Design Thinking for Developers: Think out-of-the-box

Bapusaheb Patil

Android Developer & UX Designer

Design Thinking isn't just for UX Designers. It's for everyone.
It's a human-centric, empathy-driven approach to solve problems with out-of-the-box thinking.

In this talk, we'll go over what Design Thinking is, what it looks like for Developers, and how to put it into practice with the help of Design Thinking workshops.
