Speaking at WordCamp London 2017

From 17 to 19 March 2017, I was present at WordCamp London. And it was special: it was my first time as a speaker at such an event! The subject of my presentation was:

The importance of Information Architecture: how to organise your content to improve user experience

In other words: the importance of information architecture: how do you organise content to improve user experience?

In this 30-minute presentation, I discussed four main topics:

  1. What is information architecture
  2. Why is it important
  3. Information systems
  4. How do you properly apply information architecture?

My presentation is also recorded on video (ieks!). And if you can listen through the amount of "ehhhhs", here it is:
