At the start of the month, CareerFoundry’s very own Head of UX Design, Jeff Humble, attended UX Alive — Europe’s biggest international event on User Experience and Usability.

Some 350 attendees gathered at the Fairmont Quasar Istanbul for two full days of workshops and talks, and Jeff had some fascinating insights to share on The Future of Voice UI.

Jeff’s presentation forms part of the extensive research that went into our VUI Design Specialization Course, built in collaboration with Amazon Alexa.
