1. The ‘Why’ Factor
It’s always important to know the “Why” before the “How”. The best and strongest way to grow in this domain is to focus on the core basics. Building your career on the basis of specific frameworks & libraries like Angular, Backbone, React alone has a very short shelf-life. We consider this domain to be the last mile that connects the brand with the consumer, acting as a bridge between the design and the technology community and keeping Experience at the center is what differentiates us. Looking at all aspects of development & programming while focusing on performance, with Experience at the core, leveraging facets of rendering, usability, interactivity & accessibility is what helps elevate one as a complete Experience Technologist.
3. Combine Technology With Creativity
The relationship between creativity and technology is quite interesting – since it’s difficult to imagine the sustenance of one without the other. There are different ways to solve a problem and technology is an enabler of those solutions. If you look at the list of innovations from a touch screen phone to a self-driving car, nothing would have been possible without the creative and effective use of technology. It’s said that all the technology has already been invented – what we are doing now is exploring new means and mediums of using them which is what defines creativity – questioning the supremacy debate of left brain vs right brain.
