After day two of Everett McKay's UX Design Essentials course in Atlanta, Jon sat down live with Everett to find out how a developer like himself transformed into a UX instructor - and why UX matters. In this sixteen minute chat, the guys also talk about why intuitive design is a useless cliche (but not a useless concept), why all software has a personality, and why design concepts like forgiveness can change UX for the better. Everett also shares his view on why UX is gaining momentum in the enterprise.
