    2 Kinds of Design

    In our Season 2 premier, Larry King and Roman Bercot discuss why Industrial age design practices don’t hold up in the cloud era. Modern product design and development teams must adopt an iterative, experiment-driven approach.

GetPennyStrong ,

Awesomeness!

I enjoy listening to these two. I like the way they are able to share about UX design in a way I can understand. Plus, I like their little diddly in the beginning.
