UXLX, UX Design Conference in Lisbon

I attended the main conference day with some of my favorite speakers on stage. In this article I’m sharing my favorite notes and quotes from the day.

That sound is the ringing of the bell, indicating that a presentation is about to start. Everyone in the agency is there, accounting, finance, management, developers and designers.
