Looking to sharpen your UX skills?
Good news! On April 30th & May 1st, two leading UX designers from Google will be conducting a 2-day hands-on user experience masterclass in Tunis. This is a free event.
In recent years, design and user-centered thinking have been embraced by business leaders–not just as a way to do design, but as a way to create an effective product development strategy. By attending this class with your cross-functional team, you will learn basic user-centered design processes and how to apply them throughout your entire product development cycle.
We will cover the process of taking product ideas from concept to launch, including sketching, user testing, prototyping, and making continuous improvements after launch to keep your users engaged and satisfied.
< Update: This class is moved to a later date! Stay Tuned for an updated schedule>
Is my startup a good fit?
This class is geared towards startups and companies that would like to improve their product development and shipping process with design thinking, and to establish a more user-centered process. We encourage teams of 4-6 stakeholders representing a wide range of functions (engineers, product managers, designers) to attend. Attendance is limited and it is free to participate, so complete the application form to be considered. Applications will be accepted until April 15th.
Please note: If selected, your team will be required to complete a pre-workshop exercise prior to the first day of class.

We plan to cover a wide range of topics over the 2-days with a focus on the following:
- the process of taking product ideas from concept to launch, including sketching

- how to drive continuous improvements after launch to keep your users engaged
