Digital product development for social innovation







Join us on Saturday September 23th 2017 for the N3XTCODER Workshop with the Social Entrepreneurship Network Germany (SEND) and become a #changemaker!

The N3XTCODER Workshop is designed in a way that you can either join track 1 or track 2:

Track 1: User Experience and User Interface Design

You will be able to enhance your skills and expand your knowledge by working on the new Social Entrepreneurship Network campaign website. Learn with Prof. Gabor Kovacs (design academy berlin) and UX/UI design expert Audrey Liehn. This track will focus on identifying roadblocks in the User Experience and User Interface and how to analyze and design for better performance and conversion. PLEASE NOTE: This track is in German language. 


Track 2: Technical Product Management: Essential tools and methodologies to realize your product vision

This track is designed for founders and product owners, interested in an overview of the tools, analytics and choices necessary to build a digital product or start up. This workshop will help you to navigate through the landscape of buzzwords like MVP, Agile, Lean and to choose the right tools and the right people to get started. Learn with N3XTCODER CTO and coach Jonathan Moore who draws on his experience on 15 years in tech. This track is in English language.


For our workshop we teamed up with the Social Entrepreneurship Network Germany, that aims to become a strong voice and representative to all the #changemakers in Germany. Together we can grow this network and develop their website into a tool that helps to enshrine social innovation into Berlin and Europe’s politics.
