How Proficient Can a UX Bootcamp Make You?

April 28, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm PDT

What can you expect from getting a UX education (bootcamps, online courses, university programs)? Unraveling the debate on Bootcamps.

About this Event

Bootcamps and other CX/UX schools are always a hot debate and very polarizing. But why is there so much conflict and disagreement? How can the school tell you your work is great and you’re job-ready, but then hiring managers, UX veterans, and others say you’re not job ready? Come learn about my “Phases of Proficiency” model that explains what all the pro-bootcamp/anti-bootcamp fuss is about. Let’s talk about levels of proficiency and what you can expect from most UX education (bootcamps, online courses, and even university programs).

Speaker Debbie Levitt demonstrates how her “Phases of CX Proficiency” model unravels the pro/con debate over UX bootcamps.

  • Students and Graduates of a UX Bootcamp (any), University Program, Self-Taught

    Debbie Levitt, CXO of Delta CXhas been a CX and UX strategist, designer, and trainer since the 1990s. As a “serial contractor” who lived in the Bay Area for most of the 2010s, Debbie has influenced interfaces at Sony, Wells Fargo, Constant Contact, Macys.com, Etsy, and a variety of Silicon Valley startups. Clients have given her the nickname, “Mary Poppins,” because she flies in, improves everything she can, sings a few songs, and flies away to her next adventure.

    Her “DevOps ICU” book and training teach non-CX roles about CX, why it’s done by specialists, and how to integrate it into teams and processes. Her “Delta CX” book and training teach companies how to improve customer satisfaction, predict and mitigate business risk, and increase ROI by investing in great customer experiences.

    Outside of CX work, and sometimes during CX work, Debbie enjoys singing symphonic prog goth metal, opera, and New Wave.
