Welcome back to Poland Dan Maccarone! He might not be the French president but he is an 18 year UX industry stalwart and owner of Charming Robot in New York City. Dan shares his thoughts on the parallels that can be drawn between theatre and User Experience Design, he tells us about his own podcast ‘Story in a bottle’ and shares his opinion about the hallowed UX “Ninja”. His comments on what makes for a good all-round UX’er is particularly useful to someone looking to break into the industry. We caught up with Dan at the recent 2017 Product Development Days Conference in Krakow, Poland.
