Unicorn Quest: How 3 Teams Blend UX & Dev Skills

User Experience (UX) is a hot topic. It seems that everyone wants to hire people who have skills in UX, visual design and front-end development. Some people call this person a "unicorn." Do unicorns really exist?

This panel will feature participants from three different companies who build Web and mobile products with small, collaborative tams. Brittany Hunter, (Atomic Object), Courtney Hemphill (Carbon Five) and Jonathan Berger (Pivotal Labs) will share what it takes to work on a team of software generalists who are jointly responsible for UX, visual design and development.
