Join us and our guest of honor, Caroline Sober-James to learn how you can tap into the business complexity-wrangling power of object-oriented user experience (OOUX) to plan, design, build, and deliver better APIs.

Caroline leads the UX practice at Acumium, a digital agency in Madison, WI, with deep expertise in strategy, design, and technology. She works closely with her clients and her team to design good-looking, goal-oriented, and highly functional websites and applications that allow people to get important stuff done quickly and easily. As a recent guest on the OOUX Podcast, she talked about how she uses OOUX to collaborate with her clients and save time on complex projects.

Caroline is a Certified OOUX Strategist and also a dedicated mentor within the OOUX community.

She loves pragmatic UX, radical candor, and getting shit done. She likes to say the essence of her job is to “make people happy,” in all the ways that manifests itself. She loves her job, her team, and Mondays (yes, really).
