At 11:15am we gather one last time in the Ballroom for a powerful and encouraging keynote from Kate O’Neill, Tech Humanism: Shaping the Future of Meaningful Human Experiences. A self-described “Tech Humanist” Kate builds a strong case for why the future of humanity is in creating more meaningful, dimensional, and integrated experiences, and how emerging technologies can be included in this kind of human-centric design. Kate offers an inspiring and useful framework for designers, strategists, or anyone creating experiences for humans.


We hope you had a fabulous DevLearn! See you back here in 2020!
