Justinmind is proud to be sponsoring Bay Area Software Engineers’ next meet-up, a panel on how product managers, engineers and UXers can work together in harmony.

The title of BASE’s (Bay Area Software Engineers) next meet-up event says it all. “Product Managers are from Pluto, Engineers are from Saturn and UXers are from Uranus….“., to be held on August 4th 2016 at Montgomery Street’s Aconex Offices, will bring together talking heads from the three sectors to discuss one of the thorniest issues in software development – how to work together as a team. Justinmind is thrilled to be one of the panel event sponsors.

UX, Product Managers and Engineers

While UXers, PMs and Software Engineers all have the same ultimate goal – to produce an awesome, successful digital product – their approaches and priorities can occasionally be at odds. UXers are of course focused on understanding and incorporating user needs and behaviors, whereas both Product Managers and Engineers are both product-centred – the latter on construction and raw functionality, the former on the market and product context. Balancing these views can be one of the biggest challenges to pulling off a successful software development project.
