Find existing behaviors and log on to.
- We must break down the silos.
- When everyone zigs, zag.
- We write stories not manuals.
- We design experiences, not procedures.
For those of you who couldn’t make it to UXLX – you will find most of the presentations on Lanyrd.

HotGloo was a sponsor of UXLX and we were also offered to give a talk at the conference (find the presentation here) – so a big thank you to Bruno Figueiredo and the whole team behind the scenes – you did an amazing job!
