    Episode 033 - The ORCA Sprint with Sophia V. Prater

    Episode 033 - The ORCA Sprint with Sophia V. Prater

    In this solo episode of the podcast (and final episode of this season), Sophia talks about a new concept called "The ORCA Sprint." A week-long OOUX journey teams can take to tackle their projects head-on with the methodology of ORCA (tackling objects, relationships, calls-to-action, and attributes). Sophia will take you through each day of the ORCA Sprint schedule going step by step with recommended tools and templates included. And she's looking for feedback! We recommend you listen to this episode in front of your computer so that you can follow along and take notes. 

    Following this episode, the OOUX Podcast will be going on hiatus until the fall.

    Episode 032 - How to "Dev-ign" with Keith Rich and Anthony Gallo

    Episode 032 - How to "Dev-ign" with Keith Rich and Anthony Gallo

    Keith Rich and Anthony Gallo join us from Think Company, a bespoke UX and software firm out of Philadelphia. Anthony, the "engineer" of Think Company, began his career in system administration. He took learning how things work "under the hood" to a new level when he later became a self-taught developer. Keith, the "midfielder" at Think Company, comes from Pharma advertising and is passionate about prototyping new ideas and bridging the gaps between design and development.

    In this episode of the podcast, Sophia chats with Keith and Anthony about how they discovered OOUX, how they use it at Think Company, and what it means to "dev-ign."
