October Brantina: Data As Empathy
Thursday, October 22 – 9am PT / noon ET / 4pm UTC
Mozilla Mountain View + Air Mozilla
To build products people love, you must understand those people. User research and user-centered design help get us there, but once we have a sense of how our audiences think and behave, how can we go beyond the anecdotal to extrapolate to the macro? What ways can we better understand the needs of millions of users who think, act and operate differently than us?
Our October speaker Frances Haugen will share from her product management and software engineering experiences with products used by millions of Google and Yelp customers. She’ll help us understand how data – done ‘right’ – connects us to millions of users we don’t know personally. And she’ll outline what doing data right means for product development, and how product owners can build things their users love.
Speaker: As both a Senior Product Manager, Software Engineer and Data Scientist for companies including Yelp and Google, Frances has worked at the intersection of data, design and humans throughout her career. An Electrical and Computer Engineering undergrad, Frances says she sees the world as comprised of hi and low cast filters.
Host: Matt Grimes, User Advocacy
Questions: Submit questions for Frances during the event on IRC #AirMozilla.
