Our design conference Roadmap is next week!

Design innovation is the future of technology products used by both consumers and enterprise users. In an article this weekend, Kyle Fugere of dunnhumby Ventures noted that he values startups with “well-formed user experience and user interface design elements over more technical elements.” Why? Because an awesome user experience correlates with “a deep understanding of the customer and how to deliver the product to the market.”

To capture the trends and the future of user experience and user interfaces, Om Malik and I have put together our design tech conference Roadmap, which kicks off next week on the night of November 17th and runs the 18th and the 19th at the SFJazz Center. It’ll be a culmination of the most creative minds in the intersection of tech, design and entrepreneurialism. I can’t believe it’s just around the corner and it’s our fourth Roadmap!

Moderated by: Om Malik — Founder, Gigaom Speaker: Tony Fadell — Founder and CEO, Nest Labs
