Home    Showcase    My 5 Favorite Movies on User Experience for July 2012

In my attempt to stay up to date with my profession I attend conferences from time to time (latest being the Emerce conversion training in Amsterdam) or watch live shows (such as Which Test Won) if I couldn’t make it to the conference.

Searching the web for interesting articles I stumbled upon some movies on User Experience of which I made a small selection. Here are my five favorite movies on User Experience.

Editorial side note: You are more interested in reading about User Experience instead of watching these videos? Maybe you can have a look at my selection of UX books.
